Capturing a real moment tangibly is an art form: grasping a living, breathing moment and turning it into a single frame; highlighting the qualities of an image that give it character; and catching an emotion in real-time, forever. As story tellers, we strive to work with brands that want to deliver powerful messages using digital tools + social media.
History & Background
Classic City Captures℠ was established in 2015 by Athens native and University of Georgia Grady College of Journalism & Mass Communication alumnus Jonathan Boyce Hogan.
While in college studying telecommunications, Jonathan worked in video operations for the UGA Athletic Association's football program, participated in the George Foster Peabody Awards student judge program, served as a courier at Blasingame, Burch, Garrard & Ashley, P.C., and co-managed operations for his family's lumber company. As a student, Jon studied video production, emerging media technologies, digital media production, media programming and management, and law of mass communication.
After graduation, Jon continued working in the family business before taking a job for 3 years at Technical Services Audio Visual, a commercial audio visual consulting and systems integration firm, where he was promoted to business development director for 2 years before moving on to serve as a project manager and site superintendent for The CloverLeaf Group, a general contracting and construction management company.
Each of these experiences provided Jon with the professional and educational opportunities that lead to the inception of Classic City Captures℠. Jon is FAA certified as a sUAS Remote Pilot In Command, and he is OSHA 30 certified for Hazard Recognition Training in the Construction Industry. Jon aspires to continually develop his overall business acumen with a primary focus on digital content, internet technology, and intellectual property rights and privacy issues related to the distribution of media across the internet.
Jon grew up spending summers with his family at Lake Hartwell in Northeast Georgia on the border of Georgia and South Carolina where his love for sports and the great outdoors originated. Jon was raised in an athletic family playing baseball, basketball, golf, football, and tennis among other sports while also enjoying the occasional bird hunt, fishing, watersports, and snowboarding. Jon resides in Athens, Georgia with his wife, Jamie, and their English springer spaniel, Maggie.
