photography

jodine williams

I am a self-taught photographer and have been working for about 2 years. I have worked with poets, fashion bloggers, models and brands to create amazing content. Fashion/street style, portrait and events are my main focus and these allow me to work with a wide range of individuals.

As a photographer I believe strongly in having quality photos to showcase whatever story the client has in mind. I do this while adding my own creative input if needed. 

I have rates for an hour and a half, four hour and monthly sessions. My starting rate is £70.  Visit her website and email info@shotbyjo.com to make an enquiry.
