Our Birmingham Innsider: Ross Jukes

Ross Jukes is a Photographer living and working in Birmingham City Centre. Ross shoots a mixture of professional Photography but specialises in Landscapes and Automotive work. When not shooting commercially, Ross can often be found roaming the streets of his home city looking for new angles and vistas to produce more images showing the real beauty of this vibrant hub.

Birmingham is on the up and up. Gone is its reputation as a grey, industrial city and in it’s place are the kind of new, trendy bars and restaurants once reserved for the likes of London. He thinks Birmingham’s renaissance has only just begun and says you can expect the city to go from strength to strength in coming years.
