Jon Thrasher, PhotographerCharlotte, NC
After a long and successful career in entertainment and media marketing, in New York, Washington DC and London, working for the likes of MTV and LiveNation, I decided to “reinvent myself” and pursue my life-long passion for photography. And in just a few short years, I have become an award-winning, internationally published portrait photographer, developing my signature style by shooting fashion and editorial photography in New York City. Dividing my time between NYC and Charlotte, I have photographed models, actors, recording artists, fashion designers, business executives and entrepreneurs. And in just the past year, my work has been featured on the covers of seven international fashion and beauty magazines. I love creating beautiful editorial-style images of beautiful people, and creating editorial-style portraits of graduating high school seniors! Today, I am most passionate about photographing “real” people. And I especially love working with people who are not normally comfortable in front of a camera or who don’t think of themselves as “photogenic.” My ability to capture amazing photos of these people is my trademark. My approach to every portrait session is down-to-earth and relaxed, and I am known for putting people at ease with humor. I describe my sessions as casual conversations in the studio that just happen to involve a camera. In other words, we will probably talk more than we shoot. But I am confident in my ability to create beautiful images of anyone. And my clients love the results of our time together and frequently comment about how comfortable they felt working with me.
