Raymond Jones is a diverse photographer. Winning three international photography awards. Weddings, portraits, commercial, editorial experienced who is based in Chester, Cheshire.
"It must be over 25 years since I was given a Polaroid Instamatic camera. Ever since then, I've had a passion for photography. A passion to capture beautiful images for myself and for people who ask me to work for them. The biggest honour of all is that my clients ask me and trust me to put my heart into creating creative/timeless images and memories that will last forever."
Not long after this, Ray bought himself an SLR with basic lens. Then when he was able to purchase more lenses his creativity started and continues today. He does still have his old 50mm lens and still uses it today!
With so much passion and joy creating images for clients and himself, from stunning fine art weddings to grand vistas. " I adopt the same approach: dedication to create the best images this far in my ongoing development as a photographer."
He often get asked what he does for a living and replies, "I create art imagery that changes the recipient in mood and feeling."
"I commissioned Raymond, not only for hard prints and digital images, but the experience, the way he made us feel, the way he directed us into favourable lighting, making us comfortable and inspired. His knowledge of his art is so memorable and his images are not just of myself and my family but also there is an element of him in them that we all cherish."

Model shoot: "I am a hair and make-up artist and Ray recently did some images of a model for me for my portfolio. I am delighted with the results they are just perfect. He also did some images of my dog Robbie and captured him beautifully, Robbie is such a loveable dog but not the easiest to take images of I'm sure as he is so full of it but Ray had so much patience. I would highly recommend Ray for any photography requirements as he is an expert at them all. Thank you so so much! Lizzie & Of course Robbie" Lizzie Griffiths MUA
