To say Peter Jones was born with a camera in his hand may be a slight exaggeration but like many children of his age he started with a box brownie moving to a brownie 127 and then into SLRs with an early Mamyia.
He was never seen in his hometown of Warwick without a camera and whilst still at school undertook professional training with Percy Inkester an old school portrait photographer.
He sold his first picture, a rather dramatic car crash, to the Warwick Advertiser for twenty one shillings and spent many evenings taking pictures of the fast emerging music scene in the Midlands.
Sadly on leaving school at the height of the swinging sixties when every Tom, Dick and David Bailey wanted to be a photographer he opted for the somewhat steadier route of banking.
Though he never stopped taking photographs, all of which he still has in his extensive Library, on selling his first house in Warwick he bought his first professional camera, a mighty Pentax which lasted him all 33 years until he fell in the harbour at Saint Tropez with it round his neck.
This caused him to move into the digital age, which his keen eye for a photograph and extensive training in digital and Photoshop techniques by award winning Master Photographer Christopher Bradbury has seen him build up an impressive portfolio of clients.
These include The Inn at Farnborough, BBC TV South, ITV Meridian, The Four Shires Magazine, A leading London Restaurant and many others both private and commercial.
