Welcome to Jon Kamantigue Photography. I was brought up the Lovers state of Virginia. Originally studying architecture, I soon realized my affinity for photography while picking up my fathers 35mm camera. After receiving my bachelors degree at Virginia Tech, I continued my studies in Commercial photography.
By 2008, I moved to Brooklyn, NY to enter the photography industry by any means necessary working as a photo assistant and gaining the real world experience from world class photographers. I was honing my craft and learning a lot when I got an opportunity to become a Studio Manger an in house photo studio for a major fashion brand.
In 2015, after working in many corporate environments, I decided to venture on my own and become an independent photography professional and entrepreneur. The past few years have been an eye opening experience taking control of my livelihood and following an artist passion.
In my spare time, my girlfriend and I simply like to spend time with our newly puppy Pembroke Welsh Corgi, Nigel Barker..(get it?). I work hard and enjoy a simple life appreciating everything I have been able to accomplish while living in New York.
