“Photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting an ordinary place… It has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” – Elliott Erwitt
Based in Liverpool, Jon is a freelance photographer working throughout the North West of England, surrounding areas and further afield, creating images for people, the media and businesses. With over 20 years of experience, during which time Jon has built a broad portfolio of work. Trained to degree level in Visual Communications, specialising in photography, Jon has a passion for the production of the still image.
Photography has been a significant part of Jon’s entire life. His father, a professional photographer himself, gave Jon his first camera for his birthday in the 1980s, a Kodak 110 Instamatic film camera. What started out as a hobby has grown into a lifelong love affair with photography.
Jon assisted his father at many photo shoots and weddings from his early teens before moving up to work alongside him as a photographer. Jon has worked as a photographer at residential sports camps for children based in Croyden, carried out photography duties as a civil servant working for COI, the North West branch of the government press office, and is currently employed as a photographer at the University of Chester, as well as carrying out freelance photo shoots.
With a friendly, flexible and professional manner, Jon has relished meeting countless fascinating people during the many photo shoots he has undertaken and he has been lucky to be able to photograph some of the things he loves, music and sport.
Photographs hold memories and in a constantly fast moving world, using photography to freeze a moment in time is valuable. Whether Jon is capturing the first kiss of newlyweds, the wonder of a beautiful landscape, the energy of a rock concert or the speed of a cycle race, Jon never ceases to get excited by the image he is creating and the impact photographs can make.
Jon's strong photographic background, camera and digital post-processing skills allow him to deliver high quality images that best interpret the clients brief. Whether it is striking black and white images, vivid colour and action, studio photography, treasured family portraits or wedding pictures that you will cherish forever, Jon is happy to discuss any projects or commissions without obligation and will offer a tailored service to meet your requirements.
