Eiko Jones Photography presents unique portrayals of our world through the lens of a camera. 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 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, 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 of British Columbia 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 Licensing and Environmental Modelling.
Eiko also hosts photography workshops and lessons. Both topside and underwater workshops are offered throughout the year.
