JY Visuals is the way that I (Jon Young) see the world. Six years ago I picked a film camera out of my parents attic and today I can’t believe it: I get to take pictures, help others, and I’m excited everyday about the work that I’m doing.
Of course there have been some detours; I was almost a product designer, and then a mechanical engineer, and yes even a philosophy major (mmhm), but I made it through. I fell in love with people and their stories and with photography and graduated with my Bachelors in Photojournalism from UNC Chapel Hill.
I believe in investing in people and their potential in life, so when I’m not holding a camera, I work with the Community Empowerment Fund, a non-profit that I helped to start back when I was a student. I’m thrilled that my photography enables me to continue my efforts to grow and build the community around me.
Contact me, I’d love to get to know you.
