Jason Brownrigg was born in New York City, and returned there to study at Parsons School of Design after growing up in sunny California. His love for photography began at age ten when he started taking pictures with a plastic camera given to him by his father. These first pictures turned out as shiny 4x6 abstracts of color and light. He had to explain to people what was in most of his photographs, but knew that he was on to something great.
His study of photography continued as a printer with Michael Amoruso for Bruce Webber and with Neil Selkirk for the estate of Diane Arbus. The hours spent in the dark were a gift. He saw how one great photographer will shape the world in front of the camera, while another will try and leave it just as it is in order to take the picture they want most to see. Working with The New York Times staff photographer Fred Conrad, portrait photographer Neil Selkirk and fashion photographer Diego Uchitel has taught him the craft of working creatively with a team and to develop a story while still finding a sense of truth and beauty in every picture.
His clients include Uniqlo, 2(x)ist, DKNY, Diane Von Furstenberg, Neiman Marcus, Kenneth Cole, Adrianna Papell, Talbots, Bloomingdales, MoMA and the U.S. Air Force.
