Conversations with Brooklyn Jones

Today we’d like to introduce you to Brooklyn Jones.

Hi Brooklyn, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
As a 19-year-old black woman just entering freshman year of college at Tennessee State University, I have found a passion and fell in love with photography, I shoot because I find peace in being especially active, It has been the way that I have experienced much of the world.

As a young photographer, Photography allows me to connect with the world around me. For me, it is a huge creative outlet as a way to express myself, With photography, I feel like I am always learning, there’s always a new challenge presenting itself. It relaxes me, it helps me escape from the stress of daily life and the boredom of routine. It calms my nerves and allows me to be present at the moment.

Photography is like meditation for me, and it makes me happy. I believe that when you can do what you love and also make a living from it – this is the best combination. Photography for me is all about personal freedom. It’s a fantastic way to create your own reality. Especially if you’re working with something highly controllable like still life.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall, and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
As a young photographer, my biggest challenge would be figuring out how to run a business.

Every day, I try to learn the ins and outs of the photography business, and I’ve made some mistakes as well as set some great goals for myself, but through it all, I’ve learned that it’s all trial and error, and it’s okay to make mistakes as long as you learn from them.

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I’m Brooklyn Jones, and I’m a photographer.

I began photographing at Tennessee State University with a few shots of my friends and gradually progressed to larger crowds. I’ve photographed Tennessee State University admissions events such as a fashion show, pageant, and TSU royals court.

I am proud of how far I have come with my photography skills from the time I began in February until now, I have seen a significant improvement in my work, and I am proud that I am pursuing my passion for photography.
