Artistic photographer’s striking images now available in response to public demand

A photographer has opened an online shop for people to buy his striking images of Derby and other places to satisfy public requests.

Matthew Jones Photography has now put a section on its website showing a selection of images that people can buy as large framed prints or smaller digital images for banners on corporate websites or for marketing.

Jones has been interested in photography for 20 years, during which he gained his BA in photography and Masters degree in fine art photography at the University of Derby, and for the past four years has had a studio and office at the university Banks’ Mill centre for new businesses on Bridge Street.

He has taught photography at the university, currently has an exhibition of his work at the Royal Derby Hospital and will soon have another show displaying his skills at the RTC business park on London Road.

Jones is also a town councillor in Ripley.

His main commercial work is public relations, corporate portraits and pictures of people, places and events.

Jones’ work has appeared in newspapers, and been used by various organisations, including Marketing Derby to attract investment into the city, enterprise agency Erewash Partnership, and the BBC.

Business manager Cindy Underwood said: “We have had people ask where they can buy Matthew’s images which is why we have set up the online shop.”

Many of the images show dramatic panoramic scenes of Derby landmarks such as the Market Place or Irongate and the Cathedral by day or night.

But Underwood pointed out the “secret” as to why they look so special – busy city scenes yet hardly any people on the streets.

Instead of simple snapshots Matthew will take a series of pictures which are then seamlessly “stitched” together or merged to create one image.

Underwood added: “Matthew can spend hours out in all weathers painstakingly waiting for the right moments to get the pictures for the desired effect.”

Jones said: “I am delighted that people have expressed such an interest in the images. This is another addition to what we offer.”
