Zenfolio | Brian Jones | About

Welcome to my website.

Let me introduce myself.  My name is Brian Jones and I live in Canberra Australia. 

I am continually fascinated by the world around me, which is reflected in my diverse and ever-changing photographic interests. These include travel, nature, people, sport, photojournalism and architecture.  I have a Graduate Diploma in Visual Art (Photography and Media Arts) from ANU School of Art.

I have won over 170 awards in major international photographic competitions, including:

  • winner, Australian Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year, monochrome category;
  • six winner awards, three runner up and one third place in various categories of the annual Pollux Awards;
  • second place in the International Color Awards;
  • third place in the Black and White Spider Awards;
  • eleven images and a portfolio short-listed in the Wildlife Photographer of the Year awards.

I have had two shared solo exhibitions: ANU Graduate Exhibition (A glass half full: portraits of an age ), March 2009; and Bowerbird Central at Hugh Davies Gallery, June 2012; and also exhibited at the 3rd International Biennial of Fine Art and Documentary Photography, in Malaga, Spain, 2014, the 4th Biennial in Berlin 2016 and at Valid Foto Gallery in Barcelona, 2017.  The photos from these exhibitions are displayed in the Galleries.  I have also participated in two curated exhibitions at the Canberra Museum and Gallery and around twenty group exhibitions.  

I am a member of the Canberra Photographic Society (CPS), including President 2010-12 and have won numerous CPS awards, including: Photographer of the Year 2013: four Image of the Year awards; the Hedda Morrison Print Portfolio Award, 2011; as well as many Highly Commended Awards in these annual competitions.

Best wishes and I hope you enjoy the site.
