About me

First thoughts on new copy… another unedited look inside my head….


I have been a photographer all of my adult life. I studied it at art collage then spent the many years assisting numerous photographs, mainly celeb and advertising portrait and lifestyle photographers. I have seen and done may things both in studios and on location. It’s been an amazing career so far and it keeps getting better. If you want to know a little more about where I have been, have a look at this post.


Now I’m into a slightly calmer part of my life which suites me very much as I have a little girl who I try and take care of as much as possible. I consider myself to be a freelance photographer and freelance dad. It’s an interesting juggling act that my wife and I are getting the hang of. Just.


Wether it’s a 15 minut portrait or a prelight day before the actual shoot, I believe in putting everything I have got into whatever I’m doing. It can be pretty knackering but it’s worth it. Sometimes a vast amount of that effort is in making it look and seem effortless. But that’s all part of the fun. And I do really love what I do.


Old text...


My name is Jon Holloway. I am a photographer and creative/visual problem-solver with over ten years experience, and I love what I do.

Past clients range from national and international brands to arts organisations and start-ups, including Nickelodeon, Inmarsat (satellite navigations), LAMDA, McCann Bespoke Tailors and Immerse. I have taken portraits of Sir Ian McKellen, Ricky Gervais and Game of Thrones' Hayley Atwell and Iain Glen. My photos have appeared in The Independent and Conde Nast Traveler, amongst other publications.

I enjoy working on all scales of project, and thrive on collaboration, exchanging ideas and pushing creative boundaries. I do everything possible to understand my clients’ needs and the context of the project at hand, and then I tailor a shoot to fulfil the needs of the project, whilst remaining within budget and meeting deadlines.

You can find more information about rates on my contact page. Please take a look.
