Producer, Jonny Lightbender

I AM...
a photographer, videographer, video editor, production sound mixer, composer, producer, singer, penciling artist, graphic artist, writer, actor, model, voice talent, Fred Astaire certified ballroom dance instructor, International Business Major. 

I currently work for Weichert, Realtors® - The Space Place as the Director of Communications and Marketing. And I work for myself as a freelance video producer and photographer at JonnyLightbender.
Thank you for googling me. I created this website to provide an overview of myself, who I am, and what I have to offer. I currently reside in North Alabama and split my time doing production video gigs and other creative projects involving music, photography, and the like.

I grew up in east Orlando (the UCF Knight's stomping grounds). In 2013, I left my career in IT sales to pursue my creative endeavors as a full-time, freelance video producer and photographer. This adventure into entrepreneurial-ism and has been both challenging and rewarding. At about the same time I experienced something of an awakening. I decided then to begin a new chapter in my life; one in which I am the author of my own story. Life continues to bring a barrage of struggles (new and old) as well as opportunities to be seized.

I'm a big fan of exercise and good nutrition and the powerful benefits that come with living an active, healthy lifestyle. I don't drink. I don't smoke. And I generally stay away from refined white sugar, flour, unnecessary additives and preservatives. Not a vegatarian but I try to eat organic whenever possible. Its all pretty much the opposite of how I was raised. No added sugar. No high fructose corn syrup. Fresher is better. Raw is best. Starting my day in the gym gets me charged with positive energy. I'm currently enrolled in an online personal trainer certification course

I have a lot to offer this world. With ballroom dancing, I've discovered a fantastic outlet for creative expression combined with daily personal interactions and an ongoing pursuit of knowledge and refining of learned skills.

With that I am staying true still to my oldest passion which is film and video/photographer. Take a look at my work and if you see something you like let me know. I draw, I sing, I dance, I make photos and videos. I even dabble in musical composition. Let me know if I can be of service to you, your company, or someone you know.
