Hey Y'all...

Jon here. I take photos - mostly of people much like yourself. 

Born and raised in Northern Virginia, I currently live in New York City (Astoria, Queens - to be precise) with my Broadway-bound girlfriend, Kat, my cameras, and my grey hat.

Growing up, my friends always called me a "theatre kid in denial", so I made a career out of it. I love cooking (eating), traveling (also eating), and history-nerding (probably still somehow eating). I'm also a hobbyist magician (and no, I will not make your friend disappear or produce a million dollars, but I might  find your card). 

Ask me anything - I'm an open book...

Headshots

Sessions starting at $349- See rate sheet HERE

Ahh yes, headshots. Those things that every actor, actress, dancer, model, and corporate-somebody needs to be seen. No, not seen - remembered. My biggest objective during your headshot session, aside from your comfort, is getting to know you. Who are you? What are you passionate about? What do you want your headshots to tell casting directors? Your audiences? The world? My aim is to capture not just a striking photograph, but a tangible representation of you.

Weddings

Quotes available on a case-by-case basis

First and foremost - CONGRATULATIONS! Photography has provided me the opportunity to witness some of the most significant moments and milestones in others' lives. I seek to build relationships with my couples, their families, and guests so as to not feel like just another vendor. To this photojournalist, your wedding is front-page news. Let's make your walk down the aisle as confident as Tyra Banks on a runway, and capture a story that will be shared for generations.

Dance & Creative Portraits

Sessions Starting at $349

Dance photography is a collaboration between two artists, each using their own metaphorical brush strokes to create a distinct image. As half of that dynamic, I enjoy the process of illustrating a dancer's line to compliment, create, or convey. A majority of my dance work is done outdoors, using the world as our stage and the environment as our inspiration. Whether it's demonstrating a dancer's ability, or blending two juxtaposed themes to create a visual feast, each shoot is as unique as the individual.

Events & Photojournalism

Starting at $250 per Hour

From U.S. presidents and CEOs, to mitzvahs, meetings, and marches - there's nothing too obscure. When asked about my favorite aspect of my job, my answer is always "access". Access to interesting people, fascinating places, and new perspectives. Newspaper photojournalism was the dawning of my professional experience, and thus my love of all things noteworthy was born. You've put a lot of work into planning your next event. Put some trust in a photographer that'll prove you pulled it off.

Personal Branding Sessions

Starting at $349

As a small business, YOU are your brand and your photos are a reflection of that. Customized to you and your style, we create dynamic portraits that tell your audience what they can expect when they hire you. Trust me, I *hate* having my photo taken and I empathize with being on that side of the camera, thus using that experience to make you as comfortable and confident as possible. Are you ready to become to face of your company?

Couples & Family Portraits

Sessions starting at $349

I bring my sessions into the 21st Century by walking you through fun prompts and capturing genuine, seemingly candid moments between you and your loved ones, rather than the criminally awkward poses of yesteryear. Portraits shouldn’t feel like a chore - let me join you on a casual date with your partner or a fun family outing with the kids and I’ll do all the hard work - throw your selfie sticks away and let me handle this.

Fashion

Quotes available on a case-by-case basis

Ah ha! You found my secret fashion portfolio! Throughout my work, you'll find allusions to my love of fashion, whether it's in the textures, the movements, the lighting, or moods. I find the understanding of these elements to be invaluable to my creative clients, regardless of genre. With experience in editorial, commercial, fitness, lingerie, and e-commerce, perhaps you'll be my next favorite client!
