Jo de Banzie Awards

Jo describes her work as family documentary; the narrative of family life, rather than the formal posed portrait. She believes it’s important that you’re photographed within the context of your own environment, or somewhere of emotional significance.  This may be your home, the woods you walk the dog in, a favourite beach, the place you escape to.  Jo will happily travel with you to where you feel most at peace.

Shoots usually occupy a day, but depending on the project the sessions may take place over 2 or 3. This provides the opportunity for Jo to observe family life and allow images to unfold and tell your story.

A collaborative approach is essential.  To be informed and excited about the possibilities, the process kicks off with a consultation to discuss style preferences & ideas; is the project about stunning images for the wall, a statement installation, or perhaps a beautiful heirloom album capturing a special time in your children’s lives?  Together you will explore all the options and tailor the commission in a way that’s right for you and the family.
