Javier Pierrend fell in love with a camera at the age of eight in Peru. Now 27 years old, his love for cameras has grown and developed passionately. He began working for a local video studio at 17 years of age. Since that time, he has worked for ABC/”Extreme Home Make Over”, AFL CIO, LCPS-TV and several production companies…all with unequaled creativity and an artist’s eye. With clients in Northern Virginia, DC and Maryland, he produces and directs commercials, corporate videos, educational television programs, public service announcements (PSAs), news clips, instructional videos and documentaries.
From his avid connection with video cameras, he discovered another passion for portrait, cultural and fashion photography. He has transferred his unusual international and artistic perspective to still photographs. He currently works with emerging artists, models and actors shooting headshots, commercial, portrait and beauty photography.
“Every day is a new adventure and a learning experience. I learn from it all…my gift is storytelling. That is how I use my cameras. Whether in a studio with a model, or listening to great testimonies from admirable people in every walk of life, I love learning of new cultures and traveling to different destinations. Every day brings something new to the table that opens my mind and gives me a new outlook on life.”
