Like father like son. Jason Pierce was raised in a home where his dad’s amazing photos painted the walls. Watching his dad and appreciating photography from an early age, the artistry stuck. He started taking journalism classes through high school and college and began to learn photographic techniques. However, he didn’t find his personal style until his daughter was born. Jason consistently photographed her trying to capture her every expression. The outcome was more than he had hoped for. He had found his style, creating images that would elicit a reaction. As his family grew, and his two sons were born, so did his passion for photography and it soon became his career.
As time passed he wanted to step out of his normal photography style and try something new. He began experimenting with exposure and exploring light and a passion for infrared photography was born. This quickly became a favorite style because it pushed him to blend art and science. It is exceptionally technical and presents many challenges that force him to think outside the box on what he needs to achieve to capture a scene or convey a mood. As he started exploring and solving technical problems with his photos the solutions led to some very creative and dramatic images. Using this technique, he has captured many Oklahoma City cityscapes, architectural buildings and travel landscapes.
Jason graduated with a Journalism degree from the University of Central Oklahoma, he lives in Oklahoma City with his wife and children. He owns Grand Life Originals Photography with his father, Ron.
