Jason Florio the Gambia

I first met Jason in 2006 when I was teaching a portfolio review seminar at Mediabistro. As soon as he laid his work on the long table it was clear Jason was an immense talent. I showed him a stronger way to sequence the work he was presenting, and so began a relationship that continues to this day.

Not only have I watched Jason grow in stature as a photographer, but I have seen an incredible drive and a focused direction grow as well. Jason is now a multi-award winning photographer who has shown in museums and galleries, been published in magazines, and been featured online on FlakPhoto, La Lettre, ProPhotoDaily, and Burn among others.

Most recently I’ve worked with Jason to edit his website, finding a way to most effectively organize his massive body of work and simplify its presentation to show the breadth of his talent.

“I have worked with Stella on edits of my portfolios and my website. Stella’s straight talking, no nonsense approach is a breath of fresh air, and has pushed me to look and present my work in ways I would never have imagined.
