What do you do after becoming one of France's highest-paid male models? You become a fashion photographer, of course. Or that's what Robert Jaso did, anyways, and by looking at the fruits of his work, we think his change of career was a wise choice.
The Slovakia-born Jaso who moved to France with his family at the age of five and fell into the fashion world by accident when he was spotted by a booker This started a successful 10-year stint in front of the cameras. A decade is a quite some time for a model, so when Jaso was looking for a change and something with more longevity, photography seemed like the next obvious step in his career. Having already had such an amazing first-hand look into how the fashion industry works, Jaso then spent several years working on and refining his own signature style that can now be seen in magazines around the world.
Still based in Paris, but being sent to all corners of the globe to work on various campaigns and shoots, he currently spends most of his time working for Italian Vogue.
With a passion for creating stories and a keen interest in all things technical and aesthetic, Jaso creates carefully constructed images that are strong and beautiful with a hint of quirkiness. By Brendan McKnight.
