Jason developed a remarkable interest in art, literature, music, media and specifically photography at a very early age. Upon graduating from high school, he immediately enrolled as a motion picture production student at Wright State University. After two years of foundational studies consisting of criticism, writing and photography classes Jason was invited to continue the program into his Junior and Senior years. The staggering cost of film production, however, prevented him from pursuing a conclusion to this course of study. Once settled back in his hometown of Lancaster, Jason found work as a camera salesperson, after only a year, was promoted to store manager, a position he held for a year before moving to Washington, DC to become an outside sales representative for the nation's oldest photography processing lab and large format graphic supplier. In 2003 Jason returned to Lancaster to finish his bachelor's degree at Millersville University, this time in Philosophy. While attending these last two years at college Jason worked part-time at another local camera shop. Upon completion of this degree in 2007, Jason incorporated and began working as a freelance photographer.
Jason began teaching one-on-photography to customers he met while selling cameras at the camera shop. Many customers, eager to learn how to use new technology yet unable to understand complicated instruction manuals. Jason's students found Jason's hands-on guidance comfortable and easy to understand. Jason knows and understands the usage of all the features of all makes and models from his years of experience not only selling cameras, but shooting and retouching professionally. In 2009 Jason began teaching groups at retirement communities. Students there have found Jason's instruction extremely helpful and has allowed them to continue to photograph the things they love in spite of new technology.
Jason is available to instruct photography at all levels from the most basic beginner to the most advanced retouching and other Photoshop techniques.
