Jonathan Worth

Jonathan Worth has worked out of New York and London as a professional photographer since 1998. His work is featured in a wide range of international editorial publications and is on permanent collection at the U.K.’s National Portrait Gallery. His work developing new business models for photographers was described in the European Parliament as “Breaking new ground for photographers” and in recognition he was made a fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and Commerce.

In 2009 Jonathan authored and delivered the world’s first open undergraduate photography class for Coventry University which saw more than 35,000 people visit in just one term and was described by WIRED magazine as “shaking up photo-education." In the same year he worked with Peter Woodbridge to design the world's first undergraduate photography class mobile application.

His work leveraging the social web for photographers was featured in Creative Commons’ The Power Of Open in 2011 and as a case study for the U.K.’s Joint Information Systems Committee in 2012, when he was invited to speak at the Houses of Parliament.

In 2013, Jonathan was made a National Teaching Fellow and his work redesigning the BA Hons course was awarded Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Reclaim Open Learning Prize.
