I CALL IT A R T O G R A P H Y
I am Passionate about art, design, music, books, travels, animals and outdoors and being a father of 3, I have learned to appreciate and value all those little moments life shows us when we look.
All of these things a huge inspiration to find new clues to develop my photography language. My photographic research & method is based on a natural style, by seeking the simplicity to go straight to the essence, showing only the pure and delicate, wonderful fragility of the soul, expressed in a Soft and Romantic way. I want to photograph spontaneous and authentic moments by using natural light as the only instrument to create timeless images. I want our pictures to have that sense of timeless and mystery driven by a feeling. Storytelling is the most important part of giving structure and tone to the photograph as well as how the images are stylistically captured.
I want our stories to be cinematic and focus on your feelings.
“I WANT TO GO STRAIGHT TO THE HEART & SOUL”
These elements help to create, in addition to memory, a coherent world. I love telling every detail of a story, for me it is simple things to give true value and it was just love for simple things to lead us to a more humane and poetic photography focused to capture the purest essence. Whether it’s a wedding, an elopement, a commitment, I will document our time together, trying to create a pleasant and unforgettable experience for you, like spending time with your friends. I believe in the beauty of everyday life. That ordinary may be extraordinary, that small moments are the most important. I want simple things and big feelings and share extraordinary adventures with you. Your photos should not be forced.
They should be natural and emotional, a direct reflection of your story and relationship.
My clients are important to me and I put my soul in telling their stories. I try to make the relationship with them become a collaboration, and to be able to establish a friendly relationship, sharing emotions, smiles and unique and memorable moments that create a bond that we will always remember forever.
I love what I do, there is nothing more satisfying than the tears/joy a picture brings to someone who genuinely love what we have made together. without the wonderful people I work with, my pictures are empty. I am a people watcher & always have been.. It’s an honor for me to be allowed photograph one of the most special days of their lives. JF..

We hired Jason for our wedding and could not have been happier with our photos. Like a lot of Irish some of our bridal party do not like having their photos taken however Jason's laid back approach put everyone at ease and meant we got some great photos that really captured the
feeling of our day! We were delighted to see the results in our album and would definitely recommend FINNimaje for anyone's big day. Gillian O'Shea reviewed FINNimaje — 5 star

Jason definitely receives a 5* review from us.
We had great fun on the morning of our wedding which was induced by Jason's relaxed demeanor and confident ability to set up beautiful photos without our knowing.
The whole day went without a hitch and Jason caught every minute of it-telling our story in the form of a beautiful album.
From getting ready at home-to the ceremony and even a trip to the circus for some really vivid unusual shots!
We wouldn't change a single thing and our gorgeous photo album is definitely one of our most prized possessions!
We would 100% recommend FINNimaje !!

My sister in law and I found Finnimaje at a wedding show years ago, for her wedding.
He did such an amazing job for her and my brother.
So when it came to my own wedding a few years later, I knew exactly who I wanted.
Jason came all the way to inishbofin and took the most fabulous shots. He made our special day last forever! X

We had Jason photograph our wedding day, which was one of the best decisions we made in planning our wedding.
He is so easy to talk to, and listens to what you want and like.
He made us both relaxed and got on well with everyone - both family and friends as well as the other people we had hired on the day.
He was so discrete on the day, that we forgot he was there most of the time, was quick and efficient meaning more time with our guests, and created the most stunning photos in pretty mundane surroundings.
His pictures speak for themselves, they are amazing! He gave us a balance between the usual family portraits as well as unique pictures that you won't see in anyone else's album.
We absolutely love the photos from our wedding, they tell the story of our day as well as giving us beautiful photos of ourselves which we will cherish always!
Thanks Jason and everyone at Finnimaje!

FINNimage done the photography for our wedding.
The first thing we did when planning our wedding was hire a really good photographer... Like they say......
your Wedding Day is just one day but the photographs are forever!
We came across FINNimage at the wedding journal show in the RDS.
I couldn't recommend Finnimage highly enough! Jason was very friendly, professional, and as someone who hates having her photo taken I felt very at ease with Jason.
Who better than a multi award winning photographer to take your wedding photos.....
The hardest part was choosing which photos to use in our album as they were all amazing!!
