Photographer Jason Mahshie, since childhood, has maintained a lifelong passion for photography. Jason was born and raised in rural upstate New York, the youngest of 7 children, and one of 2 sets of twins (but not the evil one...) Jason is also an accomplished figure skater, a pastime he started at 10 and continues to enjoy (30 plus years later) when not behind the camera. He also enjoys trying the patience of art directors, makeup artists and stylists, as many may agree.

He has lived and worked in Europe and the US, with a concentration on editorial work in Paris and Milan. He has photographed everyone from top fashion models to Olympic athletes and celebrities. His work has appeared in GQ, Men's Health, Esquire, Elle, NY Times Magazine, DNR, Sports Illustrated, Ocean Drive, Marie Claire, and Votre Beaute, among others. His advertising clients include Perry Ellis, Nike, Original Penguin, Jantzen, Avon, Hickey-Freeman, Air Canada, Coty Cosmetics, Oldsmobile, Lord & Taylor, Woolrich, as well as numerous department stores. In a less commercial vein, Jason continues to shoot his own personal projects. He self-published a book of collected works in 1999.

Jason received his BFA in Photography from NYU, Tisch School of the Arts and is the recipient of a Lightwork Grant. He has guest lectured at many fine universities, such at Rochester Institute Of Technology’s advertising department.
