Jerry’s Thoughts On The Art1095 Project
Everything that David Edmonson has experienced in his life has led him to be the master of his craft to create breathtaking works of art. I’m usually the teacher, but even without saying a word, David is teaching you something. His mere energy makes you want to be a better person, watching his masterpieces will no doubt make you a better artist.
Jerry’s Thoughts On David Edmonson
David is simply one of my favorite people in the world. He is full of love, grace, and humility and is the closest I will ever have to a second father. I would love to be the only one that feels that way, but there are an endless amount of people that revere him in the same way. Having the pleasure of photographing 2 of his children’s weddings, sharing the memories of my own wedding and seeing him at his most challenging times, I can say that he is the living embodiment of love. That’s what makes him an incredible artist.
David’s Thoughts On Jerry
I consider Jerry Ghionis to be a humble, gracious, and loving person, which is why I believe he is such an exceptionally gifted photographer. I’ve personally watched him take the time to listen and help others, including myself, often behind the scenes. As a photographer, he inspires me because he is one of the few to understand and demonstrate the feeling of cinematic lighting. Not only does his imagery have a tremendous sense of style and elegance, but it also has flawless storytelling and impact.
I love how he cares deeply about my family and me. I’ve seen him handle difficult situations with discretion and with a goal of bringing out the best in people. At his core, he’s an encourager and champion of others. One of his biggest gifts is the unique ability to look at anyone in the room and share with them the next steps they need to take to become a better photographer.
Personally, I’ve taken his mantra of “to be a better photographer it starts with being a better person” as one of the key foundations of the torch that I’m carrying right now.
Most of all, I love how he loves his family, specifically his wife Melissa, and their ability to laugh and find shared joys in life. It naturally makes people want to be around them! His ability to make people feel comfortable in front of the camera or individually is a rare quality.
