Achiamar (ash-i-mar) is my ultra-talented partner in photographic crime. We've shot weddings, yoga raves and fashion looks together. The day we met, we realized we both owned and loved the same lens (the nifty fifty!) and were eerily wearing the same shirt.
We started shooting for lululemon around the same time and cut our teeth in yoga studios, fitness haunts and trail running courses, learning together about shutter speed, light bounces and which yoga postures NOT to showcase in a clothing shoot (the upside-down ones).
She has a photography website that you should definitely check out.
One last thing about this half-Puerto Rican, half-Chinese dynamo: she's the only person named Achiamar who ever lived. That's right, it's a completely made up name. Truly unique. As is she.
And without further ado, here is Achiamar.
