ABOUT JO RUTHERFORD PHOTOGRAPHY
get to know us a little better!
PHOTOGRAPHY IS ABOUT CAPTURING SOULS NOT SMILES
I‘ve been a Photographer now for about 8 years – what started as a hobby has turned into a wonderful business and I truly love what I do , prior to this I was a Physiotherapist working in the NHS and then a University Lecturer and photography was therapy , a reason to head out away from the computer and into the fresh air , a way of being creative and doing something completely different.
The hobby became something more as I became immersed in the world of Photography and now I’m incredibly lucky to find that my passion is also my job . I’m mainly a Studio photographer and have a wonderful base in the Village of Banks in West Lancashire, with lots of space for my ever increasing collection of sofas and props! I love styling photoshoots as I truly believe that you , your children and even your dog are unique and your photoshoot should be too – using a Vintage chair , or sofa or a different backdrop that compliments your style.
But that doesnt mean that I dont head outside now and again for photoshoots! As a Photographer based in beautiful West Lancashire , I have stunning locations almost on my doorstep and Haigh Hall , Rivington , and Fairy Glen are popular locations . I am also incredibly close to Southport and the beautiful beaches and the woods at Formby and Ainsdale are also great places for photoshoots
