Dennis Jones has been capturing a wide variety of photographic images, personally and professionally, for more than 30 years.
Educated in Journalism, Mass Communications and Advertising at the University of California at Berkeley, Dennis enjoyed a thirteen-year career in the live entertainment industry, serving as a Production Director and Stage Manager for renowned concert promoter Bill Graham Persents. This provided Dennis with the opportunity for extensive travel and a rare access to people and places, well-known and not, of varied cultures and life experiences. He retired from live event production for good in 1989, and in 1992, Dennis moved to Walla Walla, Washington, where in 1996, headed the Internet start-up, Madison Avenue West, a web design and Internet marketing concern which helped to create that region's now-flourishing Internet presence.
Dennis returned in 2010 to his 'home of homes', Northern California, where he currently serves as the principal and lead photographer behind Affordable Portraits ( www.wix.com/daj0410/ap ), a digital photography studio which provides high quality Portrait and Event photography services at a reduced, 'affordable' price, to the ever-aware and expanding economic demographic currently navigating a seriously weakened economy. In addition, Dennis also freelances his talents to print and Internet publications, area sports franchises, and corporate entities.
Dennis is single, constantly active in a myriad of community and volunteer endevours, and is an enthusiastically obsessive fan of his Defending World Champion San Francisco Giants baseball club. He considers among the most valuable and fulfilling experiences of his life; the decade during which he raised his nephew and (within that same time frame) his six years with five step-children from a now-former marriage.
