Tamron's Image Masters are one of the most diverse groups of artists in our industry. Well, it's Tamron Tuesday and this one is a kick to share, since Jonathan Thorpe has been featured on the SCU site a few times. Check out his guest post on the importance of special projects, his podcast and a behind the scenes video on one of my favorite images, Forever Alone, shown below.
His description on the Image Masters home page demonstrates how quickly he's established himself as an artist.
Jonathan started taking pictures in 2009, when he received a point and shoot camera as a christmas present. The week after he went to a local hip hop show, took some photos of the artist, and emailed them to him the next day. A month later those same photos were used in a 3 page spread article about the artist, and that started his photo career.
By using his unmistakable style of lighting and storytelling, Jonathan has worked with some of the biggest companies in the world, has had multiple national and international publishings, and photographed award winning musicians and celebrities. In addition to commercials, Jonathan has also directed several music videos.
Take the time to visit Jonathan's site and you'll see why it was so hard for me to just pick a few of my favorites. From portraits to editorial to the whimsical quirkiness of his special projects, there's a signature of quality and creativity in every image.
Check out his website and blog and follow him on Twitter.
