Documentary & Portrait Photographer
Jon’s late Father once said to him, “Behind every door is a different story”. He has since taken that statement with him through his life and photographic career. Jon now divides his time between Berlin and London, shooting fashion and portrait, together with films for clients ranging from magazines to advertising agencies.
Having learned his trade working in London’s legendary Click Studios, Jon began his journey into photography and filmmaking. Inspired by his early love of cinema and tales of outsiders, Jon has embraced story telling through his work. Jon has a passion for people and their experiences and it is partly this that has pushed him forward to photograph such diverse subjects as The Mods, Fishermen, Racing Drivers, Chefs, Artists, Actors and even volunteers of Living Museums across the globe. Jon works in both portraiture and fashion and loves to work with both the stories of his subjects and those of his imagination.
Jon Mortimer works for editorials, advertising agencies, brands of all sizes and publishing houses. Jon’s first book, Modernist Revival, was published by Café Royal Books with the first print run selling out in a week. The 2nd print run and his box set of prints from the series are currently available. Jon’s 2nd book, Le Mans Classic – Just Waiting… is due for publication later this year.
