How’s it 👋 I’m Jon — a photographer and visual storyteller.

Right now I’m working on a photobook called Outbound. It’s about San Francisco’s west side and what makes it special.

Sometimes I draw in my sketchbook and post about it on Instagram and on my blog. It’s just a fun thing, nothing serious.

A while back I had a cool job at GoPro that sent me around the world taking pictures. I roadtripped across Europe shooting a really famous bike race.

I spent a week on a boat in the Bahamas diving with sharks and dolphins — tiger, hammerhead, and bull sharks — without a cage. I did end up in the ER, but that was for splitting my head in an underwater cave.

We rode mountain bikes through the black sands of Mount Batur, a dormant volcano on the island of Bali.

I also got to photograph surf on the North Shore of Oahu with some of surfing’s most legendary characters.

Before that I was a newspaper photographer in Santa Cruz. It’s where I cut my teeth in photography: portraiture, sports, breaking news, features, and more. Still my favorite job of all.
