About Jon

Hello, I'm Jon.


I'm all about adventure photography, where my passions for mountaineering and photography, intertwine. From the vast beauty of landscapes to the thrill of adventure sports and the awe-inspiring world of astrophotography, I find joy living in, and capturing these moments.


Looking ahead, my professional aspirations revolve around a blend of marketing and branding work, combined with the hands-on experience of conducting outdoor photography workshops. I envision a future where I can balance these elements, sharing my love for the outdoors while creating impactful visual narratives.
