JASON MAGEAU is a professional photographer with years of experience shooting for major brands and insurgent underground artists alike. He has a bulletproof reputation in the music industry as a photographer, web designer, personal manager, and young entrepreneur. He cofounded a business that made the Inc. 500 list at number 232 for one of the fastest private growing companies in America.
His photography work has been used for international album campaigns for releases affiliated with Sony Music, Universal Music Group, and larger indie labels alike.
He has shot for Trip Advisor and Oyster. His work appears in tastemaker rock music publications, including Revolver, Rock Sound, Alternative Press, Music Connection, Modern Drummer, Outburn, and Substream. Moodygrams, Instagood, Bleachfilm, and other popular Instagram hubs have proudly showcased his photographs.
Yet despite all of these impressive accomplishments, Mageau credits something beautifully simple yet enduringly profound as his inspirational source: fatherhood.
After learning in his high school darkroom and pursuing a multimedia degree at Brooks College in Long Beach, California, Mageau put the camera away to focus on developing a career in the independent music scene and among lifestyle brands.
“I picked the camera back up when my son Brixton was born and immediately fell in love with capturing and documenting his life,” Mageau explains. “I wanted to leave behind and create something for him with which he could see his childhood through my eyes.”
Whether working on a social media campaign for major brands, such as smartphone-centered technology company Mophie, or capturing unique landscapes and portraits for display in personal residences and businesses, Mageau maintains a keen eye for fine art minded detail. Whether working in his much beloved black and white tones or vibrant full color, Mageau has a knack for harnessing the drama, beauty, pathos, imagination, and dynamics of everyday locations, people, animals, and life.
