Los Angeles is a landscape of wonder and diversity. I wanted to break with the usual daily routine and just head to the beach and allow for my eye to wonder. I hope your enjoy.

LA Rockstars Baseball Club's Inaugural Fest by john leath

I had the opportunity to shoot some #behindthescene #bts images at the inaugural Rockstars Baseball Club Community Fest. A great organization that is developing young men by using Baseball as a medium. Check out their IG at Rockstarbaseball. ALL images captured by Jon Leath for Jonarthur photography. #rockstarnation #jonarthur_photography #sportsinlosangeles #losangeles #losangelesbaseball #baseballinlosangeles #sportsphotography #sportsnarratives #infield #history


Maybe it is the weather? I don't know, the Marley Coffee? The energy captured and the editing that takes place in post production, is moody....








LINCOLN & VENICE by john leath

I have driven past this intersection far too many times to remember. As of late, my gaze began to take notice...So on one warm and sunny day, I stopped and explored....I hope you enjoy some of those moments like I did....

Rites of Passage.. by john leath

All cultures celebrate rites of passage from adolescence to adulthood. Its one coming out to the world. It was a pleasure to have been asked to capture one's Quinceanera. It was my first and it was an honor. I hope you enjoy the memories.


Open to the PUBLIC by john leath

June 3rd, 2014 a day that is special to me for many reasons. My first nephew was born on this day and today is the day that I make public my online photography gallery. This is an exciting time for me as I am able to unveil my attempt of revealing the world as I see it to the public. My training in Interior Architecture has been a  great influence in how I SEE the world of design and space. More importantly, my education as a Sociologist also informs my lens in that I am inclined to observe social space and capture that which is observed. I hope that you enjoy the imagery observed. 


"...every society must produce its own space. ....it[space]  is actively constructed and produced"....


Edgecliff...Los Angeles exploration by john leath

Each opportunity i get I turn of the path of normality. Each turn provides another gem, a new route, something surprising that I had never known. This is no different in Los Angeles. I drive a lot for work and I am not a fan of the freeway traffic, therefore I often will travel an additional 3 miles just to avoid the jam. My curiosity is a perfect match for such ventures. I have come across true neighborhood gems in Los Angeles as a result, not to mention finding alternative routes to common destinations. Today was nothing different. I came across a small section of the city that provided rich textures, great architecture, and non-conformist energy that is so sexy.... Nestled off the main strip of Sunset, this area just west of Echo Park captured my attention...Enjoy



Hope you enjoy.

Testing out a new lens by john leath

So, the other day i was using my tripod to explore low lighting in my house. Well, low and behold, I went to move a chord that was obstructing movement and ..BAMMMMM...my camera fell, completely breaking my tamron 70-300mm. Ouch. Yes, so painful of an experience. This was a lense that was so often used. Needless to say i went out and puchased a new lens yet with a shorter range. i purchased a Tamron 28-75mm 2.8. Wow! Here are some samples from my new friend, Tamron.

Hope you enjoy.
