Jo Plumridge is a British photographer, writer and lecturer, covering the Home Counties and London. She first picked up a camera aged ten and has been taking photographs ever since.

After graduating from university with an honours degree in Photography and Media, Jo worked in television and production marketing for several years. She then emigrated to Botswana, Africa to work as a photographer for a nature reserve. On her return to England, she set up as a freelance photographer – specialising in corporate, personal and editorial portraiture along with a healthy dose of travel work!

In the last decade, Jo has taken photographs for a wide variety of clients. She also writes photographic, travel and humorous articles for a number of websites and magazines, and lectures at several private London colleges. She has travelled extensively throughout Europe, Africa, Australia, New Zealand and North America, and has written numerous articles as well as a book about her travels.

Jo is now settled in South East England, where she lives with her husband and step-daughter (who gives her plenty of practice in photographing children!). She offers a personal, friendly and reasonably priced portrait service, and particularly enjoys working with families to produce beautiful and contemporary portraiture.
