My cinematography and filmmaking arise out of a passion to appreciate the experiences that shape our lives, both the mundane and the incredible. No matter how hard one may try on their own, every moment has the potential to be forgotten. Through thoughtfulness, insight, and poetic expression, I speak into memory. I am available for video production, filmmaking, and cinematography for small businesses, non-profits, causes, adventures, and artists. Based in Portland, Oregon. Available for travel worldwide. Images are captured in 4k UHD for gorgeous detail.
I hired Jonathan to make a promotional video for my business, and instead, he gave me something much better: a tangible, emotionally-connecting piece of brand poetry. Jonathan took my concept and utterly transformed it, to the point where I cried when I saw the first draft–it immediately connected all the pieces of nature and people and language and made it WORK. It’s a story, not a drab statement ending with “hire me!”. Jonathan took the time to truly understand the feeling I wanted to evoke, and it’s exponentially better than I could have ever dreamed. I can’t recommend him enough.
I worked with Jonathan on a project to honor our Employee’s of the Year around the Portland/Vancouver area for our company. He did such and amazing job capturing these folks personalities and making them feel at ease being on camera. It was such an amazing experience and all 8 videos were shown at our large Employee Appreciation Party and they were beautiful. There was laughter, tears and awe from everyone watching. Thank you Jonathan for being such a joy to work with and highlighting these well deserved employees in the best way possible. I truly look forward to working with you again!
An incredibly responsive and accommodating team. I had the pleasure of working with them as part of the Champagne Ball team and the quality of work has exceeded expectations. I would definitely recommend consulting them about any video content projects.
As an artist, Jonathan brings curiosity, expertise, and a collaborative spirit to every project he takes on. From weddings to editorial shoots to commercial projects, his approach is that of documentarian, a guide, and a friend all wrapped into one.
