About The Owner

Meet Virak

Thank you for visiting my page!

My name is Virak which is pronounced "VEER - RACK (preferred)," "VER - RACK," "VUH - ROCK" or "VERICK (like Derick with a V)" or you can just call me, "V!" The name has Cambodian roots although I consider myself a proud American.

I have a passion for LEARNING, EXPERIMENTING and EXPLORING the different realms of Photography, Video and all things MEDIA-related! Virak Studio is not just my job, it's not just my dream job; it's my DREAM! I cordially invite you into my world and hope you read further to learn about how the dream of Virak Studio came to fruition.


My Story

I was born in Fairfax, Virginia, grew up in Arlington, VA and spent my college years (UC Davis although I never graduated) in Sacramento, California.

My original career path was in finance. I started in real estate and eventually worked as a Regional Financial Consultant for a large commercial bank. I spent a little over 5 years managing 13 branches across the Montgomery County, Maryland Region as part of a Workplace Banking Division.

While working at the bank, I had to familiarize myself with tax law, tax codes, business products and the American financial system. I found myself advising a variety of clients on business products that would fit their needs and couldn't help but think - "why am I not doing this for myself?"

In 2012, I left that commercial bank and took two years for myself to travel, explore and practice my hobbies (which at the time was photography and dance). I made a decision to "monetize my hobbies."


I'm always looking for new and exciting opportunities. Let's connect.
