Jason Odell

"What I like most about Mor-Slo filters is that they don’t produce images with the strong blue or magenta color casts that other very high-density filters do – and the filtration is completely uniform.”

Jason Odell became interested in photography when he received his first camera, a Kodak Ektralite 10, in elementary school. He routinely experimented in his mother's home darkroom and was occasionally allowed to borrow her Nikkormat EL SLR. Jason continued his passion for photography throughout high school, where he was a photographer and editor of the school yearbook.

Jason studied biology at UCLA and later earned his doctorate from the University of California, Riverside. While studying, his field biology work took him to the island of Trinidad, West Indies, where he developed a passion for photographing birds and other wildlife. Jason's doctoral adviser was also an avid nature photographer, so trips to the field always involved packing cameras and lenses.Jason taught at the university level for eight years and has a passion for education.

In 2004, Jason established Luminescence of Nature Photography, dedicated to outdoor photography and photographic education. In addition to writing, he conducts field photography workshops and software training classes for photographers around the world.

Jason is the former co-host of the biweekly photography podcast, The Image Doctors, which aired on iTunes from 2005-2011.
