Hi, I'm Aliya!
I am a Chicago based photographer specializing in food, product, and lifestyle photography. I work with commercial food and beverage brands, editorials, and restaurants.
Growing up in Chicago and living in Brooklyn for 7 years, food and the urban landscape have always been a source of creative inspiration and personal joy.
My love for cooking and education in architecture are what push me to play with composition and texture in my images and my fascination with human connection helps me to explore memory, culture, and intimacy through the photographic process.
At every shoot, my number one goal is to illustrate a story.
I am currently based in the midwest and open to travel opportunities worldwide.
