Daily Inspiration: Meet Isaac Jones

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

Hi Isaac, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start, maybe you can share some of your backstories with our readers?
I began working with photography after a family member gave me a camera as a present. From there, I would take my camera everywhere, taking photos of everything and everyone. I would also ask as many questions as possible to any photographer who would listen. Youtube University was my friend in learning, and I still keep trying to learn as much as possible today.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not, what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Smooth is an interesting word. I think I look at it as constantly growing. Sometimes that growth is painful; other times, it is fun, but I want to keep growing regardless. If I am naming some of the “struggles,” I would say I struggle with imposter syndrome. I struggle with that one constantly. I am an achiever and a novice, so those don’t always blend. I didn’t go to school for anything related to photography, so learning the different aspects of crafting a photograph was difficult. There is still so much I want to learn.

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar, what can you tell them about what you do?
I take photographs! Specifically, I think I am halfway decent at taking photographs of people, and I love taking twists on various concepts. I like being creative and trying new things, even if they don’t always work. I love shadows, bright colors, and interesting angles.

I am honestly most proud of my relationships in the last few years and the art I have made with these amazing people. I want to have a reputation of being a good person with whom people want to create. I want people to feel like every shoot they have with me was comfortable, fun, creative, and worth their time. I am proud and thankful to those people who I have gotten to create with over the last few years.

I love music, and while I have no musical ability, it makes me feel like I still get to be part of something I love. Lately, I have been proud to work with local musicians to help capture their vision for their work and brand. My dream is to one day have one of my photographs be on the cover of a Grammy-winning album.

How would we have described you growing up if we knew you were growing up?
I am from Johnson City, Tennessee, but I lived in Nashville for over ten years. Since I was young, I have always had a creative outlet, whether visual art, poetry, music, etc. (even though I would never define myself as “artsy”). I have also always been a collector of information. I love learning new things and diving deep into different topics. I feel like photography combines those two things in my life.
