JASON MALOUIN

Expression Collector - Communicator - Photographer

 
Hi. I'm Jason. I'm originally from America, but please don't hold it against me...
 

What do people say about working with me?

 
Get yourself in front of the lens with him. The experience is something else entirely. Best money you’re going to spend on your personal brand.
 
 
...redefining the art of the headshot... He sees you with fresh eyes and deep knowledge. Worth every cent.
 
 
...brilliant! You’ve really captured my strength and personality; and given me some incredible brand assets.
 
 
It couldn’t have been easier for my first time in front of a camera
 
 
You captured qualities which I value but are rarely exhibited in photographs... Your approach allowed me to see myself differently.
 
 
 
Jason wasn’t just doing his job yesterday, he was changing my life...

About 17 years ago I needed a course of incredibly toxic chemotherapy which destroyed a lot of the nerve health in my teeth. As a result I had black and broken teeth (and a constant reminder of being sick). I’ve had them fixed about 10 years ago, but I basically learned to not smile and be completely paranoid about it. Even though they look normal now, they still feel black to me. When I left yesterday, I just felt so happy... I saw a picture of me smiling and it didn’t look anything like that sick and broken creature.
 

If you think this is about photography… you’ve missed the point.

This is about Meaningful, Powerful Communication

 
 

Why do I communicate?

First of all, we have no choice in the matter. There is a never ending stream of vocalised, physicalised, imagined, and experienced communication going on both externally and internally… transmitting and receiving… all the time… However big or small; grand or mundane (changing society or changing ourselves).

What we communicate into the world is tangible.  

There is a projection of energy, intention, and effect from our communication that has a net result on our ecology - the set of relationships between any complex system and its environment. Therefore, because of my own fundamental belief that our thoughts, words, and actions profoundly dictate our experience of reality (and what we are able to create in the world), I believe I should be crystal clear about what affect I choose to have on the world around me.

This little equation fuels my creativity, informs my work, and determines my path.

 

Self expression + Self reflection = Transformation

 
 
 

Self Expression is one side of life’s coin. It’s one of the most joyful, playful, meaningful parts of our experience as a human being. It’s a moment by moment opportunity to define - and refine - who we are and what we stand for.

Self Reflection is the other side of that coin. The chance to pause, in a moment of quiet attention, and reflect on what affect our self expression has on ourselves and the people we hope to influence… It’s pure magic. We get to consider if our intentions are right… and if we are articulating those intentions properly. We receive feedback from the world. We get to feel the reaction.  We get to live the message we are transmitting.

And then we get to choose again! The whole beautiful process starts over… “In this moment, what is the most effective/ creative/ powerful/ meaningful/ intentional/ playful/ valuable way to express my self?”

It’s in this ‘flipping of the coin’ - Self Expression / Self Reflection - that we can make real Transformation in the world (and in ourselves). I get to see it more clearly and then I get to retransmit all that back to society.  At the end of the day, if society deems my creations to be valuable then I guess I’m winning.

So that's why I have engineered my portrait sessions the same way.  Every single session is about helping you transform the way you communicate with yourself as well as the world around you. I help you portray yourself (Self Expression)… We pause and consider, examine and critique (Self Reflection)… And that changes what we do next (Transformation)… Which leads immediately to the next round of Self Expression and the cycle continues.
