Meet The Valley Photographer: Dajuana Jones

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

Dajuana, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I’ve been obsessed with photography ever since I was a little girl! My very first camera with a polaroid. I would nail my mother’s bed sheets to the wall and forced my little brother to get all dressed up and make him stand on it and take pictures with my Polaroid! I took several photography courses in high school and in college, then in 2007 I started my own photography business specializing in fashion photography and TV film!

Has it been a smooth road?
Photography is my passion just being in the field brings me excited! The bigger the challenge the better the session! My biggest struggle would be keeping up with the expensive equipment year after year thank goodness for income tax checks! Another challenge is getting your work out there to be seen by the eyes of Millions! Social media has been a huge help!

What’s your outlook for the industry over the next 5-10 years?
I think in the next 5-10 years the photography industry will be more advanced! A time will come where we will be able to interact with still images like you can touch and object on the images and it becomes motion, or 3d photography, 360 photography & virtual reality images!

What has been the primary challenge you’ve faced?
My biggest challenge is getting my work out there in front of millions of eyeballs! I feel like if more of the world seen my work then I would be more successful in the photography industry! I haven’t quite figured out the science behind marketing on social media! I’m an artist I just want to create beautiful compelling images which is my strength! Marketing and promoting is my weakness!!

What would you tell someone who is just starting out?
Love what you do and don’t it for the money! Do it for the Joys! Don’t worry, the money will be automatic! Let your passions lead you! Use your Imagination to create your Ideas, stay positive and likable and don’t get caught up hiding behind your computer, get out there and network, network, network!!!
