Hi. How are you?

I'm Jonathan. I hope you're healthy and safe in this.

I believe the camera is a tool that can shake the foundations of power.

I focus the lens on people building a better world. I believe in the fire of the 

storytellers I meet, and I admire the risk takers in the fight.

 

I've been privileged to freelance shoot, produce, and edit pieces working with a

variety of clients. If you're here you're likely on my wavelength.

Let's make some art together.

In my free time I try to be a good uncle, dependable friend and brother, and

outstanding basketball player.

Much Love,

Jonathan
