Zenfolio | Photojournalist Jason Hoekema | About


I am Jason Hoekema. Once a combat veteran and now a photojournalist in the deep South Texas region. I currently work full-time as a staff member at The Brownsville Herald. A Class 2A, daily publication serving the bilingual needs of the unique population along the Texas-Mexico border.

I have invested thousands to procure my own equipment in order to provide freelance services, and I am currently seeking full-time employment with a major news publication or wire service.

So, if I can be of assistance in meeting your photographic needs, personal or professional, please contact me by calling (254) 238-3433 or by emailing me at jason.hoekema@gmail.com.
