Four time AACTA awarding winning and Emmy nominated cinematographer Jon Shaw, founder of ginclearfilm, specialises in underwater cinematography and has had a passion for the ocean and environment from an early age.  From his beginnings as a marine biologist and commercial diver, Jon has developed an enviable career travelling the world to film astonishing wildlife both above and below the ocean’s surface.

Jon is passionate about arresting the perils that face the ongoing sustainability of the world’s oceans. “Coral bleaching, dwindling shark numbers and the outcome of today’s overuse and disposal of plastics in our environment are issues I witness repeatedly through my work.  I want to be able to take those issues to the people through film”, Jon Shaw said.

Jon’s love for using the most advanced filming technology allows the audience a seemingly real-life glance into the environments he captures on film.

Jon is a full accredited member of Australian Cinematographers Society (member).
