Namaste, and G’day.
I'm Tom Jones, a creative Photographer & Director, Tantra Hatha teacher, and Kirtanist based in the beautiful Queenstown, New Zealand.
My infatuation with photography started soon after purchasing my first SLR in 2010, and both my passion for the still image, and my portfolio, have been growing with strength ever since. Being particularly interested in the raw, unpolished elements of nature, and the beauty in meeting strangers, I especially enjoy adventure, portrait and event photography.
Since 2010, when I graduated from Liverpool John Moores University with a BA(hons) Film Studies degree, I've Directed and Produced a huge variety of commercial video campaigns and broadcast television programmes for the BBC, ABC, Channel 4, Rufus Du Sol, Flight Facilities, Air New Zealand, Adobe, Amazon, Red Bull, Disney Channel, and countless local businesses across Australia, New Zealand, and the UK. From pre-production, through script-writing, into production, and into post, I’ve extensive experience throughout the whole creation process of many visual mediums, primarily video and photography.
Since 2016, I’ve completed over 400hrs of Yoga teacher training, both in Vinyaya and Tantra Hatha styles. I have taught at studios in Australia and New Zealand, with my primary base being at the multi-award winning, $30million wellness retreat, Aro Ha. I also lead Kirtan, musical meditation, at various locations around the world.
I am trained in trauma-sensitive yoga, I’m a qualified massage therapist, and a keen writer.
Outside of my professional life, I'll be found with a camera around my neck, photographing characters on the street, or I’ll be in a yoga studio, or on a mountain-side.
Nice to meet you.
