Jonathan has a hard-earned reputation for
getting the job done well, on time, and on budget.
With budgets shrinking and location costs being the
way that they are, the difference between getting
the shots and not getting the shots often comes
down to having the skill to do it right the first
time. Whether it's cold arctic water, warm tropical
water or somewhere in between, Jonathan has worked
in nearly every underwater environment under all
kinds of conditions and has the experience to
deliver results consistently.
Jonathan has worked on assignment as a still
photographer for dozens of magazines and catalogs,
and as a cinematographer for television networks
and production companies. He has three Emmy Awards for his television work.
Jonathan recently completed shooting a half-hour special for National Geographic Television's series Extreme Exposures which will be released in 2010. Jonathan was the director of photography and the field producer for the entire program.
He was hired to shoot
underwater video sequences for CNN's coverage of
the JFK Jr. plane crash in the cold and murky
Atlantic Ocean near Martha's Vineyard in 1999. His
work has appeared on nearly every major television
network in the U.S., including PBS, ABC, and
Discovery Channel, as well as networks across the
globe. Several of his underwater
documentaries have aired in over 20 countries
including England, France, Germany, Italy, Japan,
Canada, Australia, China and many more. He is
frequently found traveling the world, working on
assignment for production companies, networks and
advertising firms. You can view his demo

documentary that he produced. Why mess around? Hire
