Jonathan Thorpe is a cinematic photographer whose technical ability to light and direct a story rings true in the images he produces. His approach drums emotion, yet maintains a level of verisimilitude in the form of "Hyper Realistic" portraiture. Since switching to photography in 2008 from a profession in optometry, Jonathan shoots full-time nationally and local to his home in Washington D.C. In addition to being an Interfit Platinum Creative Pro, he is currently sponsored by Tamron lenses and Holdfast Gear, and represented by Wonderful Machine in Philadelphia. Alongside his photography, Jonathan teaches and lectures around the world helping other photographers grow confident in their careers and forays into photography.
