TIA International Photography BBB Business Review


TIA International Photography’s objective is to present your city, town, region, or locale in the most mesmerizing, fascinating, and atypical way possible to leave you and your audience in inspired and indelible awe. TIA is skilled at showcasing your city in a stunning new light that will thoroughly rekindle your love and appreciation for it for years to come.


TIA’s primary focus is to present glorious images of the world’s magnificent cities. Given that a portraiture is the portrait of a person, TIA believes a cityscape is the portrait of a city. Cities are very much like people, each with its own DNA and personality. Cityscapes and urban landscapes reveal a city’s personality to its own residents, visitors, and the world. When someone opines, “Cities are all the same. You’ve seen one. You’ve seen them all,” TIA’s creed is to forever disprove this notion.


Your mission to present your city, town, or locale in the most captivating and intriguing light is of the utmost importance to TIA. In addition to learning about your goals, TIA invests the required resources to research as many details about your city before traveling there to photographically reveal the several special and overlooked aspects that make your city so unique, atypical, and worthy of endless admiration, envy, and wonder.


TIA specializes in cityscapes, urban landscapes, and night-time photography. We do our best to attain those unique and alternative perspectives that will stimulate your imagination for adventure, be it locally, nationally, or internationally.

Additionally, TIA provides professional photography for your important events, such as conferences, corporate meetings, public forums, holiday parties, private parties, and celebrations at affordable rates.


Don’t delay. Let TIA International Photography set the appropriate scene, mood, and atmosphere for all of your projects. Trying to revitalize your city’s appearance or reputation for a specific audience? Look no further than TIA.

Let TIA save you both time and money by delivering your needs. Our service is underscored by efficiency, courtesy, respect, and diligence.



The Man, The Cameras & The Revelation

In the decadent decade of the 1980s, a bright and intelligent boy by the name of Tosin (“Toe-sin”) was presented with an amazing gift – a Minolta Maxxum 5000 single lens reflex camera. He gave the camera a nickname, “Minny.” For the next 20 years, Tosin and Minny would be inseparable.  They would travel to destinations in North America, Europe, and Africa, capturing the magnificent cities and landscapes during each adventure. From the soaring skyscrapers of New York City and the enchanting fjords of Norway to the sun-drenched beaches of Puerto Rico, Tosin and Minny documented the beauty and intrigue of their surroundings. Minny had performed so well that it wasn’t until 2007 when Tosin had first considered a serious upgrade for the times.  There was nothing wrong with Minny, but when the cost of developing film became equivalent to transcontinental round-trip airfare between Seattle and Washington, D.C., the opportunity to become more sophisticated with contemporary photography clearly presented itself.

That’s where “Alphonso,” Tosin’s first digital single lens reflex camera, entered the picture. He is an Alpha 100, the pioneer and young grandfather of the Sony Alpha series of digital photography.  In March 2010,  “Alphie”, an Alpha 850, joined the team and retired in August 2013.  As of September 2013, the latest Sony full-frame camera, the A99 (“Ananda”), has been the primary camera of choice for almost all professional projects, events, and travels.

After several years of endless encouragement from family and friends, Tosin gradually consolidated his confidence, attained his business licenses, and decided to finally share his photography with you and the rest of the world.

Alas, welcome to my world of urban vistas and natural wonders.

Enjoy your excursion.

Tosin I. Arasi
