About Thurman Jones - thurmanjonesphotography

Biography

I have had a love of photography since childhood; I received my first “real” camera in 1985. I took pictures of every flower and animal I could find and when I had the money I would get them developed. I am a big fan of dogs and animals in general; my wife Tracy and I have three dogs two of which are rescues and we participate in several rescue events per year. I still take pictures of animals especially dogs every chance I get.

Tracy and I are originally from the Indianapolis area and moved to Southern Indiana in 2008. We really enjoy all of the parks, hiking and wineries that Southern Indiana has to offer.

Photography has become an addiction because it always you to present your view of reality through the work that you produce. I tend to favor black and white there is something timeless and elegant about a black and white image. I am a fan of images that are a little “grungy” and mysterious but on the other hand I also like high key images.
