My name is Jason and I'm a graphic designer/photographer from Joensuu, Finland. I was born in Cape Town, South Africa where I studied for 2 years and received my diploma as a graphic designer. Around 7 years ago, I moved to Finland to learn more about my Finnish roots, to explore and to develop my career. Photography started as a hobby and now has turned into a lifelong passion of mine.
Over the last 15 years or so, I have worked with many companies, organisations and individuals, creating promotional material for events, designing logos, creating vector art, producing music, doing photographic work and editing video.
I have experience with a variety of design, photo, video and audio software, and am constantly looking to develop and expand my skills as a creative person.
I am currently available for freelance, part-time or full-time job opportunities. Collaborations and other creative project work are also welcome.
Thank you for your visiting my website and I hope you enjoy my work!
February marked the beginning of my journey into portrait photography. I spent a lot of my free time watching videos about lighting and shadows, trying to understand what I would need in order to start practicing. At the end of the month I bought myself a couple of softboxes and a strobe light. I figured […]
The start of this year has been quite interesting for my photography. I’ve attempted some more heavily-edited fine art kind of stuff, as well as some more food and product photography.

I’ve been living here in Joensuu for just over 2 years now, and there’s one place that I just keep coming back to. ”Voiluoto”, is the name of this tiny island just off the shore of Kukkosensaari/Kalmoniemi. It is an easy walk from the centre of town to this place (maybe 20 minutes or so), […]
2018 was an incredible year for photography. I learnt a lot and am forever grateful that I managed to spend so much time with nature. With each sunset, sunrise and starry night burnt brightly into memory, I will move forward with a goal to experience them all over again in 2019. Below are photos from […]
For me, December wasn’t a good month for landscape photography due to the almost constant overcast weather, but I did manage to practice my product photography and get out into the snow a few times regardless. This year was however incredible, and I’m sure I’ll make a separate post to cover that. I’m also hoping […]
November was okay for me in terms of photography. The weather was mostly grey, and I wasn’t able to get out as much as usual. It was however interesting to see the change in the landscapes as the temperature began to drop, slowly freezing the lake water and producing some interesting shapes of ice. Above: […]
