Jonathan Betz Photography
Before becoming business partners, Jonathan and Lindsay Betz fell in love in the shadow of the St. Louis Arch. When they first met, John was just beginning a photography career while volunteering as a firefighter and Lindsay was a music therapist serving children with special needs. After their marriage, they both agreed that the perfect backdrop for their new life together needed more mountains and fewer geometry-inspired landmarks, so they went on road trips to find the perfect place to build a home and raise a family. They eventually landed in Colorado Springs, where their two children now frolic through grassy fields while Jonathan snaps photos amid the Rockies.
A member of the Professional Photographers of America, Jonathan's work has graced the pages of the New York Times. When he isn't capturing the candid smiles of high school seniors or families, or chronicling the happiest moments at weddings, he stays busy in the lab, retouching each image he captures to ensure that all colors are balanced and all Waldos are accounted for. He also hosts four-week, six-week, and one-day workshops, during which he fills students in on fundamental skills, image editing, and how to turn a photography hobby into a business.
