About Aram

Aram’s journey into photography and journalism began a little later than most, in his early 30’s. Born in 1980’s London to artist parents Dorothea Wight and Marc Balakjian, Aram studied Computer Animation at the NCCA, graduating in 2006 into his first job at MPC, where he worked on the special effects for big-budget films such as Narnia and Harry Potter. In 2009, Aram quit film to start his own business: a web design agency which he ran successfully until 2015. However, the experience of losing both parents to cancer around this time had a profound impact on him. After spending time on the road and blogging about his journey, Aram discovered a love of exploring the world and telling people about it. There began his first steps into his next career.
