Who’s Jona?

I’m Jona, or rather Jodie Nash. When I started making calendars 15 years ago I didn’t want to put Jodie Nash calendar on them so I shortened it to the first 2 letters of my first and surname. I grew up in a country town in the Mallee but now live in the Gold Coast so love the outdoors. I love animals, I own 3 cats, was able to tame wild kittens growing up and volunteer for the local animal rescue shelter. I’ve been a nurse for over a decade so I can wake up at any hour and be ready to get out with the camera. I have family in 3 different states so regularly go interstate.

Why me?

I am passionate about photography. I am passionate about getting the most amazing shot. I am passionate about being excited by what I present to you. My gallery gives you a glimpse into that but it’s me that shows you that.  Talk to me, discover what I can do. Look around and see what I can do. If you have an idea we can work together to make it happen. Not only do I photograph landscapes, animals and your pets but I’m even ready to capture your special place.

My gear?

I’m a Nikon girl so have a D810 and a D700. My lens collection includes the Sigma 28-70mm f/2.8, Nikon 50mm f/1.8, Nikon 105mm f/2.8, Nikon 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6, Nikon 200-500mm f/5.6, Nikon 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5, Samyang 14mm f/2.8. I have multiple lens filters, the Nikon SB-600 speed light and a portable micro studio backdrop. Photographs are edited using Adobe Photoshop CS6 & LR5.


To show you a little about me here is one day of my life. This was a few months ago at

my photography exhibition launch.  Although it was great to show people my work it

was more more amazing to experience the support of friends and family.                      .
