Born in the small town of Gold River, Jon Lake grew up surrounded by nature and supported by a tight-knit community. At a young age he developed a passion for mountain biking which soon evolved into a passion for sports photography.
Jon moved to Victoria to study at the Western Academy of Photography. There, interaction with a wide variety of unique photographers honed his skills and motivated him to continue pursuing his dream. After earning his diploma, Jon started his second diploma program in Advanced Visual Communications, but was forced to leave early due to unexpected medical issues.
After recovering, Jon began his career as a freelance photographer in Victoria. He has since worked with a wide variety of clients and projects, including everything from maternity shoots to stage shows with platinum recording artists.
Of his work, he says “My aim is to show something that might easily be overlooked. Capturing a subject’s emotion to me is huge, which is why I tend to try and focus attention on the subjects eyes. I feel the eyes tell a great deal about a person.”
Jon enjoys working on all sorts of projects, big or small. Contact him to set up a consultation.
