But my full name is Alvaro Aro. 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... and yes, I LOOOVE visuals, like... a lot.
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 transferred to Webster University where I obtained my Bachelor of Arts in Film Production with a Minor in Photography.
My work includes 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 films.
I currently offer packages with 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 your project may need.
Thank you for stopping by,
