Maggi Jones grew up in Canada, and took her first trip at 6 weeks of age. Seeing other places has never lost its appeal and her world photographic portfolio illustrates this. Being an energetic traveller, she has cycled extensively through Central America, across Europe and Australia’s East Coast as well as scuba dived throughout the world, trekked in Nepal, Thailand, and Malaysia and survived local bus journeys throughout Morocco, India and Indonesia.
She now divides her time between London and Andalusia, Spain helping run cycling and active tour company Cycling Country, setting up a new newspaper (Insight Granada), and restoring a 16th century cortijo whilst working with well known British companies with her commercial photography. For photography, the preferred medium is the 35mm, panoramic or digital camera using natural light where possible. Slide, digital, infra red or cross processed films make up her work.
She has a Bachelor of Visual Arts and History and Bachelor of Education with Certified Art Teacher Training from Canadian universities and so her writing captures this desire to inform and interest others in little known places and experiences.
If you would like any further information, such as quotes for photographic or writing work, please contact Maggi.

“From Baked Beans to Borscht – on the Road East” – Writing in progress (2005) is a travelogue on bicycle through ten different countries, all fascinating in their own right, although it must be said some are better bread bakers than others. Pitched at the active traveller or those who prefer their own armchair, in the age range of upwards of 25 years and with a wide experience level, I believe that this book will find growing appeal.
