Forever on the quest to provide the most inspiring and engaging stories to share with our audience, the day that Jon Lorentz tagged Last Daze in one of his shots we stopped and paid attention. Nowadays, it can be hard to stumble across an image that stops you in your tracks, one that makes you want to jump through all their photos and learn more about their stories, lucky for us, and lucky for you Jon Lorentz found Last Daze. 

Lorentz has always combined creative expression with his passion for adventure, education, training and development. After studying music education at Florida State University, where he founded a successful a cappella group, Jon completed a Photographic Technology degree while supporting himself by working for Apple and simultaneously growing as a broad-based freelance photographer. Jon's early success at Apple led to mentoring roles, which grew into training assignments and market-level training leadership and development opportunities. At the same time, Jon started and built the photography department for Orlando City SC as they grew from a second-tier national champion soccer club into a Major League Soccer (MLS) competitor. Never one to pigeonhole himself, Jon was also a Disney contract photographer who conceived, composed, captured, and edited stunning images featured in Disney's global marketing campaigns.

The passion, energy, and emotion captured in Jon's sports images drew the attention of MLS and its member teams. Jon's shots have appeared several times as the MLS website featured photo and have been picked up by The New York Times and globally. On the flip side Jon is revealed in his fashion, lifestyle, commercial and swimwear photography including having been featured by Vogue. In 2013, Jon returned to his native California with Apple and used that opportunity to join the photography team of Major League Soccer's LA Galaxy.

The formal grounding that Jon received in the theory and practical application of education, training, and development during his five years with Apple, combined with his field experience using Canon equipment and honing images using advanced digital products, prepared Jon to move into his current position as Lead Trainer for Canon USA.
