Hi. I’m Jarod.

I don’t like writing about myself in the third person.

I’m not your vintage-inspired, insta-filtered photographer friend who goes hiking every weekend. But I do own some flannel shirts.

I don’t think the Fisher Price camera I used as a kid has anything to do with me becoming a photographer.

I don’t hashtag. I mean, except when I do.

I don’t care about curating my brand. Or if that’s even how those words go together.

I like bold colors. I like people to laugh hysterically. I like people to look introspective. I like when people look just slightly to the left.

“Oh, uh, my left.”

I like weird photos. I like clean photos with straight lines. I don’t have anything against centered compositions. (Clearly.)

I live in Phoenix. I think it’s neat. (Even if it is a terribly impractical place to inhabit.)

I have some awards and accolades and clients. But, like, who the fuck cares?

I think I’m terribly awkward, but nobody believes me.

I don’t have a strong opinion about pineapple on pizza. It’s fine.

I’m not quite sure how to use paragraphs.

I obsessed over this stupid profile, but I don’t want you to think I did.
