Aron Kremer, principal and lead photographer

Creating great images requires creative vision and deliberate action.

Genki Art's principal and lead photographer, Aron Kremer, was exposed to photography at age ten. Aron took his first shots with a Kodak Brownie, a simple box camera, which taught him to recognize the importance of lighting. By the age of twelve, he had learned the basics by trial and error with a 35mm Kodak Retina IIIc and a Pentax Spotmatic IIa. 

Aron's interest in photography and the visual arts grew throughout high school, where he picked up basic design and darkroom skills. When he was sixteen, he interned for the acclaimed photographer Peter B. Kaplan in Manhattan. 

As an undergrad, Aron studied at the Pratt School of Art & Design in NYC and earned a BA in education from Antioch College in Ohio, with concentrations in visual arts and social psychology. He also attained a secondary school teaching license for visual arts from the state of Ohio. In 1991, he earned a MBA in international management from the Monterey Institute of International Studies, and he has over twenty years of management experience in Japan in several industries. 

This unique background in visual arts and management has formed a creative and results-oriented approach highly valued by his clients. Aron's stock photos have been downloaded over a hundred thousand times, and his images appear in publications and websites throughout the world. He has years of experience shooting events and photographing policymakers and industry leaders in Japan.
