    I have been a professional photographer for the past 20 years and have covered every possible subject in every setting, but photographing outdoor subjects is what I thrive on. The majority of what I photograph now is outdoor product / lifestyle / landscape-related and I am an Oregon-licensed guide who operates Outdoor Viewfinder.  My outdoor experience began at 12 years old and since then, I have worked as a field biologist and have been an avid hiker, which includes a hike of the Pacific Crest Trail in 2005. The use of a camera has enabled me to learn more about our surroundings and to develop a personal creative vision that depicts what I see in a person, place, object, or a particular moment.  The style of my photography is depicted by the balance of colors, dramatic lighting, and the element of gesture in tandem with a defined sense of composition.  The inspiration to work as a photographer is a love for the medium, sharing knowledge and images with others, and the anticipation of making the next photograph.  My work has been published by a wide-range of clients and I was hired to test the Leica S2 camera and serve as a spokesman for them in 2010.  Educational experience includes earning a B.F.A. degree in photography from Old Dominion University and studying photography with Glen McClure, Richard Newman, Sam Abell, and Jay Maisel.  To view my photography, please visit http://www.jasonsvision.com/.
