behind the lens
Originally from Sheffield, I moved to London in 2018 having completed my degree at The Royal Birmingham Conservatoire where I trained as an actor, and my experiences in front of the lens have certainly enhanced my ability to create from behind it.
Coming from a family of photographers you could say that photography is in my blood, yet it was not until I first held my Mum’s old Nikon F2A that this passion first stirred inside me, and I’ve been obsessed with capturing the perfect image ever since. It feels incredibly exciting to be carrying on a family tradition.
I’m a massive perfectionist, and I believe that my eye for detail coupled with a capacity for creative flair is the perfect recipe for creating exciting content for my clients to share all over the world.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask me. I very much look forward to hearing from you!
Alex is one of my favourite photographers to work with. She creates a relaxed, energised environment, and her shoots are run with efficiency and professionalism. With Alex’s guidance and inspiration, we’ve captured some of my favourite shots - perfect for professional portfolios, social media or anything else! I would highly recommend working with Alex, and can’t wait to do so again.

Alex is one of the most talented photographers I have had the pleasure to work with! Her immense passion and enthusiasm behind the lens is apparent with every photo she takes. She immediately understood what photos we were looking for and what she delivered was beyond our expectations. I definitely recommend her to make your vision a reality, as she truly is a joy to work with!

I shoot with Alex every time I'm in London. She is incredibly organised and professional, sending galleries and images promptly and she is always full of fabulous location ideas. However, what really sets Alex apart from other photographers is how easy she is to work with. She understood my aesthetic from day one and makes me feel so comfortable in front of the camera. Her direction makes sure we always get the perfect shot in minimal time and she really goes the extra mile with her editing.

I am from California and found Alex on Instagram. I was not familiar with the area and she took me around Notting-hill and we had the best shoot! I even brought a friend along and we got on so well with Alex! She made us feel so comfortable, she had lots of pointers, and was just overall such a great photographer to work with! She was very timely with the photos and they were BEAUTIFUL! Exactly what I was looking for but better! Can’t wait to shoot with her in the future!

What can I say about Alex Jones’ Photography? Not only is she the most talented photographer in London, but she is professional, smart, genuine and humble. My first ever shoot with Alex was caught on Film. The shoot had me on a high for the rest of the week! I was very very nervous, however, Alex was patient, attentive, supportive and offered crazy encouragement behind the lens! As someone who is not in front of the camera at all, Alex made me feel worthy every minute.
05. Sara Khurshid
I was super nervous as this was my first time having my photos taken. I didn’t know what to expect or if I would be able to pose in front of a camera, but as soon as I met Alex she made me feel at ease, she was encouraging, professional and fun at the same time. If I were to outline Alex’s skills, it is listening to exactly what you want and putting you at ease with her friendly approach. She really cares about what she does and the pictures are absolutely stunning, I could not believe that I could actually look that good.
06. Elizabeth West
Alex took time to look into my brand via my mood boards and was from the get-go excited and reassuring. On the day of the shoot, Alex really took control and gave me so much direction! I felt at ease and confident that Alex knew exactly what she was doing. Her decisive attitude and encouragement throughout made the whole process really fun and my nerves went away really quickly. Alex edited the photos beautifully and captured my vision, and she was super quick too! I wholeheartedly recommend Alex to anyone!

My husband and I did a photoshoot with Alex, and was the best experience ever! She is so talented and made us feel so comfortable and confident. The pictures were so amazing, we had lots of compliments. If you want to bring your self-esteem up, she definitely will help you to. We are so in love with the pictures that we are going to do a photoshoot for each. Definitely, we recommend Alex and her service.

I want to talk, laugh, mess around, build a friendship... and take a few photos whilst we’re at it.
I’m a firm believer that, if you’re looking at a photo of yourself, you can’t help but associate it with the day it was taken. Yes everyone around you might think you look gorgeous, but if you didn’t enjoy the shoot or connect with the photographer then, no matter how amazing your makeup looked or how much your outfit brought out your eyes, your view of yourself in the image is tainted. In order to walk away with images you love, you need to love the experience of having them taken. These aren’t just photos, they’re memories.
