About Jo

Jo2 SM.jpg

I started as a cadet photographer for The Advertiser in 1999 as a baby-faced 16-year-old. In 2012, with 14 years of great experiences and challenging photo-shoots behind me, I decided it was time to focus on my own business. And please only one editor - YOU the client. My job at the paper taught me how to take a great photograph in any situation - regardless of the elements involved. So I am confident I can work in any circumstances to achieve the pictures you desire. Thank you for taking the time to look over my website - I look forward to hearing from you!

photojo

My business name "photojo" came about from my volunteering for Camp Quality, where there were too many people named Jo. So I was known as Photographer Jo - and the perfect business name was born - photojo!

Camp Quality

I have done volunteer photography for Camp Quality for over since I became a photographer (since 1999). This not for profit charity injects 'fun therapy' into the lives of children living with Cancer. These children are simply inspirational and volunteers involved in this charity are some of the finest people on the planet. I'm grateful to have had the honour of working with this organisation and its people and look forward to more of the same 'fun therapy' in the future!

Photography @ photojo

I look forward to shooting all kinds of jobs - weddings, family photos and pet portraits to commercial photography, event coverage and sports - and everything in-between. If you need professional photographs  - I'm keen to take them for you!

Workshops @ photojo

As well as taking photos, I would also love to share my knowledge of photography in the form of tuition workshops. I'd like to help people who have spent the money on a digital SLR camera to better understand how their camera works so they can use it to its full potential. If compact camera photography is more your style, then I have some simple tips to help you take better pictures with your happy snapper! I can also assist corporate clients, who need their staff to be able produce photos for newsletters or websites. I can teach them some simple yet effective, rules to take better photos - whatever their equipment. Send me an email or give me a call if this is something you are interested in, and I can formulate a package for you based on your needs. I'm happy to work with groups or one-on-one depending on your preferences. Thanks again for reading - speak to you soon! Jo
