Photographer to the Stars: Jonathan Exley

In 1976 I was photographed by a young professional starting out in Los Angeles, named Jonathan Exley. He came highly recommended and I remember that he had a modest studio on Santa Monica Blvd.. Jonathan was kind-hearted, soft-spoken and extremely talented.

Little did I know that I was in front of the eye and camera that would later capture the likes of countless notables in the world of entertainment, sports and politics. Jonathan passed away in 2011, but not before making his mark with his unique ability to “grab the human soul in that instant of honesty.”

Shown here are: Bo Derek, Michael Jackson, Patrick Swayze, Dolly Parton, Jerry Seinfeld, Marcel Marceau, Matthew Perry, Cameron Diaz and yours truly.

What an honor!
