Luminescence of Nature
is the home of photographer and author Jason P. Odell, Ph.D. Founded in 2004, Luminescence of Nature is dedicated to the education of creative photographers in the digital age.
Jason P. 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.
