Jon Raskin
Artist | Professional | Photography
United States
My name is Jon, and like most people who live in Florida, I'm from New York.

As of right now, I've been using DSLRs for about five years, and I'm entirely self-taught.

Though my career is now based around portrait and fashion photography, my goal with deviantART has primarily been to showcase my work with wildlife. I would like to continue to find exposure through sharing my unique vision and experiences, and to continue to inspire others to learn about animals, nature, and the world in which we live.


JonShotFirst has started a donation pool!

All points donated will go directly into a deviantART CORE Membership; something that makes displaying and sharing my work much easier!

:w00t: Welcome, it's great that you've joined us at :iconanimal-portraits: :)

I hope you really enjoy being part of our group; you can submit two images per folder per week.

Please read the submission rules so that you submit to the correct folder (the folder structure is fairly straightforward) :)

However, if you are a Traditional or Digital Artist then only submit to the corresponding folders Traditional Artwork & Digital Artwork

Please feel free to ask if there's anything else that you're not quite sure of :)

We look forward to seeing your great work, being submitted, in the near future :)
