Here’s why this photographer has over a million followers on Instagram

Amateurs, hobbyists, and professional photographers, meet your new idol, Jason M. Peterson.

He’s a US-based photographer who’s amassed more than a million followers on Instagram because of his magnificent black and white photos.

We The Pvblic reached out to him for some questions and here’s what he had to say:

WTP: How long have you been taking black & white photos?
Jason: I have been shooting photos for almost 25 years. My goal isn’t to take black and white photos, but to take photos that make you feel something. To me, B&W takes away the distractions to focus on the feeling of the photo.

WTP: What types of cameras do you use?
Jason: iPhone, Leica Q, M10 and SL

WTP: What’s your rule for choosing the subjects of your photos?
Jason: Find the light first and wait for life to happen.

WTP: Any tips to share for fellow B&W photography enthusiasts?
Jason: Shoot everyday, make every photo better than the last, and be humble.
