Aaron RF Anderson

Bio


Long before Aaron RF Anderson was hired to shoot blockbuster musical acts and films, he was a skateboarding preteen, rolling his way around Salem, Oregon, trying to land tricks instead of gigs. But he quickly learned his creative abilities far exceeded his athletic talent. In hopes of keeping his gang of friends, Aaron picked up his parent's low-grade camcorder and transitioned his kick-flipping into film-flicking.

Shortly after, as a freshman in high school, he earned his first job as a photographer for the local newspaper, The Keizertimes, producing videos for his high school's news team and making short films for his friends and family in his free time.

Fascinated by the intersection of filmmaking and the human mind, Aaron continued to follow his passions at Portland State University where he double majored in visual communications and psychology. 

For his senior capstone project, he combined these explorations and produced a documentary film on the phenomena of the response of which would alter his trajectory forever. Applying psychological principals to a medium based on human perception, Aaron has gone from rail grinding in back alleys to sharing the stage with the largest musical acts and producing marketing content for top corporations in the world.

Despite these achievements, his grass roots game stays strong, as he still relishes in working on a local level with small business, entrepreneurs, soon-to-be-newlyweds, and artists within his community. He also enjoys mentoring and teaching, helping students and trainees grow into their own creative pursuits and etch a living off their passion.

As the oldest of three siblings, I've has always had a natural need to nurture and encourage people, young and old, in their pursuits, and guide them as their skills mature. Utilizing art and psychology helps me see the potential n every individual's strengths and passions.

As a small business founder and owner, Aaron focuses not only the important role young adults play in incorporating business and art, but also how vital it is to provide young people with mentors and educators who can help guide them. He encourages young people to push technical and artistic boundaries, and to risk a deeper level of engagement with the world that surrounds them, through documentation, artistic creation, and ultimately their individual interests. Drawing from his own experiences with amazing mentors and coaches, he approaches the world with a reciprocity in mind:


"They have helped my career, given me the guidance and confidence to take risks, and supported me when I have failed. I want hope to repay that same kindness but offering what I can to the next generation."
