Growing up in Cranford, New Jersey, Mike Jones never anticipated becoming a professional landscape photographer when he grew up.
At the age of 10, Jones’s father taught him how to use his old Pentax SLR camera, which is where the journey began. By the time he graduated from high school, Jones had begun using a 4×5 Grafix camera. He would use this camera, and a tripod, to take photos of the Rocky Shores in Maine during his summer vacations. He eventually got a job at a small weekly newspaper as the staff photographer. While working, he realized how much he truly loved photography and decided to major in it at college. After college, he moved on to a much bigger newspaper in Bricktown, NJ.
Mike worked for The Coast Star Newspaper for 6 years. In 2001, he decided it was time to leave. He wanted to travel around the country, and get the desire to travel out of his system. He spent three months, camping around the United States and visiting 18 National Parks. He realized that he could never go back. Jones sold his house and bought himself a large motor home to travel the country, and spend his days taking photographs of landscapes and nature. While Jones has a large variety of photographs from his newspaper days, landscape photography has always been his true love. To this day, his home is wherever the camera takes him!
