More about Jon M....
What do you love about your job?
I love the challenge the job can sometimes present, from shooting a beauty image to shooting products. Designing light setups to bring out the best in the product and talking to the talent to bring out the best in them. It allows me to travel, and meet people from all walks of life and I get to learn bout their culture and foods (favorite) and see some of the world's most beautiful places.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
Currently, I'm shooting expensive clothes and they have to look expensive, the customer must feel they want to buy the items from an online presentation. This is achieved by lighting the scene properly.
