An Evening with Jason Lee

Jason Lee

Written by Chris Cantore

Born in 1970 in Orange, California, Jason Lee is a photographer, actor, producer, director, and skater.

Yup, before ruling the big (and little) screen in Hollywood, Lee established a successful career as a professional skateboarder during skateboarding’s pivotal late 80s and early 90s period. Despite retiring from skateboarding in 1995, Lee continued co-managing Stereo Skateboards with co-founder and former professional skateboarder Chris Pastras.

In 2002, the My Name Is Earl actor developed a passion for photography. Dedicating himself to pursuing the medium as a creative profession, his photographic works have since been featured in multiple exhibitions, magazines, and books.  2018’s A PLAIN VIEW, Jason Lee’s debut publication, consists of selected large format color film photographs Lee created throughout Texas. This image is entitled “HWY 90 West of Comstock.”
