JONO SEARLE'S BIO
Jono is an editorial, lifestyle and corporate photographer with over 15 years experience, based in Brisbane. He was a photographer for News Corp for over 14 years, after working in Singapore for Reuters Asia. His current clients include AAP, Getty images, and the NRL.
Jono has evolved in step with his fast-changing industry. As well as continuing to cover News and Sport, and backed by his wide experience, he has diversified into Lifestyle, Food, Fashion, and Corporate photography. His editorial background gives him the edge in these forms of image making, meaning he can get the job done promptly, while managing the talent, and meeting client briefs.
Jono has won the PANPA Best Sport Photo of the year in 2008, and a QLD Clarion Best Sport Photo Award in 2014. He has covered many Australian sports, including the Ashes Series, Rugby League World Cup, Socceroos World Cup Qualifiers in Thailand, and dozens of Grand Finals. With this background he hopes to help sporting teams in the future consider generating content for their clubs “in-house” using his services, rather than relying on an outdated system of local media promoting their team.
"The consistent high quality of Jono’s action shots – I’ll never forget his Laura Geitz jubilation shot from the 2015 ANZ Championships grand final – speaks for itself. Where he elevates himself from other shooters is his anticipation, vision and attention to detail. Time and again Jono would suggest talent, themes and locations for pictures, long before there were words to greet them. The result, on every occasion, was an editorial picture that leaped off the page and hauled eyes towards the story. "
