Photographer - Jonathan Labez

Age: 27
Location: Los Angeles
Years blading: 13
Years shooting: 5
Personal Statement: I’ve learned taking a photo goes beyond letting go of the shutter button. You have to feel the blader and what they’re trying to accomplish. Feeling their vision and figuring out how to translate it into 1000 words represented by a split second moment. It becomes a labor of love culling “the shot”, then sculpting it one edit at time into something remarkable. I want to look at a photo and know I put my all into it just as much as the blader in front of the lens.

Photo Gear

Camera Body: Got one.
Lenses: Got some of those, too.
Lighting Equipment: Got a couple magic boxes that make a bright light.
