Jonathan Thorpe is no stranger to SCU. "Forever Alone," his shot of Cupid, sitting by himself at the bar and out of arrows, is one my most favorite images. I haven't shared the behind the scenes video in a few years, and with today being Valentine's Day it's time to bring it back.
I met Jonathan thanks to Tamron USA several years ago. He's a Tamron Image Master, and I've shared a number of his images, including an episode of "Why?" last year. Jonathan is the ultimate storyteller, packing an entire story into just one photograph!
One of the things I appreciate most about Jonathan, besides his skill set as an artist, is the way he fulfills his mind's eye visions. Take the time to watch this short BTS video and then put Jonathan and Tamron on your radar. Click on the image above to visit Jonathan's website and see more of his work.
Check out "Why?" one of the most popular features on the SCU Blog. It's a very simple concept - one image, one artist and one short sound bite. Each artist shares what makes the image one of their most favorite. We're over 100 artists featured since the project started.
