Hi, I'm Jon. I teach the classes and camps. Here's some things to know about me;
I grew up in Chicago and studied photography and cinematography at Columbia College. I moved to Austin in 2010. I also a substitute teacher throughout the year. I am married to my favorite person and we have 2 kids, Charlie and June. As a stay-at-home Dad for 4 years, I began trying to find children's photography classes in Austin and discovered they did not exist. Theses classes are as much fun for me as they are for my students. What I enjoy most about teaching photography to children is watching a child see life through the camera. Putting a camera in a child's hand is a game changer. Everything fades away and they just focus on taking the photo. Photography can be a very self gratifying art form and can bring a lot of confidence to a young mind. It is my goal to promote and encourage that confidence in every child that walks through the door.
