Jon Berndt has been photographing a wide range of subjects for over 40 years, but has found a “target rich environment” in the Colorado Rocky Mountains since 2011 after having moved from Texas. He was inspired at a young age by the black and white landscapes of Ansel Adams, and more recently by the photography of Thomas Mangelsen and Alain Briot.

Jon particularly enjoys photographing landscapes in sometimes temperamental weather conditions.

He lives in Westminster with his wife and four children, and is an aerospace engineer by day.
