Born in Charlton, south London, Jonty’s first camera was given to him at a young age by his Grandfather. As soon as Jonty finished school he started assisting fashion photographers.
After moving to New York to freelance at the age of 21, he took a full time assistant position along-side Pamela Hanson in Paris. After 6 years he went out on his own, moving back to New York where he stayed for 12 years.
An Englishman living in New York, Jonty established himself as a high roller early on in his career, by shooting for the likes of W Magazine, German Vogue, and Interview, where he also shot campaigns for Victoria’s Secret, Escada, Oscar De La Renta and Sonia Rykiel, to name a few – Jonty has positioned himself at an international level. He moved back to his native country and whilst maintaining his New York clients, he has continued his success both commercially and editorially in Europe. Jonty has also recently undertaken moving image projects to compliment his stills...
His positive energy and enthusiasm for every commission he undertakes extends through to his print work. His beautifully composed lens-work captures shapes, shadows and movement which people have come to recognise as Jonty’s trademark. Jonty lives in London.
