My name is Jon Kane Houldsworth from New Zealand. Part-time, long-term, ex-professional photographer and film-maker. I now work in brand marketing and creative while indulging my love of motion picture photography and cinemagraph art on the side. This is my personal site featuring a fast growing portfolio of videos available to purchase and license through traditional digital art platforms and NFTs in the CryptoArt space.

I was always drawn to capturing life, ever since I was a little boy of the 80’s playing with my grandfathers Polaroid and my parents home video camera.  Starting on film, tape then memory cards… it has remained a lifelong passion and I’m still that child at heart! I specialize in Cinemagraph Art, motion pictures that appear like fine art photography with isolated areas of seamless looping motion within them, the perfect format for the future of digital art displays like Samsung Frame TV’s. The rise of NFTs on Blockchain as a form of collectible digital art in the Crypto Art world is an exciting development, further bringing the value of motion art into peoples lives.


I worked in film & television for a number of years where I honed the craft alongside design and editing. But I eventually moved into business and now work as a creative brand manager. This has allowed me to understand what brands need to tell a story but it also allowed me to re-discover the pure freedom of photography & video as a hobby on the side, for nothing more than the love of creating digital art! Some of my work documents simple moments in time, others tell more universal truths of life on this strange rock called earth!
