My name is Jason and I'm a graphic designer/photographer residing in Joensuu, Finland. I was born in Cape Town, South Africa where I studied and received my diploma as a graphic designer. I worked for many years in the music industry, producing music and using my graphic design skills to help promote companies, musicians and various organisations.
Around 7 years ago, I moved to Finland to learn more about my Finnish roots, to work and to develop my career as a graphic designer. However, it was also in Finland that I grew to become really passionate about photography. After teaching myself about photography, it's now become a major part of my professional and personal life. My photos have been published/featured on websites such as National Geographic, BBC News, Fstoppers (Instagram), Yle Sää and Sanomalehti Karjalainen.
Thank you for visiting my website and I hope that you enjoy my work! Feel free to check out my available services through the Services page.

This last August was alright for me in terms of my photography. The inspiration is coming back, and I think it has a lot to do with the change of weather and some new, fresh ideas coming to mind. I’ve found that the summer is great for spending time outdoors and for planning future compositions. […]
This summer has been a bit slow for me in terms of photography. Although the season has many unique and interesting weather conditions, I found myself staying up late for the midnight sunsets only a handful of times. July was definitely not my best month for photos, but it was still a blast to be […]
Summer is here and so are the amazing colours that come with it. The days feel long due to the sun only setting around 11pm, so staying awake until late is crucial if one enjoys the golden hour style of photography. I managed to get a few nice landscapes and did a couple of fun […]
The weather is getting warmer and the nights shorter here in Finland. This month was quite rewarding, I captured my first good lighting photo and continued to develop my skills in my home studio.
