Jon has been interested in making films for over 30 years. His career took a slight turn in the 1990’s when he became a private pilot, and eventually earned his ratings to become a corporate pilot. When camera technology became digital, Jon took up film making again when he wasn’t flying. He began making corporate videos for MartinAir in Richmond, VA and then making education videos known as the Captain Jon series when he moved to South Florida in 2002. This led to making television commercials for companies such as Braman Motor Cars (Addy Award Winner 2007), Lion Country Safari and
Bennett Auto Supply. Jon began to film with the Red Camera in 2008, which was one of the first 1,000 Red cameras to be sold in the world. In 2009, Jon’s work for Cinematic Stock Footage was also featured on the cover of DV Magazine for a new style of “pre-keyed” high quality, green screen footage, which continues to be sold online today.
After making serval local and national commercials in South Florida, Jon was approached to work as Director of Photography on indy films such as USS Seaviper (2012), Hollow Creek (2016), Shadow Fighter (2016) and soon to be released Swiped (2017). In 2016, Jon had the amazing opportunity to be Director of Photography for 2 movies for Concord Films, Boyfriend Killer (premiered January 2017 on Lifetime and Lifetime Movie Network) and Girlfriend Killer (to be released later in 2017). Jon also continues to fly as a corporate pilot for NetJets.
