Simo Ahmadi

I was born and raised in Morocco and have lived in Washington DC since 2000 . Growing up in a rich multicultural environment has fostered my passion for photography from an early age. As a young child, I had to be drawing, painting, playing music or building something. Anything that I could call my own and my creation.

After studying Business and Economics back home, I relocated to DC area where I went to school for Finance and worked in the hospitality business as a mixologist for 10 years before leaving to pursue my photography art . Even working in the hospitality business, I have never ceased to view myself as an artist. To position myself any other way would be absurd.

In defining my style, some of my work is consisting of colorful and energetic imagery, others bold and dramatic photographs, charged with emotions and narrative. My artistic vision consist of creating profound, energetic moments that are both vivid and inviting. My portraits of friends, lovers, still life and scenery are always taken with a large dose of fun.

I currently reside in Washington DC with my wife, Kate and our lovely daughter Olivia. When my energy isn't being applied to work, I can be found beating it out of my system through spending quality time with my family and friends. I am always humbled when clients choose me to capture a part of their life, and I am grateful for every opportunity to do so. My pursuit of new experiences pushes me to continually evolve my vision, while reminding me of the importance of carrying my camera with humor, compassion and curiosity.

If that’s all you ever know about me, it’s enough to say you know me very, very well.

If you would like to get in front of my camera and experience my passion for Art and photography, shoot me an email at or contact me at 202-321 7523. I'd be happy to hear from you.
