While attending school in Santa Barbara, California, Jason assisted in marine mammal research. He had responsibilities photographing whale flukes, dental cross sections and other identifying details. It was at this early stage that Jason's passion for photography developed. As his work evolved, he became more interested in compiling film rather than compiling data. He soon refocused his efforts to become a photographer, and began taking beauty shots used to support advocacy and preservation efforts for marine animals. He has since dedicated his time to create compelling and thought provoking images of the natural world. As an avid underwater photographer, he has extensively traveled the world to exotic destinations including Indonesia, Mexico, the Caribbean, the Bahamas, and countless California coastal destinations in order to hone his craft.

Jason's presentation will feature spectacular photos from his portfolio and he'll offer a wide range of valuable tips, tricks and other nuts-and-bolts techniques, including upgrading equipment technologies, anticipating the actions of wildlife in order to capture the perfect shot, and other shooting techniques from which all underwater photographers will benefit.
