Raised in rural Wayne and Poland, Maine, Jason loved spending time in nature, particularly the woods and trails near his home. He began learning photography in high school and fell in love with the dark room, but further exploration of that medium was put on hold when he moved to Boston, Massachusetts. Studying at UMass/Boston and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, his focus shifted to film and video, and then again to graphic design. It was during this time that he landed a design job at the marketing agency Digitas, where he began a multi-decade career designing and art directing work for the likes of General Motors and Bank of America.
Jason has since rekindled his passion for photography, and brings a designer’s eye for composition, light and texture to all his photos. He also returned to Maine, and the surroundings of his home in Yarmouth provide rich fodder for his work. Jason is fascinated by the repetition of natural forms becoming patterns, and patterns becoming textures. By repeating these patterns in unique, unexpected ways, his work pays homage to the infinite ways in which nature chooses to arrange itself.
