In the summer of 1972 Jason rode a motorcycle from Connecticut to California, with stops in most of the Western States. The beauty he experienced on this trip ignited a lifelong passion for landscape photography, mountain climbing, and exploring wild and remote places. 

Jason has visited the American West countless times since that first trip. He loves hiking the mountains, canyons and coastline searching for the perfect ephemeral moment to take a photograph of the pristine landscape. He is also fascinated by abandoned structures and other artifacts which create a feeling of nostalgia and curiosity.

Jason’s photography skills are self-taught, starting with wet darkroom techniques forty years ago and continuing on with digital photography since 2002.

Now retired from a career as Chief Financial Officer for companies in New York, Philadelphia, and Nashville, Jason resides in Litchfield, Connecticut.
