Hi my name is Jon Stanley owner and main photographer at Jon Stanley Photography.
I just wanted to write a short bio so you know a bit more about me. I never set out or had any aspirations to become a photographer from a young age apart from the odd playing with my dad’s old Polaroid now and again, I kind of fell into it. It’s a long story that I won’t go into but only recently have I discovered an artistic background to my family on both my Father and Mothers side, so I guess the talent has always been there.
Ok I’m a laid back kind of person, who just loves what I do for a living, possibly the best job in the world. I love reading books and blogs, meditation and EFT and I’m also trying to get my head around gardening. I’m a married guy, and you might meet my wife Bella at your wedding or perhaps an event as from time to time she helps me out. So I have first hand
experience in planning a wedding and being a groom, been there done that and learnt from the experience. No children as of yet but hopefully one day soon. I live in Tewkesbury, but travel everyday back to my office in Charlton Kings, Cheltenham.
I have been a photographer for over 10 years now, so I have a lot of experience, I worked for another photographer and received a lot of training from him, so when he retired in 2005 I took over the business and over time I have tweaked and changed things and put my stamp as well as my name to the business. I love meeting and speaking to people, but during a wedding I don’t want to be the centre of attention, I just like to sit back do my job and provide photographs that I know you are going to love, in a calm relaxed manner. I apply the calm and relaxed moniker to all the photography projects I undertake from event photographer & portraits to commercial work. I am happy to travel anywhere in the UK or indeed the world to photograph what ever you want me to.
I’m not trying to sell you photography at any point, I am just trying to put across my passion for photography and the job that I do for a living and I hope that this becomes infectious and will make you want to book me to photograph your wedding, event, portrait or commercial project for you.
