Jonathan Poh is a landscape, travel, and astro photographer near Setúbal in Portugal.
I love travelling and seeing the world (22 countries and counting).
I am naturally curious, seeking out interesting locations in Portugal and elsewhere around the world for
breathtaking landscapes, stunning sunsets, and clear dark skies for ethereal nightscapes and Milky Way photographs.
I am Jonathan
Olá, hola, 你好, bonjour, hallo, g'day, hello!
I started my photography journey many years ago, and have had a keen interest in photography for the past two decades. I learned about photographic composition, the exposure triangle, and the Rule of Thirds formally in my design studies at university, but also from my late father, Laurence Poh, who was an accomplished hobbyist photographer himself. I've done a tonne of experimentation: low-light and astrophotography, long exposure, landscapes, streetscapes, nightscapes, macro, you name it.
I worked as a front-end UI/UX engineer for most of my working life, but lately, on reflecting how ephemeral the creation of websites is, I’ve been longing to make things - art - that is more tangible and lasting. In 2022, I started looking back at my terabytes of photo libraries and realising the long journey I’ve been on, in all the places I’ve had the privilege to visit and live in. In observing the progression and growth of my photographic craft, I’ve decided I’d love to pursue this properly.
I currently focus on Landscapes and Landscape Astrophotography, but you can be sure I will continue experimenting and learning new techniques. With that, I hope to share my joy of photography with you, from my collections, as well as new projects in the future.
