Jonathan AKA Jonbob is the man behind the myth. He started the Simple Portrait Project in 2008 almost by accident. What began as an excuse to avoid doing family portraits has become a greatly anticipated tradition serving hundreds of families a year.
Jonbob is a master of portrait making. Though he spends the rest of the year traveling the world drawing out people’s personalities for a wide array of organizations and companies, he looks forward to TSPP each fall. He has an amazing attention to detail and he thrives on the fast paced challenge. Somehow in each 20-minute slot, Jon manages to draw out and capture the unique essence and personality of each family that comes in.
Steve hails from the Rocky Mountains via Colorado Springs where he lives with his wife and 4 children. As his last name may suggest, he and Jonbob share both a childhood and a love for the camera. Steve has over 9 years of experience and is most known for his beautiful work capturing weddings and families as well as documenting projects around the world. We're so glad to have him back for another year!
To be a photographer with The Simple Portrait project you need to be chill, patient, and over the top talented. Jeremy Kramer fits that bill. He made the jump into professional photography in 2009, and in the short time since then, his clients have included Amazon.com, Her Magazine, and OATW, among others. JK was invited to join The Simple Portrait Project because he has a unique gift with the camera, and if you are lucky enough to have Jeremy work with your crew, people who see your photos will think that you have a unique gift with the camera, too.
Tony joins us again this year with his eye for the unique and his desire to do what he does best- what he likes to call “creating moments”. He’s been into photography since the age of 9 when he picked up his first camera. and went on to receive his BFA at Georgetown in 1982. He’s got years under his belt and has honed in on how to capture the unique and beautiful in each moment. He’s a joy to have around and a great addition to the TSPP team. He lives in Cincinnati with his wife, kids, and pups.
