About Jason Wallis


Bored and uninspired in late-1990s New Zealand, I dropped out of a Master's Degree in Business to pursue my passion: Photography.

(I was spending all my supposed "study-time" photographing catalogs & model portfolios anyway. I knew what I wanted.)

I moved to California & studied at the Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara California in 2000. This was when Earnest Brooks ran the school and there were students from all over the world attending. Technical skill & professionalism was a must there.

Over the last 20 years as a professional I have photographed major campaigns, Fortune 100/500 advertising, photography campaigns for hotels, colleges as well as  numerous fashion lookbooks and clothing catalogs. I have shot for large clients all over California that include The Irvine Company, USC, BNY Mellon, UBS, Memorial Care hopsital system and Vizio among others.

I specialize in rebranding corporate headshot campaigns (consistancy and creativity of multiple people at multiple offices).

My rule is simple: I avoid cheesy photos and cliche'd styles.

Call me anytime to discuss a photoshoot (large or small; no obligation or pressure): (949) 307-3833 or email me.
