Jason Collin, professional photographer and drone pilot with international experience
My first memory of photography is being fascinated by the flash cubes you used to have to attach to cameras back in the 70s and 80s. I used to keep the ones my grandfather discarded.
I always wanted to be a photographer, but I came to realize it was film that was holding me back. I was too impatient for it. Even the hour long printing process of the 90s was a long wait for me.
Then in 2001 I bought my first digital camera, an Olympus 2040Z. It was a 2-megapixel beauty that allowed me to make great photographs. That camera traveled with me to many countries, from the country it was purchased in, South Korea, to Japan, to Thailand, Cambodia, Hong Kong, Vietnam and New Zealand before finally ending up back in Japan. Digital remedied my patience problem and eased the ability to make photographs.
Once I got my first DSLR, a Nikon D80, I was taken in by the technical side of photography and realized it could be an in-depth fine art passion and creative outlet full-time for me.Thus, after nearly a decade abroad in Asia, I have returned to Florida with more camera and photography enthusiasm than I could have ever imagined. Just as I could never imagine I would spend a decade abroad.
The why part of photography for me is all about the moment. Perfection only lasts for a single instant, it is against logic for it to last any longer. However, that perfect instant can live long in one’s memory. Photography is a means to make this perfect instant tangible, and a bit more permanent.
Currently I live in Albuquerque, New Mexico with my beloved adopted border-collie-lab puppy, Kiki.
