*seeking writer for an official sounding third-person “about me” - until then, this is the best I can do..
My name is Neave (like Leave). I picked up a camera in late 2011, and before that, I went to a tech school in Downtown Los Angeles and got an AA in Graphic Design with an emphasis on branding. Didn’t do much with it as far as a career goes but at least I know how to remove a pimple from a face.
Before that, I attended a bunch of different city colleges trying to figure out what I wanted to do with my life (because, you know, you need to figure out what to do with THE REST OF YOUR LIFE in your early twenties). I eventually dropped out and spent most of my time on the internet. This was around 2007-2008 where social media was becoming a thing, and that is where I realized I have a love for visual arts (through scrolling Myspace and then Tumblr endlessly).
And before all of that, I was half sperm, half egg; came together as one, and was born in Redondo Beach, California. At the age of four my parents and I moved to Tehran, Iran; and at the age of 16 I moved back to LA (the suburbs of LA).
Now let’s bring it somewhat present times;
Right now I’m working on a handbook for photographers called Photo Zero and am trying to stick to…ah who give a shit. Are you still reading this?
In short, I’m a walking hashtag like the rest of us. Happy to be here.
