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.
Hi, I'm Jessica and I'm a Louisville-based photographer specializing in editorial and commercial photography. My work has appeared in The New York Times, USA Today, The Washington Post and dozens of other publications, and my pictures have been recognized by the Best of Photojournalism competition, Associated Press Media Editors, the California Newspaper Publishers Association and the Nevada Press Association. I love shooting a variety of subjects but portraiture being my passion. Please feel free to send me a line, even if it's just to say hello.
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!
