Debbie Jones is a commerical photographer who specialises in food photography, working in locations and restaurants around the UK. She also freelances for Adobe, speaking at various seminars and events on Lightroom.
My first photographic memory was playing with a polaroid camera and I'll never forget the sheer excitement of watching a picture literally develop in front of my very eyes, even back then it serviced my impatient streak. After progressing to a film SLR in early teenage years, I remembered with pride the first three rolls of film I used shooting a pretty rubbish sunset at the back of our house; with the cost of film development, digital was definitely the invention for me!
It took me a very long time to realise life is short and you need to live it. After being fortunate to work with lots of different photographers over the years in a non photographic capacity I realised that the only person holding me back from jumping into my own photographic skin was me. Now "I am photographer" and every day I am inspired through my absolute passion for all things food whether buying, making, eating or meeting wonderful people who are all so passionate about what they do.
Photographically one of my most profound inspirations has to be Bob Carlos Clarke, pure passion and emotion and "White Heat" will have a place on my bookshelf for eternity.
Continuing to love the life I live and living the life I love. Photographically I want to grow, learn some new technical stuff to support where I've got to now. The biggest compliment anyone can pay me about my photography is to "feel hungry" after looking at - if I continue to manage that, then in my eyes the future will be bright :-)
