Rochester based Cirque du Soleil artist turned photographer/videographer
Cirque Du Soleil performer turned photographer.Growing up in Rochester, NY, Avi spent his youth bouncing between a fascination with animation and a playful obsession with juggling and gymnastics. His interest in animation eventually brought him to Academy of Art University in San Francisco, where he studied Graphic Design and New Media before deciding to join the circus school in Quebec City, Canada. A year later, he landed a job with Cirque du Soleil and began working as an acrobat and fire juggler. During his career as a circus performer, friends and colleagues began approaching him for photo and video shoots; soon what started as a few odd jobs turned into a passion. His drive for creativity and excellence has allowed him to create images with some of the best circus artists in the world.
Avi is a true artist who approaches everything he does with professionalism, poise, and kindness. I look forward to hiring him for all of my photography and videography needs from now on. He responds promptly, takes initiative, is flexible and calm, and is always prepared and productive. He offers a great value and I highly suggest that anyone interested work with him!
Avi’s many attributes, creative artist, skilled cameraperson, thoughtful editor, and organized businessperson. What a rare skill set for one individual! In short, Avi is a gem.
Avi's work was right on spec., in the time he promised, and at the price we agreed to. He'll be my first choice in my next project!
Avi did a great job of filming with different cameras and angles- and then splicing /editing the results for the best presentation possible our event. Also, very nice packaging. Overall, excellent!
