Jarrod Ames Photographer

I live and work in Las Vegas, Nevada. My inspiration for my photography comes from my love of art. I originally used to draw and paint as kid and eventually went to college for that. However, about 9 years ago I visited a Peter Lik gallery here in Las Vegas. That visit spurred my interest into photography. My grandmother was probably my biggest personal influence as she was the family shutter bug. I love her and miss her very much... 

It wasn't until August of 2013 that I decided to really take on photography. I started off slowly, reading and studying all about photography and cameras. So for my birthday in September, I decided to purchase my first real digital SLR. Yet, it wasn't until my trip to the Antelope Slot Canyons in February of 2014; that I truly realized my passion and gift for photography. I hope you enjoy my images as much as I enjoy taking them!
