Jonathan is an award-winning freelance film director and director of photography based in Hong Kong and France.
One of the best and most rewarding films I've had the privilege of making. I directed and filmed it over 6 weeks in Pakistan and about 6 days in Cambodia.
Self-employed since 2001, Jonathan is a British award-winning film director and director of photography based in France and Hong Kong.
Brought up in Yorkshire and educated in the UK, professional life followed art college in London.
Since moving to Asia 27 years ago the world opened up. Hanging out of helicopters in Sumatra, filming with nomads in Tibet, rescuing elephants from Pakistan and wandering through the Taklimakan desert in search of Marco Polo’s legacy are just some of the adventures that have presented themselves in the course of the ordinary day job. So, it’s no surprise that filming in wild places in difficult situations are considered his specialty for the likes of National Geographic.
As we all know, technology has revolutionized the film industry and Jonathan realized he needed to evolve to stay competitive. So becoming a skilled editor and cinematographer was a natural evolution and has, as importantly, increased his enjoyment of the craft of filmmaking
