Jon Jones, Dallas Member Since August 2009 Artist Statement I have been taking pictures since childhood, visually exploring “life’s moments.” Having the opportunity to shoot for many friends and clients over the years with various needs gave me a chance to discover that “unique angle”... with the desire to not just deliver a photo, but to tell the story with that image.
It seems like I have always had a camera in my hands (23+ years of experience!) starting a Kodak Disk 4000 camera, then on to my first 35mm SLR film camera; a Minolta Maxxum 7000 in 1987. I then progressed into the digital age with a Sony Cybershot H50, and now currently shooting with a Canon 50D.
My new website is jonmartinimages.com This aspiring website will spur my first attempt at freelance work, brought on by my first formal training, a college level class in the spring of 2010 at North Lake College. I hope to be able to look back and tell myself... "Wow, I had some pretty good skills and a good eye for it," but I also would like this to be the beginning of new and improved skills, techniques and angles.
I have constantly aspired to follow my heart through my photography... and hope to continue to have a camera in my hand for many years to come.
