Jonathan Robert Willis or JONBOB (for those who dare)

Jonbob is a recovering punk rocker,  father of three, and recieved the better end of the deal when he married is smoking hot wife.    He jumps from city to city and country to country—wandering down stories,  building makeshift studios, and hunting dynamic life in dynamic light.  Patient but direct when in the studio or field,  Jonathan’s got a trademark style of juxtaposing the ordinary with the offbeat and a reputation for being super down-to-earth and a born (humble) creative. Whether he’s shooting portraits of sinners, saints, doctors, rockers, blue collars or white, his approach is the same: find the balance between too little and too much.  Find parameters to force creativity. Its with a looking-glass take on time and good judgment, he sets himself apart.
