Jon Wallace

I am a Internationally Published Photographer Specializing in Motorsports, Action Sports, Lifestyle, Commercial & Product Photography Based in Denver, Colorado.

I was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona where I grew up racing BMX, riding dirt bikes, and playing hockey. In 2008 I moved to Colorado and fell in love with the Rocky Mountains and Photography. After several injuries indefinitely sidelined my bodies ability to handle what it was constantly subjected to I found my self really missing something. I was missing the rush, the thrill of intentionally putting oneself in a high stress, high consequence, split second decision making environment and enjoying every minute of it. I know taking photographs is far from sending a 4th gear jump or playing a tier 1 game, but the similarities to doing them well are inherent. Hiking a 14,000ft mountain at 3:30am in below freezing temperatures with one opportunity to nail the shot with the team/sponsors/manufacture/rider counting on you while dealing with the wrath of Mother Nature and having subjects fly by at 150mph+ really put ones talent, timing, experience, creativity, confidence, skill, problem solving and nerves to the test. And ill tell you what, its one HELL of a rush! That’s why I fell in love with capturing the motion of action sports, specifically motorcycle racing.

These harsh, high pressure work/play environments have given me the wherewithal to shot your products, tell your story, showcase your skill and provide you with epic marketing content when others CAN’T.
