About Jason Kravitz
The History of Me and Photography
Since a young age, I have thrived on channeling my creative flow through various mediums. Growing up in the 80's, I was fully immersed in the rise of the personal computer. Whether I was learning to write code, play games or toying with graphics applications, the computer was a powerful tool for expressing my creativity. Photography is a relatively new outlet for me although not surprising since my father Steve is an avid photographer. Film always seemed foreign, so it was digital photography that pulled me into the fray. Several years, classes, cameras and lenses later, I find it surprising that I wasn't shooting sooner.
The History of Aminus3
Long ago in the year 2003, I had a strange dream about subtraction, the letter A and the number 3. I spoke with a colorful cast of characters from Owen Wilson to a Full Metal Jacket style drill sergeant. My goal was to discover the answer to the question...
What is A - 3 ?
While I am no stranger to strange dreams, some such as this one seem slightly more significant. I woke up and registered Aminus3.com unsure of what it would become. Nearly a year later, my friend Aaron Schmidt and I decided this would be a nice home for us to share our photos with each other and so Aminus3 the Photoblog site was born. We went on a few more years with a closed community of family and friends before opening the site up to the public. Since then we've been amazed and thankful for the wonderful people from all over the world who have chosen to share their images on our website.
We encourage people with a passion for photography to create an account.
