ABOUT the PHOTOGRAPHER
Jason Riley Hoss
I was born in the chilly state of Michigan and raised in the southern heat of Texas, and currently find myself loving “all things photography” in the Hudson Valley area of New York State.
I've had a passion for art my entire life and realized that photography was an amazing extension of that while I was in the military! Being stationed in Germany for over 2 years, I found myself truly enjoying taking photos of some of the world’s most beautiful scenery and architecture. After leaving the Army, I continued photography as a hobby, not realizing this was going to turn into the greatest adventure of my life. It was around 2007 that photography started to become a passion and in 2009, a professional photographer evolved. I soon recognized that it was impossible to accurately represent our stories without understanding the worlds of both natural and artificial light, so I dove deep into the study of it. I can honestly say that by understanding the principles of the two primary domains of lighting techniques, it opened up an amazing world to me that has truly allowed my creative ambitions to never be limited to the adherence of one style. By 2014, I realized I was having so much fun and a photographer is who I am! I made a decision, promised myself to never look back, and I chose to pursue photography as a career by starting my own business in 2015. Photography is, without a doubt and with all my heart, the one thing I truly love doing.
This amazing journey has evolved my photographic philosophy into the notion and firm belief that not only are my subjects deserving of much more than a standard, linear process, but that each and every image “can” be as original as the next. For me, it's not as simple as just taking a picture or developing a certain style; it’s about creating beautiful works of art within all areas of our heart’s desire. One thing holds especially critical within my portraiture . . . I strive for the opportunity to show you that the world around us is made even more beautiful, with you in it!

Then, he did his own homework to further elaborate on the sample photos I showed him. He is highly professional. He knew how to bring out my best features. My headshots were phenomenal!! Use him!"
