Jed is a Portland based photographer who specializes in Black and White photography. He has been consistently working under amber lights in a dark room for the last 3 years, and found his passion for photography within. Though his heart lies with monochrome, he is well rounded in many other aspects of photography. He has worked with local streetwear brands either just gaining knowledge, or creating the perfect product shot for online sales. His creativity really shines through his portraits, striving to create the perfect mood for each individual model.
I strive to show the side of individuals most people don't see in a normal 'photoshoot' setting. Humans are the most beautiful thing on earth, but so little do commercial photographers show the true parts the beauty comes from. With my personal photography pursuits, I aim to show individuals beauty in candid, beautiful moments, that truly tell a story. I like to find where a client really stands out, and put them in an environment that can accentuate the beauty within them that some photographers may not choose to focus on.
I enjoy portraits, and not just portraits, but creative ones. I like to converse with my clients about what they like to wear, what kind of music they like, and get a vibe of what environment they could really mesh with. I also enjoy portraits in a low-key studio setting; setting up our own environment to really capture a mood or emotion if necessary. Though I'm partial to black and white, I also enjoy utilizing color when it feels right.
My side profession is being an all-star pizza cook. I've been tossing pizza since I was a teenager, and have loved it ever since.
