About Me

Hello my name is Jon and I am an interactive entertainment event photographer based in the Inland Empire / greater LA area of California with priding myself on minimal post processing. I have been shooting for about 12 years now.

As part of my passion for the games industry and the rock / metal scene I have had the pleasure of attended most major events such as E3, Penny Arcade Expo, San Diego Comic Con, Formula Drift, Vans Warped Tour, Rockstar Mayhem Festival, and more.

Along with doing events that involve video games, it comes with doing work with celebrities, promotional models, sponsors, clothing companies, and bands. Most of my band work comes from covering local and upcoming artists with some staples of big named artists while attending shows at House of Blues and festivals such as Rockstar Mayhem Festival.

I have been focusing more recently on studio shoots with pin up, California lifestyle, and more personal projects that will lead me towards shooting tattoo and alt modeling / fashion.

I have great rates, fun personality, and top notch references and testimonials from previous clients.

“Jonathan’s warmth and fun personality puts you at ease the moment you meet him. It’s the little things most people forget such as verbally letting you know they've got the shot, but Jonathan doesn’t. You will always know that you're being taken care of and that he’s got your best interest in mind while working towards creating fantastic images. Though I feel fortunate to have been photographed by him in the convention setting, I still wish I had the opportunity to set up an honest-to-goodness, one-on-one shoot when our paths cross again.”

“Jonathan is not just a photographer; he is a respectful and kind person, who makes life, as well as photos, an enjoyable experience. The high pace days and long hours that we worked together at the Penny Arcade Expo in Seattle was enjoyable and definitely made the time go quickly! If you want to work with a professional that takes his job seriously but doesn't make you feel as though you have to be serious to take a fantastic picture you should contact him.”

“Jonathan procures fantastic photos catching great moments. With respect to those photographed he will not post unless well liked and is quick with the turn around to delivery.”
