Saroyan Humphrey is a portrait, editorial and fine art photographer based in San Francisco. He first started making photos at age 8 while attending a darkroom photography class during summer school near Providence, RI, where he lived with his poet father and librarian mother (he was named after author William Saroyan). Soon after leaving college, Saroyan moved to the West Coast and began his professional career as an art director/graphic designer. While continuing his award-winning design work, Saroyan uses both digital and analog cameras and has worked with clothing companies, record labels, magazines, and design agencies.
Saroyan’s first book, Guide to Northern & Central California Raceways, published in March 2015, is the only title of its kind, detailing the thrill of local motorsports from both sides of the fence.
