Portrait of Austin James Jackson

Austin James Jackson is a self-made landscape photographer who divides his time between Portland and Sisters, Oregon. His exceptional skills with the camera are self taught. He has been an outdoor enthusiast for as long as he can remember. However, his passion in photography came about right after high school, when he was gifted a camera and began photographing nature. Austin’s passion for the outdoors shows through in his photography, and each image attempts to recreate the scene from that particular day.

Austin’s knack for catching the perfect light or an amazing sunset helps him produce some of the most compelling images. However, Austin isn’t just a photographer. More than anything, he enjoys getting away from the regular ways of life and enjoying the environment around him. It would not be uncommon to find him standing in an icy river in his wetsuit during a winter storm, or on a lengthy backpacking trip in the summer. Austin has always had high expectations for himself and loves tackling new challenges as often as possible.

Austin’s work has been published worldwide in many media forms, including magazines, calendars, look catalogues, and more. Some of his major clients have been Backpacker Magazine and Kayaking Sessions Magazine. However, Austin’s expertise does not stop here. He also finds himself working with many brands, including ones as large as Aramark Resorts, Cotopaxi, and Big Agnes.
