Spotlight: Jason Hindley

Jason Hindley.

Jason Hindley’s commercial career began as one half of the acclaimed still-life duo Giblin & James, who produced distinctive images for numerous ad campaigns worldwide. In 2006, Jason ventured out of the studio environment and began to pursue his own personal style of photography, capturing enchanting images of the mundane and ordinary and focusing on the small oddities in everyday life that can so easily go unnoticed. “If I were to name the essential qualities that make a photograph my own, I would say ‘subtle, observed, understated,’” says Jason.

We might add “humorous” to that list, but Jason points out that humor isn’t his goal. “I don’t aim to create images that are wacky or humorous in an in-your-face way,” he says. “I like to be subtle, and most of the time, the element of humor comes as a byproduct of my trying to give my imagery some character or by approaching the images from a slightly different angle.”

In 2009, Jason amicably closed the chapter on Giblin & James in order to focus on bringing together his location work with his award-winning studio still-life work. His advertising and editorial clients include HSBC, Evian, Super Glue, Rachael Ray Every Day, Money, BlackBerry, Tropicana, and J&B.

“I love to find beauty in the most mundane and banal environments/subject matters,” he says. “I find this more exciting than simply photographing stunning scenery or a beautiful object. I find inspiration in everything—even in an electric kettle and some cups in a bed & breakfast room, a pair of flip-flops, or some egg cartons in a supermarket.”
