About this pro

I teach both one on one and in small groups. I encourage creativity from each individual.  I utilize my background in counseling to foster and enhance positive thinking.

As a photographer I believe that the subject is the inspiration. As a teacher I inspire my students to look inside themselves. 

Jason Mehrtens Photography was founded in 2010, after working for 15 years in social work. I attended the Academy of Art University and opened up my own studio in Los Angeles in 2012. Through techology and a keen eye that focuses on trends in the ever involving field of photography, I have coached my students to open their minds.
