Cameron Knudsen started ISO Photography Training form a deep love of photography and a desire to share that passion with the world. He was introduced to photography at the age of 10 on a weekend trip to Yellowstone with his grandparents. It was on that weekend that Cameron first held a camera and was free to take hundreds of photos as they explored. A few weeks later when all the rolls of film had been developed, they realized, to everyone’s surprise, the photos were really quite good.
Nine years later Cameron was on active duty in the military living overseas. As he began to travel and explore Europe his camera was always with him. The more photos he took the more he wanted to learn. Soon Cameron was buying every book he could find to learn new skills. Before long, word got around that he took photos, and he began taking family portraits for other service men and woman and their families. Eventually, he moved to Japan where he ended up working for the base photographing military events, and on occasion, documenting disaster relief efforts after earthquakes, tsunamis, and typhoons.
Fast forward another 10 years to when his service with the military was complete and Cameron needed to make the decision of what to do with his life. The choice was clear. He wanted to follow photography to whatever adventure it would take him on. He decided to go to school and get a bachelor's degree in Photography and expand his knowledge and skills even further.
Cameron’s professional experience includes:
Owner/Operator of Timeless Moments Photography, from family photos to weddings
Product photography: Rocky Mountain ATV, photographing everything in their line up from ATV’s to Apparel including the coordination with models for the shots on location. Walker Eddison, photographing their product line-up in custom interior designs.
Cameron teaches photography at Utah Valley University and ISO Photography
That bring us too now. After a couple years in the corporate sector Cameron was ready to move back to focusing on his passion. Photography is not just a job or a hobby for Cameron but, it is his happy place, therapy, and way to reconnect with nature and reset. Photography has brought much joy into his life, and it is time to give back to the photography world and share the knowledge he has gained over the years.
Cameron’s additional credentials include:
- U.S. Coast Guard Accredited Captain
- Wilderness First Responder Certified
- Advanced Open Water Scuba Certification

His favorite type of fishing is for Small Mouth Bass at Lake Powell. It is not uncommon for him to get up at 4:00AM to make sure he is the first on the lake to cast his line and get that early morning bite.
Jeramiah is the #1 deck hand for Lake Powell Guide Service. His skills at prepping gear, tying line, and backing up a truck and trailer are pro. The behind-the-scenes guy who is a vital part of keeping the lines tight for fellow anglers.
