There are rankings in photography that I had no idea even existed. For example, the #1 Fearless Photographer in North America, and Top 3 in the World, for 2021 is Jason Vinson. He's also ranked as one of the Top 100 Fearless Photographers of all time. I am intrigued, and that alone makes me want to meet him.
Jason is a multi-award winning wedding and documentary photographer, based out of Northwest Arkansas, and the awards list is impressive, with awards from Junebug Weddings, World Best Wedding Photos, ISPWP, Masters of Wedding Photography, Documentary Family Awards, and more.
Recognitions like that bring with them an audience that wants to learn, and Jason is a skilled speaker, instructor, writer, and content creator for establishments such as WPPI, Portrait Master, Rangefinder, PPA, Fstoppers, to name a few.
Jason is also a Stella Pro Ambassador, for the Stella Pro line of lighting from Light & Motion. I saw these lights for the first time at this year's WPPI, and again at NAB, and I am seriously impressed. I might need to get some of these.
With all of that, I think the part on his "About" page that struck me is this list:
lover of extreme sports
self proclaimed beer snob
mexican food junky
Three of the five mean we will clearly be friends.
As an ambassador for brands such as Stella Pro Lights, Flashpoint, Magmod, Aftershoot, DreambooksPro, Holdfast, DVLOP, and more, Jason is taking the photography community to new heights, and I'm excited to have him on the show.
Join multi-award winning wedding and documentary photographer, and Stella Pro Ambassador, Jason Vinson and me as we explore the creative use of light in his wedding and portrait images, on this Behind the Shot.
