My Occupation Retired
My Bio Jay-Dee was hooked from an early age when she learned how to develop photos with her father in his darkroom. She takes great pleasure in sharing her photos with friends, and on several occasions, close friends have asked her to be the photographer of a special event in their life. She has published a few photography books, either for friends or just as a way to document a personal memory. There isn’t one thing that draws her to photography: she likes to create memories; she enjoys learning; she enjoys new challenges – she can achieve this through her photography. She is totally fascinated with how she can trap light, shadows and colour in a permanent image and then view that moment in time, repeatedly. She has no ambition to become a professional photographer – she just enjoys taking photos.

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
My next book? You have to be kidding, right? I have so many ideas and projects and they can change from day-to-day depending on what new adventure passes by me.
