Jason R. Johnston | Photographer, Filmmaker, Designer
Who I Am
I am an accomplished, award-winning director of photography on motion pictures, advertisements and music videos. I have practiced photography most of my life and have managed to create a stunning portfolio blessed by collaborations with many talented, amazing artists from all over the world. I'm on Model Mayhem to continue my collaborations with the network of artists here. I look forward to working with you!
What I Do
I direct, shoot, edit and produce movies, short films, music videos and commercials. I am also a graphic designer, music composer and amateur chef. I also make a smashing iced tea and look great in a fedora.
I Do This For A Living
Being a photographer is how I make a living, pay the rent, keep the lights on and have food on my table. I'm being compensated for my talent, experience, labor and the regular upkeep of my equipment. There's a certain minimum dollar amount that I'm willing to work for, but I do make exceptions "if the juice is worth the squeeze," so to speak. But, please respect that I am a professional and, even if I work for no money, I never work for free.
Rates, Payment & Everything Else
My rates are very good for the quality of craftsmanship you get. I don't do a lot of test shoots anymore unless I'm hiring for one of my own projects. I accept PayPal, most major credit and debit cards and green cashy money. I have talent and location release forms, electronic receipts and a long list of happy, smiling clients, models, families, businesses and agency reps.
Feel free to contact me for my very reasonable rates, booking information and/or USC 2257 compliance information where necessary.
