Jo Cole Photography

Posted on: May 4th, 2014 by Carolyn No Comments

Working with Jo on our Easter Shoot last month, was an incredible privilege, and although Jo is not new to the blog, I am delighted to formally introduce Jo Cole Photography to the `i am captivated` family.  Jo is a Dubai based photographer who specializes in wedding, events and family shoots.  We met a few months ago and began planning and dreaming about how we could work together (I felt very honoured!) and our first project was the Easter Shoot.  It was an amazing opportunity for me to work alongside Jo and watch how she captured each image with such care.

Personally ,I love the clarity and detail that Jo portrays in her work.  I did a little bit of research into what you should look for when choosing a photographer to capture your wedding or family images and there was a whole paragraph dedicated to a photographer`s personality.  Jo Cole is the kind of `personality` you want to have around.  With her relaxed, professional approach, she is sure to make you feel comfortable and at ease while capturing photographs that will last a life time.  I love the range of images in this article.

Briefly describe your business…

I am a Dubai based British Photographer who specialises in weddings, events and family shoots.

 

Why you love what you do…

This isn’t a job for me, it’s a passion that I have had from a very young age. I feel extremely thankful that I am able to do something that I love so much, it gives me the advantage of being able to dedicate my whole self to my clients and have that extra edge.

 

Have you always been a photographer…

I studied Photographic Art at university and have been a photographer for the past 5 years. I always remember cameras being a part of my life growing up, evening starting with the bright red plastic View-Master I once had! I remember very clearly the first camera I was given, it was a blue pocket sized camera which took the 110mm cartridge.

 

Your main focus…

I am a reportage photographer so for me it’s important to always be watching the people around you. For weddings this is particularly crucial.  I like to capture the moments when people don’t realise you are there, those candid shots which really portray someone’s personality.

 

Why you love Dubai…

I love Dubai. As a mother of 2 I’m very grateful to be able to live in a safe country where the weather for 60% of the year is great enabling us to be outdoors so much. We’ve been here almost 8 years, to us this is home.

 

Your favourite place to go for a relaxing cup of tea…

Where the carrot cake is good!

 

Your favourite holiday destination…

I loved Sri Lanka, the simplicity of it, the climate, the scenery and most of all the people. I would love to go back someday soon.
