Hey, I’m Jonny. I love helping clients embrace and celebrate their individuality, by crafting and creating art that is captivating and evocative. I strive to produce timeless imagery that is authentic, empowering, and, most of all, meaningful to those I collaborate with.
My approach is rooted in creating a genuine connection with whomever I am working alongside. That connection allows for a relaxed environment that functions as a creative interlude to the chaos and noise of everyday life. I utilize my knowledge and experience, in addition to my goofy sense of humor, to cultivate an atmosphere that inspires those in front of my camera to portray and embody their vision or that of the project, and express their true selves with ease and poise.
Photography and people are my great passions, in life. In a world where moments blur by and memories fade, photography provides a poetic means to not only create the sublime but capture and archive the paramount. As a natural storyteller, I am drawn to and driven by the ability to design and construct visual narratives that entwine and blend the real and imagined.
My unique aesthetic is derived from a variety of eclectic sources including cinema, nature, literature, and, especially, the great masters of painting. I credit the latter with my notable and lauded use of light and shadow. Forever-fascinated by all things analog, I am impelled by the challenge and reward of integrating the emotion and mood of film with modern, digital tools. In addition to being published in a broad spectrum of reputable publications, I’ve also shown and shared my work in a variety of gallery and fine-art settings.
Rather than prattle on endlessly about myself, here are few things my clients have said, in regards to collaborating with me:
“I absolutely love working with Jonny. His passion and sense of humor make every shoot a good time, with stunning results. He is a wonderful photographer and person, who has amazing creative abilities.”
“Jonny is professional, beyond knowledgeable, very kind, and genuine. He cares about every part of the process. If you get an opportunity to collab with him, I promise, you will be honored to be a part of the stories he tells through his lens.”
“I’ve always felt awkward in front of the camera and he made the experience feel like we were belly up at the bar reminiscing the afternoon away. I am in awe of the way he captures a moment. It always stops me in my tracks. He is a storyteller through and through – and I am a forever fan.”
When I’m not in my studio or on-location, you can find me exploring nature, traveling, attending the ballet, sipping kombucha, dancing at concerts, volunteering in the community, or herding cats. I believe that life is meant to be shared and do my best to spend as much time as possible with friends, family, and loved ones; there’s nothing more important than the people, and furry-friends, in my life. Especially, Rachel, my lovely partner in crime.
I’m honored and grateful to be part of the incredible, and incredibly vibrant, arts community in Denver, Colorado. My studio is located in East Denver, though I travel all over the city, state, and nation for location work and projects. I’m well versed in both the urban and natural landscape and regularly vacillate between skyscrapers, open plains, street murals and aspen groves.
