Although Ope currently shoots for global brands like Audi, Adidas, and American Express, the idea of being a photographer didn’t cross his mind until he was in college. Now, he routinely posts stunning images to his nearly 100,000 Instagram followers. Ope’s images are a study in contrast: extrovert vs. introvert, urban/architectural vs. personal/familial. He moves between his commercial and personal work with ease and fluidity, and strives to capture viewers' attention through his use of leading lines, grids, geometric patterns, and his experimentation with distances and vantages.
Parallel Lines is the visual journal of an artist, social influencer, and traveler. Ope’s unusual aesthetic sensibility reveals his vision of the world, viewed with eternal optimism and hope.
