Several years ago, Jason took one of what no one would have guessed would be countless hiking trips into the forests of Western Washington. On a whim, he grabbed his camera. It wasn't the most expensive or professional camera by any means, but he wanted it handy just in case he saw something "neat".

After returning from the hike, Jason downloaded the pictures he snapped while sweating his way up and down the many hills along his chosen path. He was immediately fascinated by how certain photos turned out — he'd thought while taking at the time that they'd be silly shots, but why not?

And from that moment, Jason was hooked on finding the unusual shots that many of us would never see ourselves. His passion for finding those hidden shots right in front of our face truly amazes.
