San Francisco

Photography has always been a passion of mine.  I have loved taking pictures since I was a kid and had my first camera.  I started with film like almost all middle age to older photographers and have come full circle today as I continue to shoot both digital and medium format film.  Today I spend almost all of my free time away from home traveling the United States and Europe.  

I started as a wedding photographer (and sports photographer) but have transformed over time to dedicate my time to landscape photography.  I still occasionally do weddings for special clients, typically destination weddings, but 98% of my time today is spent traveling and photographing.  My main complaint is not having enough hours in the day to dedicate to editing and social media.  After my most recent Europe trip (36 days straight) I have over 2,000 pictures still hiding in my computer somewhere.  This trip is roughly outlined on my blog but with many more posts to come.  I have also spent several weeks exploring Iceland which is the newest hottest destination for photographers and those checking off their bucket list.  If you want more information on Iceland, contact me and I would be happy to share my experiences. 

Beyond my travels, I run a photography business in California - featuring my photography that is printed, framed, and displayed in galleries. My work has been internationally published and awarded and I pride myself on bringing landscape photography the way I see it to my clients. I am a 100% self taught photographer who travels the world seeking out the best photography locations and share my tips and travel reviews on my blog.

My photography is professional and has been published across the United States and internationally.  My landscape photography has been featured for several awards and continues to highlight different travels and locations. I focus my photography on my life and my travels, my story includes my memory loss and connecting life with photography.  I donate a large portion of proceeds to Parkinson's Disease research to give back and help make this a better world. 

ABOUT JARED -  Photographer, San Francisco / sacramento, California

All images copyright Jared Lawson. All rights reserved. 

My name is Jared Lawson and welcome to my photography page.  I am a professional photographer based in California in the San Francisco / Sacramento area.  My life has been dedicated to landscape photography for over 10 years – spending my time traveling and seeking out the best in photography.  I pride myself in being 100% self taught – and that I am always striving to get off the trail, off the road to capture my perfect landscape photo.  My goal is to always take something and capture it the way I see it, sometimes unrefined and simple, sometimes colorful and chaotic, but always with my style and personality. My work is not something you will find mainstreamed and mass produced.  While my passion is with travel photography, I spend the bulk of my time working with wedding photography, event photography and custom portraits of athletes and on-assignment work.  Whether you are a bride looking for a photographer in San Francisco, or a company needing to document your next event or build that website - my work always aims to please the client.  I pride myself on hard work as a small business owner - providing trustworthy work you can trust.  

My work has been internationally published and has brought numerous photography awards over the years.  I focus my life on photography not only to create stunning photographs – but to also capture the world through my vision.  My work is online in my portfolio and also available through gallery shows throughout California.  My work can be found throughout numerous homes – signed and limited.

Each of my prints is a limited edition – and is created for a purpose.  My prints today are only available framed and in large sizes.  I do not print smaller than 16×20 for one reason – my photography is meant to be enjoyed in large format and light up your home.  It is not meant to be hung in in a tight confined space.  The process I use for my framing is the highest possible quality, 100% museum archival grade.  An investment in my work is that: an investment.  All materials used are museum grade, each print is individually crafted. 

I have traveled the world to bring photography home for others to enjoy.  I continue to donate a large percentage of all proceeds to Parkinson's Disease Research to help contribute to an excellent cause that is dear to my heart.
