COMPANY PROFILE

My job is to tell stories. My tool for telling them is the camera. Which is funny, because the best stories always happen in the moments when people forget that I am holding a camera. Those moments aren’t a matter of magic or alchemy: They’re created by instinctively knowing where to be and what to do in order to be invisibly present in exactly the right spot at precisely the right time. Even on the most expansive projects, I bring only the gear absolutely needed, keeping my presence and the crew small. When the shoot starts, we’re in subtly choreographed and constant motion, playing with angles, jockeying for new perspectives. All the while, the story is there. And in the midst of all that intense activity, those moments that speak volumes reveal themselves. Sometimes gradually, sometimes all at once, and when they do, it’s as if the camera’s not even there. Inspiration comes from collaboration. I am probably guilty of having too many irons in the fire, but I think it actually keeps me inspired, and keeps me from burning out. I love to shoot. Clients who love my work range in size and scope, but favorite projects include names such as Apple, Samsung, and Purina. They also include everyday people like Bill Holm, a poetic man with visuals and a story richer than the biggest brand production could ever entail.

Testimonial:

Photography Supervisor, Creative Services, Angie D’Angelo at McDonald’s Corporation:

Working with Jonathan Chapman and his team was truly a pleasure. From beginning to end, his team made the process simple and easy. In my working day simple and easy is exactly what I strive for while, at the same time, not losing sight of or compromising the end results. From the first phone call to the delivery of the final product, the process was very professional, netting out beautiful imagery. JCP has an eye for capturing a perfect “in the moment” image, while continuing to capture the true essence of our brand. JCP has raised the bar of photography.
