My name is Esmer Kazvinova. Originally from Los Angeles, I now live in the Bay Area of California with my family. I’m a photographer. Since summer of 2019 my favorite subjects have been people. I love the process of portrait photography. How it’s not just about technique, it’s about trust. My photographs illuminate the beauty intrinsic in all my subjects, whether they’re aware of that beauty or not. When I’m working on a photoshoot, my go to equipment are my manual film cameras, the Minolta SRT or Mamiya C220, and my iPhone. When possible, I process my own negatives and develop my own prints in a darkroom. Currently, I am working hard to get my website up and running. Please visit my Instagram page to find it in the bio.
