Interview with Jon Davatz

Posted by Anna Fraser

Hi Jon! Tell us about yourself in two sentences - who are you?

I started taking photos a few years ago with my smartphone. Initially I just took a few occasional pictures. After reaching some limits with the mobile phone, I decided to buy a Nikon DSLR camera. That was the defining moment, when photography became a passionate mission to capture the 'joie de vivre' of Southern California's beach communities for me.

QWhat's the weirdest situation you've found yourself in while taking a photograph?

AIt was the day when I took images of a lifeguard tower. To get the POV I wanted, I had to lay down on the floor. A very nice elderly man and his wife stopped by and asked "young man, are you all right?!".... worrying about my well-being.

QWhat do you shoot on? What's your favourite set up?

AMy standard gear is my Nikon D5300, 18-55mm and 55-300mm kit lens. The lens I use the most is the 55-300mm as I love to capture wildlife and action photos of surfers. I am also known for my vintage car and (beach) street photography, for which I mostly use my 18-55mm lens.

QWhat's your number one tip for an aspiring photographer?

AMy number one tip is to experiment as much as you can and to not be discouraged. Share your images with peers on social sharing sites and learn from others. Remember Henri Cartier-Bresson's quotation: 'Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst'. Maybe try starting with a mobile device and gradually upgrading your gear and your post processing software, that's how I did it.

I have two favourite images, the first is 'The Barrel', where I captured the perfect moment of a surfer, with all his emotions, riding the perfect wave.

One morning I didn't have the motivation going out to shoot photos, but an inner voice guided me to go to the San Clemente (California) pier where I spend a lot of my time. I stumbled upon a surfer's memorial service, which was very emotional. Read less

My favorite location, the pier in San Clemente, California, is a favorite spot for surfers. I saw this 'parked' surfboard and took advantage, shooting a few photos.

I love taking action shots, especially of the local surfing community. This was also taken in San Clemente, California. I usually pick the one or two surfers with the most action and try not to miss any moves. I chose this one in particular due to the bright red surfboard and his great surfing skills. Read less
