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.

My Wife Makes Some Lyrical Junk

Permalink to My Wife Makes Some Lyrical Junk By Jonathan | Published February 17, 2017

My wife Rachelle has been hard at work for the past few months on something she’s wanted to do for a very long time: She’s launched her own jewellery and craft business. She’s creating and selling beautiful handmade items straight out of her own imagination. It’s called Lyrical Junk and you can find her website […]

Winter Prairie Moonrise

I was driving down the highway when I was suddenly surrounded by this amazing sky. I knew I wanted a picture but I knew by the time I got to a “good” area the moment would be gone. So I pulled off the road at the first opportunity. It was cold, extremely windy, and I […]

Green Eyed Lady

She’s a lot plumper than her brother, but that doesn’t mean she’s any more likely to sit still for a photo. But it’s kind of fun trying to snag that shallow depth of field shot during those split second pauses.

Monkey

At first glance, he may appear to be a cat. But he’s actually a monkey. A monkey who wonders why I’m pointing that big giant black thing at his face. He’s a good monkey.

Winter Wonder

About once a decade things get really weird and we actually get snow here on the wet coast. That is, snow that sticks around for more than an hour before turning into a soggy, slushy mess. This year we’ve been especially fortunate. We’ve had almost a solid month of this bright, cheery, white winter in […]

Incinerator Rock

This is Incinerator Rock in Tofino, BC and it’s a lot bigger than it looks. Determined to place the island dead centre in my frame, I walked down the beach. And I walked… and I walked… and I walked… Every once in a while I’d stop and get my camera out, thinking for sure I […]

Tofino Afternoon

Tofino is most definitely one of the most beautiful places in Canada. I wouldn’t say the sun shines most of the time, but the feeling is laid back. The beaches are beautiful, and even though palm trees don’t grow, I always think about making my way back.

Tofino Beach Fort

These “log forts” can be found all along the beaches of Tofino and Ucluelet. I’m not sure what their purpose is, but my guess is that they were constructed by surfers to provide a quick escape from the storms that can come out of nowhere… Anybody know?

African Grey Parrot

This guy (or girl, I can’t remember) is one of the resident’s at the Bloedel Floral Conservatory in Vancouver. He’s not as colourful as this yellow bird, but he’s every bit as beautiful. The most annoying thing about birds is their absolute refusal to sit still for more than two seconds at a time…

A Yellow Bird

This is a yellow bird. I am not really sure what kind of yellow bird it is. It looks kind of like a canary, and it was about the size of a canary, but I don’t think it is a canary. In any case, I took its portrait while visiting the Bloedel Floral Conservatory, located […]

Yellowstone River

Permalink to Yellowstone River By Jonathan | Published October 16, 2016

I was so sure I had already posted this one. But today I was searching through my gallery to find some photos for a project I’m working on, and it was nowhere to be found. Overall my photos in Yellowstone were mostly a disappointment to me. I just didn’t have enough time, and I wasn’t […]

Heading Home

Granville Island is a great place to spend an afternoon, but eventually we all have to head home. I think that’s what this guy is doing.
