Aaron is, first and foremost, a creative. Following his professional training in musical theatre at the London School of Musical Theatre, Aaron performed in productions, light entertainment and events in venues all over Europe. Following his performance career, Aaron briefly entered the business side of things as a producer, working on two major productions at the Finborough Theatre; the World Premiere of <i>When Midnight Strikes</i>, a musical by Charles Miller and Kevin Hammonds and a revival of the William Saroyan classic <i>The Time of Your Life</i>. Realising that producing wasn’t quite what Aaron was destined for, he joined Red Hot Entertainment as an agent and worked alongside the team before leaving to create his own boutique agency called Davis-Prior Associates. Following the birth of his first child, Aaron took the tough and heartbreaking decision to close the agency. 

In recent years, Aaron has developed his passion for creativity and imagery into a photography business and now provides portraiture and event photography services including, for example, headshot shoots, weddings and, of course, theatre production shots. Aaron has also been teaching theatre to young people for a number of years, principally at The Arts Centre Telford, a highly regarded performance and education company in Shropshire.

Now Aaron lives in Denmark with his Danish wife and two children, is continuing to build his photography business both in the UK and Denmark and is working on a number of other projects, all (of course) creative.
