About Jason

My 20 year career has spanned several incarnations: photography business owner, producer, photographer, artist, performer, teacher, creative, IT specialist and Mac Genius. Needless to say, I have much to offer in regards to all things visually and technologically creative. On the larger scale, I have great passion for production logistics - I love teaching you how to get from "A to Z" in a flash! On a smaller scale, I've been a functional Photoshop user and professional photographer or over 10 years as result of a owning and running a lucrative New York city based photography business.

In addition my experience as a business owner, I have also been an educational representative for various organizations, including 100 Cameras, JP Teaches Photo, as well as several one-on-one private clients. I have mentored several New York City up-and-coming photographers and creatives, ranging in age from early teens to mature.

My teaching style is one of customized experience and creative problem solving and understanding. I believe the most important aspect of education is a strong and simple connection to concepts and ideas, unlocking limitless artistic possibilities. I pride myself on being able to cater my teaching style to many types of people, and strongly believe in hands-on learning backed up by a strong technical foundation. This is topped off with assignments that will allow the student to discover their uniquely resonate interpretation of photography theory and practicum. This will ultimately empower them with true confidence in their talents as a creative and technician.

I am looking for students who are interested in perfecting short term projects (quick touchups on Photoshop, basics of how to take better pictures with a digital camera, etc.), as well as those who are interested in learning the ins and outs of larger, multi-layered assignments. I welcome all challenges, big and small, and approach all with a positive, patient spirit.

I am highly knowledgeable in Adobe Create Suite (Photoshop, Lightroom), Aperture, Phase One, Apple Photos. I am an ex-Mac Genius (Desktop and Laptop), and am very familiar with all Google and Apple Products, Instagram and Facebook.

My goal is to empower my student with the confidence and knowledge to create unique, refined projects and pieces. Whether it's a quick touch up on a profile picture, understanding the basic ins and outs of a digital or film camera, or a more complex multi-platform project, I would be overjoyed to offer my 10+ years of expertise as a photographer, teacher, producer, digital artist and creative.

Photography

I have owned and run a New York City based professional photography company for over 10 years. I shoot commercial photography, headshots, event photography, weddings and studio work regularly; I am extremely proficient in all areas of DSLR photography and posses a vast understanding of studio and event lighting, exposure and post production. I have mentored over a dozen interns and up and coming photographers who are all working as successful photographers in NYC and Miami. My style is all about making what could be very intimidating information more so digestible and understandable for all.
