Red 5 Photography is the alter ego of Jason Squyres, a New Braunfels, Texas Based Landscape Photographer. “When I was young, I can’t remember what age, I picked up my fathers Canon FTb and never looked back”. It all started with film cameras and then on to digital, but always Canon. If I am nothing else, I am a faithful.
When I started pointing a camera at things and pushing buttons, it was to satisfy my creative side, and that is true to this day. It wasn’t ever anything that I thought about doing for a living because that would take the enjoyment out of it, or so I thought. When I realized I could make money doing something I love, well that was all icing. Photography isn’t cheap after all.
Over the past few years, I have been blessed enough to have my images in various magazines, featured on several websites, and even won a few awards here and there. It is still to this day, humbling and makes me a little uncomfortable. Behind the camera is where I prefer to be and for some reason, I have never been comfortable with the attention.
Photography is something that I truly love, it has changed my life in many ways, I like to think they have all been positive. Landscape photography goes hand in hand with another favorite past time, being in the great outdoors. Some of my favorite memories come from heading out for a well-planed photo trip, just to be denied the opportunity to even take the camera out due to weather or conditions. Getting out to a location and just enjoying Gods creations can be better than any image I may have wanted to take.
Life outside of photography is filled with a lot of support from my greatest love and what I consider to be proof that everyone has a special someone out there, Mrs. Red 5 herself. Stephanie and I got married in September of 2010 and I love her more than Snape loves Lily. When I am not out getting lost in Texas, we eat, drink, and travel with the occasional Netflix marathon spent not getting off the couch.
