PODCAST – #63 Aleksandar Jason (Aussie photographer & entrepreneur).
Sitting here buzzing after my interview with Australian commercial, sports and wedding photographer, Aleksandar Jason.
Aleks and I met in Brunswick St, Fitzroy (Melbourne) back in 2011 through wicked Aussie bands The Belligerents and The Griswolds. At the time, Aleks was shooting for his music photography blog, adamNoteve and working with Johann Ponniah (founder of Australian music company, brand and independent record label, I Oh You!), whilst I was working in the music industry and also shooting freelance music photography for Hot & Delicious/various other publications.
Flash forward 5 years and Aleks now has an impressive list of commercial clients that he’s worked with including Nike, Vice Magazine, Oakley, Heineken, Jameson Whiskey, General Pants just to name a few… Not only that, he has a thriving wedding photography business, is Melbourne City’s (A-League Football) official photographer and has well over 140,000 followers on Instagram.
Super inspiring chats as we talk of Aleks’ experience of being flown to Spain as Heineken’s official photographer/Instagrammer for the UEFA Champions League, being followed on Instagram by Instagram and featured by Instagram on their platform… twice! and much, much more.
Aleksandar Jason exemplifies the hard work, hunger and determination it takes to build a successful business doing what you love for a living.
Just awesome… Let’s get amongst it!
