Jon Norris is an environmental portrait/street photographer from Rockville, Maryland right outside Washington DC.

Through a mix of evocative colors and distinctive black and white environmental portraits/street photographs, Jon’s work focuses on documenting the unsaid energy of the streets and highlighting people in their natural environment. 

As described by poet and peace activist Thich Nhat Hanh, "Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don't even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child—our own two eyes. All is a miracle.” 


Jon launced his career after working as first assistant to Vogue Thailand and U.S. Correspondent to GQ Thailand, Mitchell Nguyen Mccormack. While assisting Mr. Mccormack, Jon also photographed celebrities and top models for Destin Asia Media Group.

Now 24, Jon spends his time traveling between his hometown and working overseas where he is currently self-producing, photographing, and creating personal projects close to his heart.

Jon's work has been featured by Entrepreneur Magazine, American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), Lecia Cameras, AFI Film Festival, Destin Asia Media Group, Vulkan Magazine, & Bethesda Magazine.
