Jon Carmichael is a speaker, sport pilot, and self-taught photography artist whose career started at age 20. He quickly became one of the youngest high-profile photographers in the world and has worked with President Barack Obama, Lady Gaga, the Dalai Lama and others.
Carmichael is partnered with many leading brands including Twitter, Dell, and ESPN, and has been invited to speak at NASA, TEDx, and Twitter.
Carmichael is best known for his large cosmic photographic mosaics. For nearly a decade, his contemporary work remained unseen and was never printed or sold. In 2015, he produced his first set of artist proofs which were discovered and seen for the first time by Sir Elton John. Elton became Carmichael’s biggest collector and invited him to debuted his first series of collectible works titled, “The Decade” at Caesars Palace Las Vegas - giving the public a rare chance to collect his printed works for the very first time.
Carmichael’s latest project of the Great American Eclipse, titled “108”, received international acclaim. He aims to push the envelope of photographic technology to unveil parts of the universe that can’t be seen with the naked eye. On shooting the night sky, Carmichael says, “It’s a humbling reminder of our place in the universe - how small and insignificant, yet rare and precious we are. Realizing the fragility of life on our planet is vital.”
