About


Jonathan Rawle is a commercial photographer with special skill at capturing images of people’s power, feelings, range, poetry or joys. His images help you see the value of people. And properties, products because he approaches client projects with a positive outlook.

When shooting for corporations big and small he digs for those images that will accelerate business, inform customers, and create excitement about services or products. Is your company delivering a service? Jonathan can illustrate its benefits to your customers and prospects. He also writes marketing materials and advises companies on most aspects of marketing communications.

A twenty-year photojournalist, advertising, corporate, and commercial photographer in Boston, Jonathan grew his business into a small marketing communications agency. Consulting to imaging companies followed: trends and information to help them navigate a fast-changing now-digital, photography market. He loved being in a shifting industry landscape, speaking at Seybold and other industry venues, sizing markets, and writing case studies to illustrate and quantify market shifts.

Jonathan also held Marketing Communications and Business Development positions in digital asset management and short-run database-driven printing startups.

In a sharp turn off this track, Jonathan dove into public school teaching in 2001 earning at night a Masters of Education at Cambridge College. He moved with his family to the Big Island of Hawaii in 2004 and continued to teach, hired to be a classroom teacher to several different age students in his small town’s public elementary school. This picture was taken by one of his Kindergarten keiki (Hawaiian for “children” or “schoolchildren”).

Now in Seattle, Washington, he’s been shooting full time again for several years… Loving it.
