I don’t typically share photos of myself on here. I’ve always thought of Instagram as more of a place to share my art then my life. Lately though, I’ve been hearing that it would be nice to have some idea of who’s behind the lens.
So here I am!
My name is Aaron Hinkey. I was born in Camrose Alberta Canada 🇨🇦 and lived my childhood in a little village on the west coast of Alaska called Unalakleet.
Since then I’ve spent most of my time back and forth between Fairbanks Alaska and parts of the Northwestern states including Missoula Montana, where I attended the University of Montana
Earlier in life I desperately wanted to be an architect. Although I decided that was not the path for me, I am currently living out my dream by designing and building a house just north of Fairbanks. While this may be the biggest challenge of my life so far, I am absolutely loving the process and can not wait to have it completed this spring.
Thanks to everyone for following along, supporting me, hiring me, and encouraging me to push my creative limits in photography. I couldn’t ask for a better gig that would give me the flexibility to maintain the crazy lifestyle I’ve come to consider normal.
Thanks also to @taratea for snapping this sweet photo of me driving through the middle of nowhere Alaska, probably rambling on about the ethical dilemmas inherent of self driving car technology 😂
