Interview – Jonne Johnson vndl April 10, 2013 Interview, Photography VNDL: Describe your work/process. JJ: I don’t have a specific way to edit, my shoots and editing process varies…. I just like to have fun with whatever I do and make an adventure out of my shoots. What have you been up to recently (trips, projects, work)? Well I just got done shooting some work with the model Giza Lagarce for Yume Magazine and it will be in their 5th issue. I just moved to New York a month ago from California and it’s definitely and exciting, interesting, place to be. Favorite Quote? “An artist is not paid for his labor but for his vision.” James Whistler Advice to other creatives/aspiring artists? One thing I really would like to emphasize is network. Meeting and keeping in touch with people is crucial, even if the person isn’t someone you can benefit from they might be a friend of someone who can help you in the future. Always keep meeting people, that is probably 80 percent of what it is to being a photographer. What are you currently listening to/reading/watching? I listen to a lot of upcoming artist from every genre. Probably what I am listening to the most is Taku, Sango, Toro Y Moi, Stevie Crooks, Kendrick Lamar. Shows as of right now are The Walking Dead, Shameless, and House Of Lies. I don’t have much time to sit down and read as of lately but 50 Shades of Gray was the last book I was reading. Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Possibly somewhere in Europe shooting for Gucci or something. It’s kind of hard to predict with this type of career. For all I know, it can happen tomorrow but can also happen years from now. I think that is why I like doing what I do, I don’t know what the outcome will be. It is always a mystery. Who is or where does your inspiration come from? Any emerging artists to watch out for? I get my inspiration from everywhere, people, scenery, music, etc. I would like to say my head is a good portion of it, if I get bored enough, I end up coming up with the most random things. Though for those who don’t know my brother Cameron Davis, he is a great photographer as well and he gives me a lot of inspiration for shoots. I think my work get’s better due to him since I kind of see him as my rival. Jonne Johnson is a photographer based out of Los Angeles & New York City.
