Jason Chavez was born in Los Angeles CA, but raised in a small rural desert town in California. Growing up in a small town with not much to do Jason was introduced to skateboarding around 1998 and instantly fell in love with it. Fast forward to his high school years Jason also picked up a camera and began shooting skateboarding photos of his friends. Jason also graduated from California State University Northridge with a B.A. Anthropology. That said, he interconnects both anthropology and photography to create stories with his work. Now, the love of photography has only grown.
