Hi, I'm Jonathan Maurer
Thank you for coming to the website! I am a Camera Assistant, Airstar Balloon Tech and hobbyist photographer from Fernandina Beach, Florida. I currently live in Los Angeles, and work across a variety of non-union music videos, commercials, and narrative projects.
I'm originally from Fernandina Beach, Florida, a small beach town tucked in the northeast corner of the state. I moved to Orlando in 2018 to go to Full Sail University and focused my studies between grip & electric and camera departments. After a mid-pandemic graduation in May 2020, I worked in the greater Orlando area for a year as a camera assistant, before moving to Los Angeles in June 2021.
I worked full-time at Production Gear Rentals as as an driver/prep tech, while working freelance on the weekends. I left in September 2021, to full-time freelance 1st and 2nd AC, and I started as balloon tech at the aerial lighting company, Airstar. The next goal is to join local 600 as an assistant. Check out my resume page to see a more detailed list of past projects!
Film photography is a side hustle that came out of the pandemic. The technical workflow, physicality and final result, makes the medium an extremely enjoyable process to put some time into. If you're a photographer that grew up in the digital world, I believe its beneficial to step back and look at the mediums of the past too.
