Jonathan's interest in Photography began back in the 1950's when he first observed his father, Gerard Nook, working in Photography.
Gerard worked as a commercial artist in New York City, as an Art Director for This Week Magazine, part of the New York Times Sunday paper, and later moved on to work for companies like Reader's Digest, Western Publishing's Golden Books, and TV Guide. Gerard also shot photographs for the many books he designed and published with his partner and author, Shirley Glubock.

As a young child, Jonathan, and his sister Lisbeth, would help their father take photographs for the books at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, and later that night, return to Gerard's Manhattan apartment to develop the film and print the photos. Seeing the developed rolls of negatives and watching the images come to life on the photographic paper as it sat there in the developer in that dimly lit dark-room, fascinated both Jonathan and Lisbeth. It wasn't long until Gerard had bought Jonathan a Kodak Brownie Twin 20 camera that worked with rolls of 620 film, a film that was substantially larger then today's 35mm. Soon Jonathan was taking his own black and white pictures, developing the film himself, and then turning the images into prints with an old Bogen enlarger. Gerard continually inspired both Jonathan and Lisbeth with an assortment of books on photography that kept the two of them very interested.

Jonathan's work in photography stagnated until he was offered a job shooting an article for Vista Magazine in 1973. He went out and bought a new Minolta SRT-101 35mm camera with a few lenses, and went on to do additional work for Vista Magazine, and other clients. Later he took college classes to further his photographic skills.

In 2000 he moved to digital photography, buying an Olympus E-10 digital SLR, and today shoots with a Nikon D600 developing the RAW images with Adobe Photoshop. "I'm not into ordinary photography" he told us. Jonathan instead envisions his creations like he thinks Andy Warhol might have. A big fan of Andy, as was his father, Jonathan prefers very abstract images, reworked in Photoshop.

Today, Jonathan works in television, continues his work in photography, and builds websites, telling us that he doesn't do boring websites either.
