Jonathen E. Davis is a field-tested and award-winning photographer and videographer. Jon’s work has appeared on CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, National Geographic, Outside Magazine, and throughout the Department of Defense. Jon has been perfecting the art of visual storytelling for more than 15 years, combining technical expertise in digital and film with a polished finish.

Jon joined the U.S. Navy as a journalist and worked his way up to the elite rank of Expeditionary Combat Camera. He traveled the world, capturing combat, humanitarian, and disaster relief efforts. Having completed 7 years in the military he left the service to complete a bachelor’s degree in visual journalism from the Brooks Institute, with an internship as a marine mammal identification photographer for the Aquarium of the Pacific. He has since completed a short environmental documentary Fading Stars, which was selected for the Santa Monica Independent Film festival and screened at California State University Long Beach. Later on, he received a master's degree in media and communications from the world famous Academy of Art University in San Francisco. He has also continued to document global disasters for the non-profit organization Team Rubicon.

In addition to documentary film and photography, Jon photographs corporate events and headshots; aerial photography and videography; product photography; real estate photography and 3D interior mapping; and underwater imagery. He is a PADI Master SCUBA Diver Trainer, is wilderness first aid certified, and is a Part 107 FAA certified drone pilot.

Jon is ready for any shoot; anytime, anywhere.

His photos are superior in capturing the work we do. From action shots in the field to business photos in the office, he is able to take the mundane and turn them into something amazing.

Being there for the right moment.

When we deployed Jonathen for photo and video duties, I was always confident in the display of sensitivity he would bring to the communities and our volunteer force.
