Leica Portraits – Jonathan Mannion

It’s been awhile since we published a video from our very popular Leica series. Hopefully this one will get us back on track. This video features Cleveland, Ohio native Jonathan Mannion, who began capturing images of up-and-coming urban music superstars after working for a year with world-renowned photographer Richard Avedon. In 1996, he launched his professional career by shooting the photographs for the classic hip-hop album “Reasonable Doubt” by Jay-Z. Since then he has gone on to capture a who’s who in music, celebrity and sports. In this video Jonathan gives us a little insight into his process as well as some advice for future shutterbugs who want to be like him.
