Hello, I'm A.J. Ward.

I love capturing the world around me with my professional digital photography gear. From fast-moving athletes, to the joyous beauty of a wedding day, from the warmth of the evening sun to the dramatic shadows cast by street lamps at night, I strive to create dynamic digital images and powerful prints for every one of my clients.

Based just outside of St. Louis, Missouri, AJW Studio is the culmination of my lifelong dream to own a small business - a business built upon my creative aspirations and my love of technology. Delivering the highest quality images to my clients is what I aim to do every time I touch a camera.
