Eiko Jones Photography
Presenting unique portrayals of our world through the lens of a camera. Specializing in dramatic underwater and topside images.
As an award winning Canadian underwater photographer Eiko 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 based 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 have become a central driving theme for Eiko.
Eiko regularly 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 migrating salmon and various other dive travel opportunities. Click here to go to Salmon Safari/ Canyon Diving website.
