My name is Jason Nakrani, and I was born in Michigan surrounded by the auto industry and the Great Lakes. I left Michigan after graduation and moved to North Carolina where I fell in love with the fact that I could be in the Appalachian mountains roaming the Blue Ridge Parkway one day and be on the coast visiting the Outer Banks and Atlantic ocean the next.
My photography stems from my passion for creating striking images of vibrant and powerful landscapes, people I work with, fine art black-and-white stills, and even animals that jump out of my photos and into your arms.
North Carolina provides a backdrop of incredible locations for themed shoots. Location, however, is just one piece of the photographic puzzle: lighting, subject matter, composition, backdrop, and behind the scenes preparation must all come together to bring a shoot alive.
