My name is Jason Hoekema, I am a freelance photojournalist living in the South Texas Area. I shoot strictly in a photojournalistic style: wedding, birthday, stock art gathering... it does not change how I shoot. It is responsive and requires constant thinking and change... and I love it.
I started my interest in photography at 17 and worked as both a freelance and staff photographer while I attended college. Recently my work has been featured in The Brownsville Herald, and I continue to work as a freelance in the local area.
Above all, I enjoy projects which immerse myself into the world of what I am photographing. I am working on several personal projects that showcase the community and some of the folks we really don't take a second look at. I love my backyard and wish nothing more to let everyone in the world see what I see, hear what I hear, and at times feel what I feel.
I am available for editorial work, sports, or wedding/party events. I am currently seeking a staff position at a publication here in the South Texas area, or with any state-level or national publication or association as a regional photographer. Resume and references upon request.
Please take time to browse my site. It certainly delivers better than the 12 shots on this page. Thanks for your time, hope to work for you soon!
