Before Jonas became a photographer he did a career as a professional ballet dancer at the Finnish National Ballet and later at the Pennsylvania Ballet in Philadelphia, USA. In 2002 he stopped dancing due to an injury and decided to make a transition to photography.

Jonas feels, that choosing photography as a second career was natural. Dancing requires rigours attention to details, timing, forms and shapes, often trained in front of a mirror. Photography allows him to observe and capture these things in the outer world.
