Amir van der Vliet: Owner/Fine Art Photographer


I started doing Photography when I received my first 35mm film  camera (Olympus  OM series)  from my father, it  was  his  father’s  camera! I was only 12 and it was history from then on. By now at 38 I have photographed many different subjects, scenes, and moments in many parts of the world, and learnt from some of the finest photographers. One such  photographer, who is a dear friend, is on the board  of  the  Press  Photographers Association of  Los Angeles. She is a widely published Photojournalist and a respected critic of my work. I’ve been published in 3 different newspapers and have a substantial body of work from doing so. A popular online Los Angeles magazine called my work most original and interesting. I have won first place for my photography as well in a community gallery competition in San Clemente in California where there is a rich Art Culture. I also have over 400 followers on Instagram from Los Angeles, London, and New York. 

My Photography tells your story


My work is editorial in style with minimum direction given to my subjects. I use unique angles, depth of field settings, and composition. The work I will be presenting to you at delivery will be perfect artistically but true to my personal style.

I can provide you with the best in portrait photography


 Portrait Photography, besides Photojournalism has become my specialty. I direct my subjects much less than other photographers who make the session an uncomfortable chore. My directions are effective and succinct making the client relaxed creating more genuine poses and facial expressions. What I also excel at is artistic city and nature scenes which you can find on my Instagram where I sell the highest quality prints for your home or office priced at $1500 for a 11x14 in framed or $1800 for a 13x19. I use a 45.7 MP mirrorless Nikon Z7 with ProFoto B10 strobes, and a P5000 Epson Printer that prints spectacular images up to 17x22 in. I charge $1500 per hour of shooting plus expenses. I only book one job per week. Delivery of USB flash drive can take up to 3 weeks. 

Provide me with details about your ideas!
