Window cleaner extraordinaire, and very amateur photographer..

I NEED photography as i don't seem to have any substantial amount of memory but I LOVE it because "Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still.” - Dorothea Lange

"Photography is not about the thing photographed. It is about how that thing LOOKS photographed."-Garry Winogrand

    "Jason describes himself as a 'very amateur photographer'
    But from his photos that i have seen, I would say he is a very competent, and talented snapper indeed.
    He has a great eye for a photo. Jason also embraces different styles, and techniques to good effect.

    Jason is always ready to give praise and encouragement to other people.
    This is a rare quality often lacking in todays world.
    I find him a very amiable, and friendly guy!

    All the best with your photography J :-)"
