Photography takes an instant out of time; altering life by holding it still. Jon Lake has always been fascinated by this concept; at a young age he would capture his friends as they shot by on their Mountain Bikes, BMX’s and Skateboards -effectively freezing them in contorted poses before they hit the ground or landed a jump. He took his passion to Victoria B.C., where he enrolled in the Western Academy of Photography. Soon after graduating he began to diversify his skills and began capturing musical events and musicians. His free-spirited and easy going nature is often mirrored in his deeply moving portraits, as his goal is to “make the viewer feel that they are sharing the moment with the subject.”
Jon currently resides in Victoria B.C., and is available for travel throughout BC and the Pacific North West.
“My husband and I recently had the pleasure of working with Jon Lake as he shot for our beautiful wedding in August; not only did he make us feel comfortable, he totally understood what my husband and I were looking for in a photographer for our big day. He was laid back but professional, encouraging but not demanding and he has an insanely talented eye that allowed us to get some pretty unique shots. Jon was able to capture the emotion and excitement of our big day and totally delivered when I saw all the photos. I could not have asked for anything more and will totally recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer in the future. Not only did he exceed expectations on our big day he had photo edits to me within the week!”
“Jon Lake is one of the best concert photographers I’ve ever seen. He has taken my band Ellice Blackout’s promotional shots to the next level. Having fantastic photography is essential for live acts in order to show new fans what they are in store when they come out to a show. I would highly recommend Jon to anyone wanting the most dynamic, bad ass photos in the game.”
“I have had the privilege of working with Jon several times over the past five years, and though I have worked with many photographers, he has always stood out from the crowd. No matter how little time I give him to prepare for a shoot, from a few days to sometimes a few minutes, he always comes up with fresh ideas and beautiful concepts. Even though I am not a professional model by any means, Jon always goes out of his way to make me feel comfortable and confident, resulting in amazing photos that I will be able to look back on forever.
I always know when I work with Jon I am going to have a wonderful experience, followed by a fantastic result.”
