Staff Writer

Jon first arrived at Amateur Photographer in 2012 with an English degree, a few journalism qualifications and an air of general optimism. Starting out in the Features department, he found himself hopping over to Technical and occasionally stopping off at News, also subsequently managing to find a little spare time to moonlight as What Digital Camera’s News Writer. A battered Canon DSLR is his best friend whenever he travels, which is pretty sad when you think about it.

Currently Jon divides his time between working on the magazines’ websites, reviewing books and interviewing photographers, all of which he describes as ‘pretty sweet’. At the office you can spot him as the one with his nose buried in a photo book when he’s supposed to be working. Please tell him to get on with it.
