About MeMy name is Jason M. Hogle. I'm a published nature photographer several times over (see credits). But now I want to try my hand at people photography.
I lean heavily toward male imagery because I've done quite a bit of it for friends and family, though I'm more than willing to delve into subjects of any type whilst I get my feet wet in this industry.
What I capture is what I capture and I can't pin myself down to specific genres. If you're smiling or if you're naked or if you're just standing there looking awesome, I'm willing to digitally memorialize the moment as long as the image tells a story or raises questions or incites emotions--preferably all three.
I have plenty of ideas about what I want to photograph and how I want to photograph it. But in my opinion, the most successful shoot is a collaboration between subject and photographer, so don't be afraid to have your own ideas about the kinds of photos you want taken.
My style tends to be natural--natural light, out in the world instead of in a studio, you looking like you were caught in the moment rather than like you were posed (even if you were posed), although I have plenty of editorial, artistic, and other kinds of ideas.
I'm quite willing to do TF*. I'm trying my hand at this, so I'd be a fool to say otherwise. Thus, if you're looking to expand your portfolio without cost or if you're looking to test, feel free to contact me. I'll do my best to accommodate you--for your benefit as well as for mine.
I'm a WYSIWYG photographer (WYSIWYG = What You See Is What You Get). I don't "Photoshop" images no matter what. The most I do is color correction and white balance, brightness and contrast, sharpness, cropping, B&W conversion, and digital noise reduction. Basically, if I can't get the picture I want from the camera, then the picture doesn't exist under the given circumstances. (To me, anything that's altered beyond the basics ceases to be a picture and instead becomes a digital painting, something altogether different.) Besides, when I start tinkering too much with an image after it comes out of the camera, I often end up with a mess. You don't want to see that.
I'm professional yet relaxed and casual. I expect the same from you.
