About - Jason Harris Photography
I’ve worked hard all my life, but I’ve also been very lucky. Who knows – maybe the two come hand in hand. In my career I’ve worked professionally on animated feature films, adverts, broadcast television, i-dents and interstitials. I've worked on corporate, documentary and natural history films, too. And I’ve freelanced in stop-frame animation for studios such as Hot Animation and Aardman, don’t you know…
As a Lighting Cameraman and Motion Control Operator, I earned a BAFTA nomination in 2012, and won a BAFTA outright for Best Preschool Animation in 2013.
I’m currently helping a range of clients based in Bath and London, shooting editorial lifestyle, designer interiors, garden exteriors, action sports, documentary, studio advertising, fashion, still-life, portraiture, corporate, business and sports editorial – all for web and print.
I recently completed a black and white commission I’m really proud of, which features as a permanent exhibition of 46 original prints for 16 private apartments in Bath. I’m also in partnership with a local bookshop, creating a book called Black & White Bath that will be available later this year. I can’t wait to see it, even though I know what’s in it.
I can take a great shot of anything.
By nature, I’m an ambient light photographer, using graduated filters to perfect the desired image at the time of inception and capture. There aren’t many subjects I haven't had the pleasure of lighting to the very highest professional standards: everything from lighting and shooting miniatures for film and television, to entire room sets. In the studio, I’ve captured furniture, jewellery, electrical components, flowers, clothes, shoes, watches, puppets, paintings, and ceramics in their best light. I’ve even photographed swimming pool inflatables – not many people get paid to do that!
Using my extensive knowledge and experience, I provide a consistent creative vision. But I’m not precious – I'm as happy taking direction as I am taking the reins. Whatever gets the best results. What works for you, works for me.
