Here you can read about photographer Jo Halpin Jones' career and travels.
For the past 30 years Jo Halpin Jones has lived in West Norfolk, bringing to an end a more nomadic existence in London, East Africa and Canada. Her photographic travels, however, still keep her on the move, to Australia, New Zealand, Nepal, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, the USA, Morocco, Iceland, South Africa, Istanbul, and widely around Europe and the UK. Whenever it is physically possible, she and her husband, Dick, travel in a VW campervan, such as on trips to Morocco and Iceland.
After working in publishing, marketing, and then Social Services, a two-year photographic course from 2000 to 2002 finally tipped a lifetime's hobby into a serious professional career. Jo opens up her studio two or three times a year as part of a village art trail (www.DersinghamArtTrail.org), though she is always open by appointment. Her work can be found in her own exhibitions in various locations around Norfolk, and as a contributor to exhibitions organised by the West Norfolk Artists Association. She also has a permanent display of images at The King's Head Hotel in Great Bircham and in The Dial House Gallery in Kimbolton, Cambridgeshire.
Apart from her work in fine art photography, Jo Halpin Jones also has an interest in other area of photography.
