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 this 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, underwater photography of Pacific Salmon has become one of his primary objectives. 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 of British Columbia that they return to has become a central driving theme for Eiko.
