Jason’s Background

My name is Jason D. Page and I discovered light painting in late 2004. I was out on a full moon night shooting long exposure seascapes when I accidentally bumped my camera. When I saw the light streak going across the sky that the moon had left from that bump, it was my epiphany. From that moment on I was a light painter.

“My hope is that my work will provide the viewer a temporary escape by inspiring their faith, imagination, and creativity. Every one of my images has a story and I want my work to provoke the viewer’s imagination to create the story that goes with the image they are witnessing. I would like to say thank you to the light painting community and especially to light painting pioneers Dean Chamberlain and Vicki DaSilva for their continued support and inspiration.”
