My photography bug started with a Polaroid camera at a Music Festival in 2008, and I haven’t looked back. I have loved every minute of the journey.
Hi, I am Janhoi Anderson but don’t worry about trying to pronounce it, no one except my family can, so just call me Jay. I am a Photographer based in London who captures weddings and portraits all around the UK & Ireland. I have also been fortunate to photograph weddings further afield, Morocco & North Carolina being my latest ventures.
When describing myself & what is important to me, I always say four F words: Family, Fashion, Friends, & Food.
However, trying to write it down and not come across corny and boring is difficult! so I decided I would do a quick run down about me…
I like making lists.
I love Fashion. Since a young age I always tried to follow the latest trends and styles. Some people might not agree with my fashion sense, but I like it.
I like to smile and laugh, and unlike a true Londoner, I do say hello and smile at strangers on the tube.
Talking about being a Londoner, I was born in Central London, but defected south of the river and haven’t looked back (a big thing if you are a Londoner)
I love to cook and eat deliciously good Food, and love eating out as well. In-particular going to a good steak house!
I love Bakewell Tarts, I really do, but there’s no better way to have it than warm with custard
I love Gin, plus any good gin cocktail. Paired with Friends at a cocktail bar is what I call a Fun night out
I love hats and when I am not photographing a wedding, you’ll usually catch me wearing a baseball cap or a Trilby when I’m drinking gin.
I have been with my partner for over 20 years and still very happy. She is my best friend and I couldn’t do what I do without her.
We have two awesome teenage children (I know, I don’t look old enough), and what talented children we have. I could go on for ever about their achievements, but that would take another three pages.
When I have a couple of hours to myself, you will either find me watching a comedy like Only Fools & Horses (shows my age), The Office (UK & USA versions), Brooklyn nine-nine, Parks & Recreation or a good Mafia film/TV show.
I started studying Aerospace Engineering at University before switching to Fashion Buying and Merchandising Management, quite a difference hey?!
After 10 years in Fashion Buying, and working for the likes of Harvey Nichols, Selfridges and House of Fraser, my path led me to photography.
