Jason Michael Sinn is an American-born portrait, music, ballet, commercial and editorial photographer based in Sacramento, California. After serving as a camera-wielding Field Observer in the U.S. Coast Guard - tasked with capturing the rehabilitation of the Gulf of Mexico during the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill - Jason returned home with a new found love and appreciation for photography. What originally began as a curious hobby quickly blossomed into an artistic obsession, with genres like cinematography, painting, acting, and dance heavily influencing his creative vision and style.
Since the debut of his craft, Jason has had the opportunity to photograph many distinguished artists, including: So You Think You Can Dance winner and celebrity 'LIl Kida, musician Nicholas David (NBC's The Voice), singer Lindsey Pavao (NBC's The Voice), and world touring fingerstyle guitarists Antione Dufour and Adrian Bellue. He has also worked on assignment and brought to life many exciting projects for national radio stations K-Love and Air 1, and international record label, Fretmonkey Records. His work has been shown in print, both in the national publication of Photographer's Forum to his home state's publication of Comstock's Magazine. Jason has also been interviewed and featured by the prestigious lighting company Profoto, who printed his photo "Fractured" for their Fall 2016 EDU national poster campaign.
When Jason is not on assignment he volunteers much of his personal time to local artistic organizations, including The Sacramento Ballet and The Capitol Dance Project; continuing his life-long mission to preserve and share art within his community.
Many people express that it is Jason's skillful conversion of light and shadow into a language that separates him from the crowd, but ultimately it is his patience, artistic intuition, and connection with who he photographs that makes his work - commercial, personal and editorial alike - flourish.
"Jason is the definition of a professional. In my decade plus in the music industry i've been in front of hundreds if not thousands of photographers and out of all of them one photographer stands out as the best photographer I've ever worked with, and that is Jason"
"Working with Jason has truly been a catalyst of my inspiration. His expertise and virtuosity as a photographer have been an integral part of embalming the very soul of my art. He goes above and beyond my expectations with every project, and I wouldn't be the artist I am today without him."
"Jason's fine art portraiture imbues subjects with an aura of mysticism and drama. His surreal style captures the magic and personal narrative of artists, bringing a sense of extraordinary to the mundane. He is easy to work with, professional, and wholly dedicated to his craft. I'm lucky to work with him."
