About Me


Following the successful completion of a BA Hons Degree in photography from West Surrey College of Art and Design, Jonathan moved to Dubai in 1993 and worked as an in-house photographer and digital re-toucher for APS Advertising before setting up as a freelance photographer in 1996.

Photography is all about communication. Whether it’s photographing a golf tournament, a landmark construction project or a product launch, the priority must be to create imagery that communicates your message.

Over the last 20 years, Jonathan Walley has been in demand covering the world capturing on film and digital everything from rallies in Australia to airships above Europe. It’s a pedigree offering the experience and capability to work quickly and creatively under pressure in order to meet the clients’ specific needs and deadlines.

Jonathan Walley’s creative photographic work features architectural, portraiture, industrial and commercial styles used in business productions such as annual reports, product brochures and advertising, while the ability to provide event photography for promotional purposes ranging from simple press launches to large sporting events is unparalleled in the region.

With Jonathan being one of the first Middle East-based photographers to embrace digital photography in 2000, clients are assured of receiving both the practical and financial benefits of state-of-the-art digital equipment and years of digital experience. However, though most work is now digitally captured, Jonathan’s roots come from traditional photographic methods and he retains the ability to work with and supply medium and large format film photography.

Whatever your commercial photographic requirements, Jonathan Walley Photography is ideally placed to meet your needs.
