Meet the Photographer: Jason Hatfield

Jason Hatfield is an outdoor photographer from Colorado specializing in nature and adventure photography. His childhood was spent surrounded by the flat farmlands of the NW Ohio but his family’s regular camping trips out west inspired his love for the mountains and outdoors.
