‘We worked with Gaia Visual for our 2018 event on illegal wildlife trade for which they realised a video synopsis summarising our goals. It was a pleasure to work with Jonathan and Laura who always adapted to our needs with confidence and positivity.’

‘Jonathan is a true pro. He is personable, professional and passionate, and knows how to get the best photo out of the situation, while putting his subjects at ease. He worked with me on a sensitive story with an inspirational lady who lost her hands and feet – he handled the shoot with warmth and tact, and knew instinctively what the editor was looking for.’

“I enjoy working with Jonathan and admire his work. Jonathan has an engaging personality, making people feel easily at ease. His passion for his profession shines through his work. He is most professional in his approach. He is adaptable and engaged: he takes the time to understand what his clients need, and delivers high class imagery that matches those needs perfectly.”

We were very happy with Jonathan's work. His photos were outstanding. His technical skills are superb, but what makes him special is creativity. He did a particularly excellent job of capturing the ambience of the location and the energy of people in the shots. He was also a real pleasure to work with.

“Jonathan showed up with a level of professionalism, aesthetic sensibility, emotional intelligence, and pragmatism that endeared him to me and the participants in the program. He fully participated even as he skilfully videoed and photographed the people and processes we were engaged in. What was striking about his presence was his ability to artfully position himself for the best angles of photography without being intrusive.  I was so appreciative because he captured the essence of our effort to facilitate the emergence of transformational leadership in our participants.”

“Hands down one of the most incredibly gifted photographers I have ever had the privilege to work with. I was at the front of the room recommending Jonathan to 50 business owners recently when the full force of what Jonathan does hit me - I choked on the tears as I described Jonathan's ability to capture life, energy, beauty and hold it in an image that would make any PR kit, media kit, or photo initiative soar above the others.”

“ Amid scenes of absolute devastation after the Tsunami, Jonathan showed a remarkable rapport with his subjects that translated into a unique body of work that was both artistically satisfying and met IOM’s corporate needs as a donor-funded inter-governmental agency  responding to a major humanitarian emergency. His subjects, who included traumatized Acehnese children and adults, IOM emergency staff, Japanese military doctors and IOM’s Director General, all responded to his relaxed, entertaining, but highly professional performance. Feedback was universally positive, notably from Japan, one of IOM’s major donors. The pictures were also promptly and professionally edited and captioned. They can be found in IOM’s online media library at http://medialib.iom.int/search/results?s[keywords]=perugia&s[class]=image..”

“The photographs helped to promote the school I worked in and raise their profile. The natural way Jonathan works with his clients and his flexibility make the experience incredibly positive. His amazing skills helped to produce two sets of photographs that were not only amazing but demonstrated the school's mission and purpose. Thank you. I look forward to working with you again.”
