We have been digging Andrew James Abijian’s work over on Instagram for a while and were thrilled to find out he’s a Mastin Labs fan and user! We love finding out the how and the why behind photographers who inspire us to think differently and push us to be better photographers ourselves.
Kathryn Stevens: Tell us the story of how you came to be a photographer…
Andrew James Abijian: I have always been fascinated with movies and with visual storytelling of all genres. So, when I was 12 years old my father passed down to me his 35mm camera that he had received as his high school graduation present. From there I started shooting rolls of film and making shoebox cameras. To this day I am still as thrilled as Christmas morning to get developments back.
