About Deep South Focus

While Jon has taken photographs for most of his life, he began creating images in 2008. The panoramic image at the top of this page is the image that started it all for him. He created this image while on vacation on Figure 8 Island near Wilmington, North Carolina. He entered the image in a local photography club's photo contest and it won an award. Jon enjoys architectural, landscape, and automotive photography. In 2020, Jon became a certified FAA Part 107 sUAS Remote Pilot which allows him to legally capture aerial photographs with a small drone.

Jon's current Certifications

  • OPITO-approved Tropical Helicopter Underwater Escape Training with Compressed Air Emergency Breathing System
  • Swing Rope/Personnel Transfer


Not to be outdone, Julie is also an award-winning photographer. She enjoys macro photography and shooting through a range of lenses, such as Lensbaby optics, to add a more artistic flair to her work.

Over the years, Jon and Julie have expanded their skills by taking various photography classes at the University of South Alabama as well as attending numerous photography workshops around the Deep South and even in Canada. They enjoy travel and you will find images on this website that they have captured not only in the United States but also in Canada and New Zealand.
