Jonathan Lee is a professional photographer who has traveled the world taking photos and through them telling amazing stories.  In doing this he often supports social enterprises and other great causes.  In this interview we talk about his early life in Hong Kong, immigrating to the United States as a child, what formed him and gave him a sense of direction, his involvement in the Beacon Food Forest, a community-driven food-producing garden and forest in the city, work in Nepal after the earthquakes and his views about photography as a form of art and what makes capturing moments in time through photos so special.

Jonathan is working out of the Ministry of Awesome in Christchurch and recently posted this about his plans:

"Here's where you could help me continue this adventure. If you yourself, friend(s), family member(s), coworker(s), or business/organization(s), whether locally in CHCH, Aotearoa-NZ, or aboard in other awesome corners of the globe, could benefit from my creative eye and/or photo/videographic services to capture a moment, an event, and/or tell stories -- especially for socially and environmentally-GOOD causes -- please reach out and connect/discuss with me! Example: event documentation, farm, wedding, restaurant promo, portrait session, crowdfunding video, etc. Holy cow, there are so many possibilities! I love collaborations also."
