About Jonathan Pow, Photographer
How it all started
I’m a commercial and editorial photographer based in Manchester, North of England. I’ve spent all of my working life up North. It all started when I escaped from my native Devon, to the green pastures of North Lincolnshire, way back in 2005.
I started working for a busy local daily newspaper as a press photographer in 2005. Then moved to a press agency a few years later. I worked on daily assignments for national newspapers and magazines. Since jumping ship in 2012, I been working as a freelance photographer and have taken on quite a few new challenges.

Favourite photo jobs
I am bloody awful at selling myself, but I have worked on some pretty cool jobs over the years.
This includes: Photographing mountaineers for the legendary PHD Mountain Software (who make expedition clothing) right here in Greater Manchester // Creating images for talented lingerie designer Christina Forte at a beautiful house in Ealing, London // Filming the amazing pole dancer Bendy Kate in Sheffield and Harrogate for her showreel, you see her on my Performance Photographer page // Accidentally upsetting John Prescott, causing him to show me his V-type, on a job for the Daily Mirror newspaper in Hull.
As well as being a professional photographer: I pride myself on writing in the first person. Love mountain biking and cycling. Head bang to heavy metal. Love travel to new places.
