Jon Reid is a photographer shooting high quality bespoke work with a focus on architecture & interiors.

He left Sydney & his work in media & editorial photography, and the interminable traffic, to move his young family to Newcastle NSW.

In 1992 Jon sailed across the Pacific Ocean from Acapulco to Sydney without vomiting once.

Jon maintains a connection to his editorial past by shooting portraits for magazines such as Art Collector & Smith Journal.

Jon is enthusiastic about cake & cycling, which might seem contradictory to some. The picture above shows what joy can come from poking sticks at goldfish.

Jon is meticulous in his work to create remarkable images. I certainly recommend you speak with Jon about photographing your next project.David Kidston - HACK Architecture
[Jon] can shoot creatively, efficiently and to brief. He can work under the intense time constraints that newspapers present and yet provide calm, simple and memorable images. His professionalism never flags and his photography speaks for itself. James Cottam - Picture Editor
