Biography

Jonathan Sau’s fine art photography covers natural and urban landscape, floral, close-up and still-life. His work has won awards at national photography competitions, and has been accepted for exhibition at international photography salon, local photographic art events, and juried art shows.

Jonathan Sau is a Canadian Association for Photographic Art (CAPA) certified judge.

“I take lots of photographs. Some images capture beauty, others tell stories. Some convey moods, a few make you think. And sometimes, it’s all of the above. Photography encourages me to study my environment and portray it in different ways – find the image among clutter, take a different perspective, and experiment with creative techniques. It can be hard work, but also hugely rewarding – when a photograph turns out just the way I want it, and show my audience the world through my lens.”
