First Light 2016

2016_First_Light_FinalI welcomed in the new year in El Paso, Texas this year.  From this location you can see not only Texas, but New Mexico and Juarez, Mexico.

My thoughts traveled to the countries that I have visited and the “such a small world” feeling that consistently pervades interactions and events. At the same time, we have politicians who wish to build walls to keep out some of our neighbors.  Looking out from this scenic overlook, it is hard to locate the exact lines which mark the borders and “ours” from “theirs.”  The desert on one side looks the same as the desert on the other…as do the plants, insects, and birds.  While there might be differences among the people on Earth, approach the new year with the knowledge that we are all in this together.

For the past 9 years, I’ve shot the sunrise on Jan. 1 as a way to welcome the new year.


2015 First Light

Every January 1st, I make an image with the first light of the new year.  This is year number 8.

This is the first shot from outside of Rhode Island and in the waters of Mexico, by far the warmest New Years yet.

What a great way to start the year!

Best Wishes to everyone in 2015.  Jason


One Run I Won

Here is the first set of images from a series titled “One Run I Won.”

Every run is exciting but it is still a challenge.  Long runs always involve pain and pushing past the point of comfort.  I’ve never heard anyone describe training for a marathon as a pleasurable experience.  But, every year thousands of athletes train and compete in these races.  With that in mind, we came up with the idea of “One Run I Won.”  Every run, every step is a victory.  Every run you complete, whether a race, or a training run by yourself, is a run you have won.

This is a fun collaboration I’ve been working on with some friends.  We produced a short video and still images simultaneously as is common on commercial shoots these days.  Please take a look at the still images and the video contained in these two separate blog posts and stay tuned for the next edition.
