Introduction: I'm a Visual Story Teller with a camera, and I create art pieces, not just photographs. I get to be with people and hear their stories whether it's through a product that makes them proud or their story of how a couple met. However the most fulfilling thing is to capture that one of a kind powerful moment!

Shelly worked with us to visually tell the story of learning for students at Anastasis Academy. This was a 2 day job in Colorado. What impresses me the most about Shelly is the way he has of putting everyone at ease. Shelly worked with young students to capture their learning. He immediately built rapport with the students, put them at ease, and had them sharing with him in a way that allowed him to capture the story. Shelly is truly gifted in his ability to capture story with the lens. These aren't just photographs of student work, each picture tells a story about who the child is and what they are most proud of. Shelly was able to accurately capture the personality of each child. This wasn't the first time that we've worked with Shelly, he has also engaged students and teachers in the art of storytelling through images. Shelly is a connector. His passion and gift is evident in everything he does whether it is hosting a gallery showing of his artwork or behind the camera capturing life.

I started taking lessons from Shelly Au with the goal to increase my image quality and to open my own photography business in Denver, CO. I am so glad I did. Even after my first lesson with Shelly, my images looked dramatically sharper and more professional. As a graduate of the prestigious School of Visual Arts in New York, Shelly really knows everything about photography and professional editing! From teaching the basics of composition to learning the art of running a professional business, Shelly has been a mentor that truly prepared me to take my business to the next level. I guarantee, whether you are a beginner or a professional, studying under Shelly will improve your image quality, editing skills, business savvy and confidence behind your glass.

I've contacted Shelly for portrait shoots, for specific events that our church wanted to document, and we've displayed his photography for a couple of short-term installations in our facility. He is professional, highly skilled, and a joy to work with!

Shelly's photography is gorgeous. Our family has enjoyed his workmanship a few times now and have been glad each time.

We have worked with Shelly on multiple occasions from exhibitions of his work to the photographic capturing of the essence of our coworking community & space. Shelly's eye is spectacular! He reveals the beauty present in daily life that we often miss. He is precise & creative in his practice and generous & caring in his character.
