About

I’m Jonas, a visual narrator who harnesses photos to tell stories. I love expressing myself through imagery. But who am I really?

Artisan Soul

As a 10 year-old child, I dreamt of being an artist, choosing to perfect my art assignments over playing computer games. Years later, while I was in the National service, I vividly recall a long-distance phone call with mum about my tertiary education.

Like many parents, her heart’s desire was for me to find a practical, traditional career that would let me make a great living. Putting practicality first, mum discouraged me from pursuing art as a way of life.

So I went to the School of Economics at QUT, naively believing that I was good at crunching number$. However, I clearly wasn’t geared for Economics.   Yet through all of that, I never lost my love for art.

 “Van Gogh’s art was recognised after his death..”

In 2010, I spent all the money I’d saved from working part time on my first DSLR, the Canon 50D. Youtube was my teacher in this artistry called photography. Following my heart, I shot what I loved shooting. Since then, visual storytelling / storytelling through photography has captivated my heart. I’m honoured to learn from some of the industry’s maestros, like Jonas Peterson, who has helped me refine my craft.

Learning an artform is an ongoing journey of discovery that never stops. As Erwin Raphael McManus said, “We are both works of art and artists at work.”

 

Ola! Meet Jonas!

Lover of fashion, gadgets and inspiring quotes. On regular days, Nespresso coffee is my best friend. All I need to unwind from my routine is a couple of games of Settlers of Catan or Monopoly Deal with good mates. But watch out! I can be quite competitive!

I’ve been in Australia since 2009. Besides Brisbane, I lived in Ballina, NSW for quite a number of years and love it like my own home.

I absolutely love my familia who lives overseas, and I can’t be thankful enough for affordable flights and frequent flyer points which make visits possible.

 

The Convergence of Marketing & Photography

Marketing and creativity are two of my passions. My intersecting passions allow me to execute numerous creative ideas and special projects with ease and effectiveness. In the present day, where art and commerce converge, we have to stay relevant. If not, we’ll soon become dinosaurs!

Why do I love weddings?

I enjoy the spontaneity of a wedding day. Every wedding is different and each has many elements to capture. At weddings, I get to exercise the creative creature inside of me in so many different ways, giving me a context for expressing my artisan soul.

Shooting a wedding is a storytelling collaboration between me and my clients. Working together, we tell their unique stories.

I’ve spent over 5 years capturing clients’ wedding stories week in and week out. Each event has taught me that wedding photography is much more than mastering the ‘hero shots’. What matters most is crafting photos with the power to narrate one of life’s most important celebrations for years to come.

 

What’s my most memorable project?

Spending a week in Tuscany, Italy shooting a wedding at Palazzo di Pierro, a castle founded in 1599. Truly magical!
