Completely self-taught, Jason aims to capture our amazing world through his landscape photography and to present the beauty of our planet like you’ve never seen it before.
He seeks out awe-inspiring views and his passion has taken him around the world, from 20,000 mile road trips across North America to the exotic Islands of Asia and many exciting destinations in between. He has been waking up at the crack of dawn balancing precariously on cliffs’ edges, repelling down the worlds largest caves and trudging through miles of challenging landscape in his quest for the perfect shot.
Jason’s photographic passion began in 2003 when he was living in London as an award-winning Film Editor. Having grown up in the Yorkshire countryside, the tall buildings and bright lights were a stark contrast to the landscape he was used to and he set out to capture the amazing sunsets he would see daily from his bedroom window overlooking the city. He started out using an old Praktica 35mm camera borrowed from his father, but in his quest to print big and wide he quickly ventured into medium format film. Today Jason shoots with a large format 617 panoramic film camera, a format that matched what he knew and loved from the big screen and achieves his goal to capture the bigger picture in a single shot for billboard sized pictures that do not sacrifice on quality.
Fragments are his new collection of images that compliment the epic landscapes of his panoramic work. They focus on glimpses of beauty that let you imagination go wild. A collection that started in 2006 but has only just been realised fully today. Fragments are a modern look at our charming old world, shot will both analogue and digital techniques.
