Jonathan Adams is a 1993 graduate of Western Kentucky University’s Photojournalism program and gained experience working at newspapers in Michigan, New York, Maine and Wyoming. He is the former chief photographer at the Jackson Hole Guide in Jackson Wyoming where he gained an appreciation for small town journalism and big national park mountains.
In 1999 he quit his job to spend a year traveling around the world photographing as he toured through 23 countries. Since then, his passion for traveling has taken him on many more extended journeys around the globe as a photographer.
Searching for a better balance in work and travel, he has spent the last 10 years running his photography business focused in wedding, editorial and commercial photography.
He earned his Masters in Visual Communication at Ohio University with the goal of teaching photography at a college level during this next stage in his photographic career.
For the past two years he has taught in the photojournalism program at Western Kentucky University as a Photojournalist-in-Residence and has organized the Video Storytelling portion of the Mountain Workshops for six years.
While not teaching, he often lives in his cabin in eastern Kentucky.
