Introduction Hello, My name is Jonathan. I love photography film, digital, slide, in any format. I started with Black & white film at the University of Portland spending hours in the dark. I grew up exploring the mountains, and high deserts of Western Colorado. I have a passion for great light; all kinds harsh, soft, low light, natural light or studio lighting. Great lighting makes great photographs. Edward Curtis, Stephen Dalton, Edward Weston are all photographers I look up too. I have a unique past. I was an accomplished ceramic sculpture years before my photography. I was also hurt very badly when I was 17, by electricity it effects me everyday. Art has helped me move positively through my life. Living and photographing in Santa Cruz for 4 years has really evolved my style. I look forward to being an active part of the community.
