Photography in Los Angeles

IMG_9280-2I haven’t been everywhere or seen everything, but it’s on my list…

My name is Jason Shaw (@ufjason99) and I am a professional photographer based in Los Angeles but I suffer from what has become known as Wanderlust (a great desire to travel and explore)!  I first got into photography while documenting my adventures with traveling and aviation.

All of this started with an iPhone but I soon realized that I wanted more from my photographs and picked up a Canon DSLR.  The photography bug continued to grow inside of me and so I expanded my photography into more and more of my life.

I am based in Los Angeles and during the day I work as an engineer for an aerospace company.  One of my primary hobbies is flying and I am a both a private pilot (airplanes) and part 107 licensed sUAS operator (drone pilot).  In addition to flying for adventure, I am also an avid traveler.  My ultimate goal is to visit all of the countries of the world.  I keep a current list of places that I have visited here on my website.  One of my main goals with my photography is to inspire others to travel and see the amazing places around the globe.  I try to accomplish this by giving the viewer a small glimpse into what it was like being there through my photographs.

My list of other hobbies is quite long but some of them include off-roading (in my Jeep Wrangler), surfing, SCUBA, hiking/canyoneering, beach volleyball and just about anything else that leads me to my next adventure.

I get a lot of requests and do license my photos and stock video footage as well as work new commissioned work.  I do commercial work, including aerial photography, head shots, portraits, events and much more.  Send me an email and let me know what you had in mind.

My work has been featured by the US Department of the Interior, USA Today and showcased on ABC7 in Los Angeles to name a few.  You can also read more about me in my interview with VoyageLA.

Not all that wander are lost…
