Captive Photography is a professional photographers, based in Surrey, run by photographer Jo Hughes. “My passion is taking and developing natural photographs that capture emotion and soul. I believe photography is about much more than just documenting a moment; it is about telling a story and capturing who we are in that moment…

I combine the spontaneity of photojournalism with a small amount of direction to ensure the best light and flattering photos – nothing too staged and posed – my images have a natural and fresh feel.


My success as a professional photographer is as much about my passion to capture the spontaneous moments, as it is about my ability to create images. Subtle guidance is key to natural and relaxed photography.


The real beauty of a photograph is how it tells your story and captures emotions, humanity and soul. To me photography is about capturing something that is happening right now, and making it remarkable. I document everyday life and with that I tell a story.


My photographs can turn the tiniest moments in time into something remarkable. To capture forever the exceptional beauty of everyday family moments, people in love at weddings, and a newborn’s first days, and to show us the sights that might otherwise go unnoticed.

I enjoy sharing the photographs I take just as much as I enjoy creating them. Sit back & take a moment to browse through some of my recent completed work.
