Jon Kerrin

Jon Kerrin is a Cape Town-based photographer specialising in nature imagery, including landscape, astro, wildlife and environmental photography. Jon’s passion for photography was inspired by his love for the outdoors, which grew out of an upbringing exploring the mountains and game parks of South Africa.

He first picked up a camera in 2013 while completing a postgraduate degree in theology and religious studies and soon fell in love with the art of capturing the many forms of nature. Through a gradual transition, Jon moved his career path to one solely focused on nature photography. Along the way, Jon co-founded his tour company, VentureKJ, which specialises in bespoke landscape, astro and wildlife photography workshops across South Africa.

Jon’s passion for outdoor photography extends into his realisation of the need to protect and preserve the natural world. His imagery aims to educate others to see nature as something integral to humanity’s existence and inspire them to act towards better sustainable practices.

Jon has been shooting with Fujifilm for many years now, starting as early as the X-T1, and is well-versed in its broad range of consumer and professional cameras and lenses.
