Behind the Lens

Jamie Rock

I picked up my first camera in the 9th grade. In the beginning, I was simply taking photos for my friends and myself, but after some time I started seeing a very positive reaction to the photos and video that I had captured. To make people happy like this and see the smiles on their faces was like no other feeling, and I knew that this was something I wanted to pursue. I would always go to the local skate park in my hometown Saratoga Springs, NY, to take photos and videos while my friends would ride. I would be there for hours on end until the battery died in my camera. My friend Dan, who is now the vice president of JRV, was always there by my side and one day he decided to pick a camera up for himself. It came to me as I was helping him learn the ropes that this is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. Not only would I start my own production/ photography business but I would use this business as a platform in a revolution to help younger kids get experience in the field of production life.

Laura Hogan

My name is Laura Hogan and I’m a photographer here at Jrockvision. I became interested in pursuing a career in photography a little ways down the road from meeting jamie. In fact, up until that point in time I had only ever been in front of the camera, getting my picture taken instead of being behind it taking the picture. However, I started questioning what was so special about being behind the camera after assisting jamie at many photoshoots. At every photoshoot I used to ask myself, “ How can he be working and still his smile never leaves his face?” I decided to make jamie my mentor, learn a few things about the camera and photography itself until the day I picked the camera up myself. That day, the day of my first photoshoot, I fell in love with photography. I came to an epiphany that behind the camera I am able to capture memories that clients will be able to look back at and cherish for the rest of their lives. I’m able to capture what a photoshoot feels like instead of what is looks like. And theres no better feeling than knowing years down the road when my clients are gathered around a kitchen table reminiscing on old times and looking at pictures, I was able to help capture those moments. And that is why i’m behind the camera.
