Team Individual Portrait set
I’ve been lucky enough to do a couple of shoots with Jon! His photos have always turned out to be great due to his creativity and attentiveness to detail. If I have an idea for a shoot, he quickly comes up with locations and poses that capture my vision exactly!Jan 27, 2020
Jon is wonderful! I felt valued as a client and he made me feel so comfortable in front of the camera. He even guided me with poses since he has a solid background in taking senior photos which made things run even more smoothly. He was transparent and responsive and happy to accommodate my preferences. He is a well rounded photographer and will do what he can to make you a happy client! And not to mention, he is so much fun to be around and such a kind and guiding light! Just know you will be in great hands. I highly recommend and his wonderful work!Jan 20, 2020
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?In high school, I was apart of our E-Communcations program where we focused on all aspects of digital media including film, photography, bisual broadcasting, graphic design, web design, and animation. I furthered my education through KU's film and media program until I started working as a studio photographer. My education from there was gained through work experience and mentorship.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I started diving into the visual arts back in middle school, creating short films and taking behind the scenes images and portraits for my friends. I had begun my freelance work through word of mouth of friends and family, but I began my professional career when I accompanied my sister to her senior portrait studio session at a local studio. While the photographer was away getting gear, I casually posed my sister and told her where to turn her face for the best lighting. When the photographer returned she asked if I'd be interested in a job and my professional studio career grew from there.
- What types of customers have you worked with?I have worked with clients of all ages and various backgrounds. While the majority of my studio photography career was mostly centered around high school seniors, my freelance career has been more active in family portraits, graduations, engagements and proposals, wedding ceremonies, models looking to build their portfolio, and local creatives wanting to showcase their work
