Welcome to a site dedicated to the works of Jonas Goodwin. I'm him and I encourage you to take some time to explore the glimpses of my life that are scattered throughout these pages. I'll always try to keep things tidy for you, but once in a while you might catch me with the drawers open as I update a page, or try a new design.
I'm a visual thinker, and sometimes those visions just won't sit still. In those cases, I usually find myself either behind the lens looking at something from a different angle, or in front of it bursting with excitement about something I wish everyone could share with me. Either way, I enjoy exploring the nuances of videography and how it can be used to reach others.
As a people, stories define us. Stories of myth and the imagination, stories of experience and life, and stories of new perspectives. I've only just begun to unlock the power of storytelling in my own work, but already I am excited by the possibilities.
Whether through charcoal, pen, or pencil, I have often found that drawing will focus my observations, as well as provides me with a medium for abstract thoughts. Generally my focus revolves around nature or the human form, but I also dabble in the paleontological as well as the realms of fantasy.
Armed with a Canon 60d, A620, and a GoPro Hero, I am able to take high quality photos and HD video both above and below water. I am even competent enough to do so... most of the time.
