Jasen, photographer, Never Seek Approval

Jasen is a master of poetry and an even better photographer! Everybody has to go check out his book on Amazon "The Underground Man".  

Q: Tell us the story about when your passion for photography first started?

A: When I was 19-years-old, I founded a small press called J-Rock Publishing, which focused on publishing books for young adult readers to get them interested in literature.  During this creative process, images and photography became instrumental in putting together a visual appealing product.  Even though there is editing involved with photography, I like the immediacy of being able to share my photography much sooner with my audience as a book can take well over a year by the time it is written, edited, and published. 


Q:What is the story behind your favorite picture? 

A: Well, I don’t think I have a favorite picture, but my favorite place to take pictures in Boston is at the Esplanade. There is such a variety of different types of photos that you can capture there from landscape, to street photography, and nature. This particular photo of a gondola ride at sunset is my favorite type of photo to capture as it tells the story of a peaceful evening in Boston and what people do after a hot summer day to cool off in the city.

 Q: How was collabing with the Never Seek Approval Team?

A: I enjoy working with and being around anyone who inspires me, anyone who has a vision and lives each and every day working toward that vision. Being a vegan and being someone who is constantly aware of where everything I purchase comes from, it seemed natural for me to collaborate with Never Seek Approval. I respect that they are a business, but they are a business with a conscious who cares not only about the product they are selling, but about the creation of the product and how it impacts the planet and people over time.  I had so much fun shooting with Never Seek Approval and can’t wait to get creative with them again!
