But my full name is Alvaro Aro. Let me tell you a little bit about me...
I was born and raised in Peru, immigrated to the USA at 21, served in the United States Marine Corps, proud father of two handsome boys and passionate music and food lover. I'm also a director of photography based out of beautiful St. Louis, Missouri.
I began pursuing my career in Motion Pictures and Television at The Academy of Art University in San Francisco, then, after getting out of the Marines and settling in St. Louis; I made a transfer to Webster University where I got my Bachelor of Arts in Film Production with a Minor in Photography.
My work has included corporate and commercial projects for companies such as Boeing, CBS, Red Robin, Glade, Lysol, Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital, The Greater Saint Louis Community Foundation, The American Heart Association, Reliv International, LK Designs, Exotic Motors Midwest, The Rome Group, Workhorse Construction Group, Koplar Properties, and others. I've also photographed music videos and several award-winning narrative short films.
I currently offer packages with my own Canon EOS and Arri Alexa Mini cameras as well as the Freefly Systems Movi Pro, but don't forget to take a look at my "GEAR" tab for extra equipment.
Thank you for stopping by,
