From an early age I felt the compelling power of story telling through pictures. The family shelves didn't have encyclopedias, rather in their place sat several years' worth of National Geographic magazine. I recall poring over the pictures of wondrous lands, exotic people, creatures and cultures that were so alien from my Brooklyn upbringing. These volumes were my treasures, and no doubt they were directly responsible for inciting wanderlust and a need to pursue a life of image-making.
Today, I still find myself obsessed over pictures that, thanks to our connected world, come at rapid-fire pace in the form of photo sharing websites, social media and the little photo enabled device in nearly everyone's back pocket.
Settling in Northern California has also proven to be another great sensory influence. With so much variety – from the gastronomic and wine epicenter of the United States to the rugged coastline, unique redwood landscape and the cultural diversity of the city by the bay, San Francisco – there certainly are no shortage of subjects to muse over.
Jason Tinacci is a commercial photographer based in Northern California, and is available for local and world-wide travel projects. When not in the studio, Jason can be found photographing on-location. When he's not in the studio or on-location, he probably still has a camera of some sort either around his neck, in his pocket or on his flying photo machine.
Tinacci is also the founder and owner of TrellisCreative, a boutique stock photography agency that focuses on wine, food and luxury lifestyle themed stock photography. Visit TrellisCreative.com to view more photography by Jason Tinacci and other talented photographers.
