Welcome to Jonathan T. Photography
With his pictures, he tells a story of one thousand words.
With his ‘words’, he dedicates his passion to Mother Nature.
Jonathan lives and breathes photography. In awe of her mighty beauty, he yearns to explore the serenity and calmness for all it has to offer. There are more to nature than what people normally see, and he is determined to capture those unseen pictures and share it with the world. He wants the world to experience what he sees and feels behind the camera.
As a budding photographer in his teens, Jonathan diligently honed his skills - click by click, picture by picture. Sandakan offers a modest start yet rich in panoramic views. Over the years his passion grew while studying in Australia. At the country’s best natural settings, he collected multitude of shades of photographic sceneries. It was a matter of time that Jonathan was unstoppable as he pursued his photographic journey to bigger lands like Europe and America.
Jonathan is best known as a perfectionist extraordinaire. He revels in pushing himself beyond his limit. When it comes to capturing the perfect shot, there is no such thing as boundary. If it involves him to scale the highest peak or wade through dangerous waters, or even fly in borderless sky to get the shot, he will do it.
Jonathan’s desire in seeking the ultimate shot is fueled by his thirst for more ethereal pictures that are yet to be discovered. Several adventures and plenty of camera shots later, Jonathan is making his mark in the world of nature and landscape photography. With multiple on-going projects recently launched in 2012, and his best images being published in Asian photography magazines, Jonathan is certainly on his way to frame the best shot of his life.
Jonathan resides in Sandakan, Sabah and when he does not work with his camera or travel, he can be found tackling opponents on the rugby field at his hometown, or inspiring youths in workshops to achieve their dreams.

In line of his artistic venture is a local production TV series titled “Fly : Land Below the Wind”. An Astro BIO CHANNEL documentary in motion, “Fly : Land Below the Wind” showcases the journey of two local photographers, Jonathan Tan and Cede Prudente, traveling over the landscapes of Borneo on paramotors to capture aerial shots and moving images that once belong exclusively to the Gods and air-borne creatures. Never before seen moving images of the aerial view of the Mount Kinabalu are just one of the delectable shots taken by this adventurous duo.
