About Armin H. Ausejo

Written by Jae Holt:

“Armin H. Ausejo, a life-long resident of the Seattle area, developed an interest in visual media in his youth through historic art, movies, video games, desktop publishing and web design. After receiving his bachelor’s degree in Communications from the University of Washington in 2001, Armin discovered the automotive world and would take pictures at local automotive events. He took what he learned about digital media and applied it to his photography. He soon discovered you could do more than “take pictures.” You could create art. He invested in the proper equipment needed to take his hobby to the next level.

In 2004 a specialty magazine, Subiesport, put his talents to use. In the same year he returned to the University of Washington to complete his Master of Communications in Digital Media degree and continued to perfect his digital media and photography skills with World One Performance, and then with World CNG and NWMotiv.com.

Armin has since expanded his creativity beyond automotive and now specializes in people, scenic, and promotional photography. He strives to capture the realism of the moment, which is reflected in his natural, photojournalistic style of photography. He works closely with clients to achieve their individual expectations and believes that a camera can capture any emotion. If the shot is there, he will take it.”

Special thanks to Ryan Douthit and Josh Mackey for their mentorship and support.

He really enjoys helping and challenging others to become better in a field he has mastered. Thanks Armin for pushing photography to a higher level!"
Igor Podoprigora (Acingteam), New Milford, CT

“I have worked with Armin on numerous occasions for automotive enthusiast event marketing. His reputation for both the vehicles he builds and his ability to capture them on film is widely known in the Northwest. Ranging from vehicle feature photoshoots, to event coverage such as car shows and social gatherings, Armin has a great eye and talent. Coupled with his active involvement in the grassroots automotive scene of the Northwest, Armin is a credible source for both business and consumer needs. His approach both business and personal relationships makes him a pleasure to work with, as well as valuable and reliable contact for various projects.”
Matt Teske, CEO/Creative Director, Sisün, Inc., Portland, OR

“Armin was really easy to work with. He worked with our other photographer Tanya to give my husband and I pictures that we would love. Both Tanya and Armin had a great eye and have exceptional picture quality.”
Russell and Suzy Rogers, Redmond, WA

"I was always into photography but never knew where to start. I joined the Subaru community and saw his thread. He then helped me get started with photography and showed me all the steps I must take. He is very talented at photography and I thank him for everything he has done for me. Without Armin I would have never improved my photography skills."
Pedro Vilar, NJ

“Armin’s range of talent and skills is hard to match. He has a truly unique set of skills that are of great value. He is clearly proficient with a wide range of media tools, photography, and marketing as a whole.”
David Fotheringham, Owner, M Junction, Bellevue, WA

"Armin has been the single most influential photographer in my life. No knowlege has ever been witheld, and he has never belittled me for asking the simplest of questions. Honestly, I'm not sure where I'd be without him, which is why I now see him as more of a mentor than an influence."
Andrew Thompson (VisualEchos), Missouri
