Janae Jones

Janae Jones is a photographer based in Brooklyn, NY from Seattle, WA. She studied and fell in love with photography at Seattle University, where she obtained my Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2009. Her background is in documentary work; spending the first 6 years of her career documenting the local hip-hop music and fashion scene in Seattle and what was coined "third wave" hip-hop. After years of photographing live performances, taking press photos, and creating images for album art, she decided that she wanted to try something new. In 2012, she moved to New York to find new inspiration, to further develop her style, and to continue to learn. She began her career as a freelance photo assistant and digital technician working for photographers with a variety of focuses that helped expand on and fine tune her personal work. She now focuses primarily on lifestyle and family portraiture.
