Jody Mitchell has always had a flare for creativity, a love for photography, and a strong interest in developing skills within image editing software. With a background in Computer Arts, it wasn’t long before she would eventually introduce her passion and hobby, photography, into her career path.

After Completing an Honours Degree in Computer Arts and a Postgraduate Degree in The Scottish Internship Graduate Certificate she began working within the creative sector, at a graphic design company, as an intern. Her position involved a variety of creative tasks but she found that those focusing on photography to be the most inspiring. After a short time this inspiration fuelled the passion to study photography in all its forms.

Jody has successfully completed a range of photography courses and is now studying BA Design and Creativity with the ultimate goal to start up her own photography business in 2015. With a creative mind, sound photographic abilities, excellent customer service skills, and keen business sense Jody is always willing to tackle any challenge.
