Jomon completed his diploma in cinematography from Government Film and Television Institute, Bangalore. He subsequently became active in the advertisement film industry. He made his feature film debut when Sameer Thahir signed him as the cinematographer of his debut directorial, Chaappa Kurish (2011). After being part of many successful films in subsequent years, it was the year 2015 that had turned a milestone in his career. His cinematography in Picket 43 , Ennu Ninte Moideen, Charlie and Oru Vadakkan Selfie were highly acclaimed, with four among his five releases in the year becoming blockbusters. He was soon signed by Tamil filmmaker Gautham Vasudev Menon for the Dhanush-starrer Enai Noki Paayum Thota. After completion of the film, Menon also signed him for his next Dhruva Natchathiram and filmed a 2:49 second teaser in New York City. But soon, Jomon opted out of the film as it was rescheduled, and the new schedule clashed with the dates he had earlier allocated for Rohit Shetty's Golmaal Again.[1]

Jomon married actress Ann Augustine on February 2, 2014.
