Eiko Jones Photography presents unique portrayals of our world.  Specializing in dramatic and surreal images from above and below the suface of the water. 
As an award winning  Canadian underwater photographer he strives to capture the natural and human world in a way that inspires and motivates people to appreciate and care about the planet we call home.


With a big emphasis on water photography, images of mountains, lakes, rivers, and oceans and the salmon, trout and other life forms that inhabit these areas make up a lot of Eiko Jones’ body of work. While all aspects of the natural world are of interest, Pacific Salmon have become one of his primary subjects. Living in Campbell River has it’s advantages as it is centered in prime Salmon habitat and all five species of salmon  make their way into the surrounding rivers each year. The salmon and the watersheds that they return to has become a central driving theme for Eiko.

His Gallery in Campbell River features a large selection of underwater and landscape images, many in very large format style. Drop in for a look or to find out about the other services offered such as Dog Portraits in the water,  Commercial Photography and Environmental Modelling.


Eiko also hosts photography workshops and lessons. Both topside and underwater workshops are offered throughout the year.    He also leads dive trips in rivers on Vancouver Island to view and photograph migrating salmon and various other dive travel opportunities.               Click here to go to Salmon Safari/ Canyon Diving website.

All Five Species of Pacific Salmon

Feeling satisfied after completing 4 fantastic days of personal salmon photography guiding in which we found and photographed all 5 Pacific Salmon Species. With a very talented UW Photographer From Italy, David Salvatori, we explored various rivers around Quadra Island and North Vancouver Island. Here is a pic of each species. In order Chinook, Pink, Chum, Coho, Sockeye. This time of year is the best for the abundance of varieties. The weather can be challenging but we got it right over the last few days.    ... read more

Remote Camera Trials

I am trying out some new techniques to filming in sensitive or potentially dangerous settings. With some Kiwi Ingenuity I adapted my UW Camera housing to take a Wifi adapter so I can remotely tether to a tablet. This way I can leave the camera in place in the river and sit on the shore and operate it. On my third trial and about 5 hours of waiting I got some decent images of a Black Bear at the edge of the River. Now to get some salmon in the foreground water at the same time.... read more

Seaperch increasing in numbers.

I was diving in Tahsis Narrows a few days ago and spent quite a lot of time photographing the multitude of Seaperch. Three species including Pile Perch, Kelp Perch and Striped Surfperch were predominant. I have been noticing a lot of perch lately when I have been diving.  After posting a few pictures today I had a couple other people respond saying that they have noticed a lot more in their areas, ( Vancouver and Barkley Sound). This has led to some discussion about whether or not they are increasing due to some particular reason. Has the recent die off of Seastars over the last couple years shifted the balance in favour of these species? Or is it something else? I would be interested to hear from anyone who knows more about this or who has witnessed similar trends in their area. Pile Perch, Damalichthys vacca, swimming in the kelp forest.             Kelp Perch, Brachyistius frenatus,  in the sanctuary of the undulating Kelp Forest.... read more

Blue Shark Encounter

On August 2nd we had an amazing adventure. 14 miles off the West Coast of Vancouver Island we had incredible encounters with Blue Sharks. These Pelagic sharks come in close on the warm currents to feed on fish and squid. We chummed the water with salmon carcasses in a bag and then jumped in the water with them when the first one showed up.            ... read more
