I'm Jon. My site at ......... www.jansonphotographer.com
I am a 'semi early retired' artist and commercial photographer.
I'm professionally qualified and experienced and hold both Bachelors and Masters Degrees in art and photography, awarded by fully accredited UK universities and peer reviewed by UK academics.
I have also been awarded the distinctions of Associate of the Royal Photographic Society and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.
My Credentials are..
BA Hons. MA. FRSA. ARPS.
Needless to say I take both art and photography very seriously, and sometimes not very seriously at all!
In order to finance all of the above, I washed dishes, every evening, in an Italian restaurant for a number of years. So I'm also very good at washing dishes!
I'm most interested in concepts (In art a "concept" is a bringing together of ideas), brought through to resolution (Job done), which means I like to plan from ideas , so definitely not a quicky, snappy kinda guy. I'm told that I have a good sense of humour and am fun to work with. I'm a people person.
I'm a professional in the true sense of the word both academically and commercially (I had bills to pay) and therefore maintain a high level of professional ethics.
The world of hobbyist model photography can be a complex one and is largely unregulated. I've therefore found it necessary to state my own legally advised terms and conditions. I'm sorry about the 'bullet point' format but I have noticed that many models adopt this format in order to be totally clear and concise about their work 'levels', limits and legal conditions. I feel that it works well and helps avoid misunderstandings.
I always endeavour to make the shoot an interesting, enjoyable, safe and above all fun experience.
About me less formally...
I'm a military veteran who eventually escaped and got himself into university art school. Six years of hard study reading virtually incomprehensible books that made my brain hurt! In other words I'm totally bonkers. I'm an artist because that what it says on all my qualifications. I mostly choose to use a camera to make art.
I'm an eternal optimist and natural altruist, I'm never negative, life's just too short. I love most art and creativity and I love people that are full of creative energy. Artistically I guess I'm a Post-structuralist. I shoot all kinds of stuff and also draw and sometimes paint all kinds of stuff. In my approach the subject is secondary.
In terms of creativity there's only one rule in the production of art and that is... THERE ARE NO RULES!.
NO RULES! Aesthetics are not universal, they are entirely subjective. We all see differently. Creativity requires that traditions are broken, tradition being a refuge for those that fear change. Do what your heart tells you to do because your heart never lies, it doesn't know how. Viewing someone else's photo gives you the unique opportunity to get an idea of how they see. Kinda like an eyeball transplant! WoW!
I love meeting good people and having a good time, which I've found over the years is a good way to make good images, along with breaking bad rules, however I try to make a good job of breaking bad rules.
So if you want to shoot or just talk art or photography, either technically or philosophically, please get in touch. I always reply. I like sharing what knowledge and experience I have before it all disappears up the crematorium chimney!
