Jon Carmichael, a Las Vegas native, is a self-taught photographer who started his career at age 20 with the purchase of his first camera. In the past decade, Carmichael has accomplished photographing many notable figures including President Barack Obama, Lady Gaga, Stevie Wonder and others. By 26, Carmichael had worked for many leading brands including Twitter, Dell, and ESPN and has been featured on FOX, ABC and the New York Times.
Carmichael’s deepest passion however, remained in Contemporary landscape and astrophotography. For the last 10 years, Carmichael has devoted his efforts to honing his craft and creating a series of breathtaking photographs from many of the locations he has traveled to around the world.
For nearly a decade, Carmichael’s Contemporary work remained unseen and was never printed or sold. In 2015, he produced his first set of artist proofs which were discovered and seen for the first time by Sir Elton John. Elton became Carmichael’s first collector.
