Jon Flowers is a street and portrait photographer based in Toronto, Canada. We met when we were in high school and I’ve seen him pursue the art of photography now as a professional photographer full time. It’s been extremely inspiring and motivating to see him take the plunge and throw himself 100% into his craft and business. He’s extremely positive, introspective and always raises up the people around him.
