Day Two hundred eight:

Jonathan, Balboa Park, San Diego…

He may look like a photographic intimidator but don’t let that fool you — he’s one of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet.

Husband to Callie.

Father to Five.

Jonathan Canlas is on a meteoric rise through the business.

Check out his website and his blog.  He’s one of the most diligent bloggers I know and sharing work that is meaningful and personal  as well as work he does for his clients (and THAT work, too, is meaningful and personal — which is the real art to living).

His work has a consistent feel and gentle beauty about it.  He loves photography — he lives it and breaths it  — and it shows.

One of the things that I like most about Jonathan is his honesty which is reflected in his work.  It represents him, what he believes about photography and about marriage and family.

He is doing things that go against the tide in the modern photo industrial complex and because of that he’s gained a large following; folks that want to feed off his inspirational energy.

I’m so glad that he photographed our family today as part of his Film Is Not Dead Workshop, but it was even better just to see him and catch up and feed off that inspirational energy myself.
