I'm Jonathan Stiers (pronounced Sty-ers), and I am a designer, photographer and quasi-foodie.

I grew up in Fayetteville, AR, where I got my degree in graphic design and for the past 17 years, have been immersed in the graphic design industry. As a designer and photo art director, I've been lucky enough to travel to beautiful places, experience new things and sample amazing foods.

But back to design, photography and food...I’ve always loved beautiful food photography. I could look at food publications such as Bon Appétit, Food & Wine, Sweet Paul & more, for hours. Following numerous food photographers on Instagram suddenly made me think, “I can do this!” So I went out and bought my first camera and here we are. 

Starting the Stiers Aesthetic has acted as my food photography bootcamp in addition to a platform for sharing all the spaces, places and things that I love! Hopefully while perusing around, you’ll find something you love too.
