About Ari Rex
Ari Rex is an award winning photographer based in Canberra.
His interest in photography started when he was a little boy. His father had an old Zorki camera and Ari was fascinated by it, since then his passion for photography kept growing and expanding.
Ari has worked in many areas of photography, winning awards in the technically challenging but exciting fields of astro-photography and macro photography. These are two areas where the camera sees more than the human eye ever possibly could. For Ari there is nothing as magical as when the camera captures the full splendor of the Milky Way arching over the horizon. It is a skill he loves to share through specialist courses for those keen to perfect their own experience of capturing the stars.
Ari holds an Advanced Diploma of Photography from CIT, Canberra.

"My photography is a visual symphony of everything I have lived, all the music I’ve heard, all the books I’ve read and all the people I’ve loved!!"
“I appreciate the often unseen beauty of everyday life, and I strive to capture that in every picture. I want my audience to feel a connection to my photographs through the story that they are trying to tell.”
