Bio

Hello, I’m Jonathan. Welcome to In the Limelight, my little slice of the web. Here I showcase my photography and blog about creativity, travel, and personal development. I also offer various creative services.

I live in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia with the love of my life, Rachelle. When I am not taking pictures or geeking out at my computer I enjoy cycling, cooking and reading novels until the wee hours of the morning.

In 2013 I participated in The Ride to Conquer Cancer and cycled from Vancouver to Seattle. Together with my team we raised over $500,000 dollars for cancer research.

I am always looking to connect with other like-minded people.

While we were visiting Chichen Itza, our guide would frequently lament that the Mexican government “didn’t care”. I got the impression that this was a broad statement that could apply to a lot of things [...]

The Red Door Building

One of the problems with digging up several years old photos and publishing them is that sometimes you can’t remember where you took them. Like this one for instance. I know it’s somewhere in Vancouver, [...]

Beautiful Life

A few years ago I was wandering through Vancouver’s Gastown neighbourhood and I came across this building. Of course I had seen this building many times before, but at that time an interesting business had [...]

Deep Green Sea

It’s hard for me to imagine not living near the ocean. I have grown up near the deep blue sea, it’s something very familiar to me. Every time I have ever considered moving away from [...]

Seafaring Vagabond

I am always fascinated by backpackers, especially when they are travelling alone. I always wonder where they are going and where they have been. More than that, I wonder why they are travelling? And then [...]

Coming Out Of the Closet

A note: To get the most from this article, you really need to click the links and watch the video. I know that takes up time, but honestly, if you’re reading this already, you probably [...]

My good friend and client Monny recently asked me to take some photos of his designer eyewear store for publication in a magazine. The magazine had requested photos of the store itself and “action” shots [...]

Abandoned Shed In Sandon

What might be stored in this old shed in the creepy ghost town of Sandon? I’m not sure but I my imagination is was certainly running wild when I was there. Sandon, British Columbia, Canada.

Sunset In Port Townsend (Again)

I tell you what, that sunset in Port Townsend seemed to just last forever and ever. I managed to take three very different shots of the same sunset from three different locations and I think [...]

Sunset In Port Townsend

Were it not for the incredibly overzealous and rude customs agents employed at the U.S. border (am I on an NSA watch-list now?) I would without a doubt consider visiting Port Townsend more often. It’s [...]
