Hey, I’m Jono. I’m completing my BA (screen) at the Australian Film, Television and Radio School (AFTRS) this year. Knowing from the minute I stepped through those doors what I wanted to do, I found myself being pushed, pulled, and stretched into becoming the best version of myself. My tutor described my work as ‘crisp and edgy’. I like that. I’ll take that. But my style is still evolving, and I wouldn’t want to pigeon-hole myself into a particular style just yet. Experimental, exploratory, and always looking for a new angle – that’s probably closer.
My future focus is clear. There is nothing in this world that draws me in as much as creating great images. I have no choice but to pursue a life behind the lens. There’s nothing quite like getting those goosebumps after capturing something you’re proud of. I’m in, hook, line and sinker. I take inspirations from photographers and painters around the world and I'm continually immersed in studying the works and techniques of the great cinematographers.
