About Ruth Jenkinson

Ruth Jenkinson is a London-based people photographer who shoots in the UK, Europe and the USA for advertising, editorial and lifestyle clients.

“Ruth is a superb photographer both technically and creatively and a delight to work with. Her lighting is second to none. She handles models with great care and sensitivity which ensures we get the photographs we need. She works extremely hard and goes the extra mile until she gets the right result. Her cheerful personality and calm approach make the shoots go smoothly and enjoyably. I trust her to get the photographs I am looking for with her special skill and flair."

"We book Ruth directly which enables her to work within tight budgets for us. Her lighting is fabulous, her people skills superb and she is a Baby Whisperer!"

Ruth has recently completed a worldwide campaign for a Procter and Gamble product, shot a babies knitwear book, cookbooks for Ideal Home and Waitrose, and a beautiful glossy hardback called 'Diva Dogs' (yes - dogs!).


Ruth is happy to be involved with all stages of pre-production, bringing experience to the decisions needed for choice of locations, models, hair and make-up artists, stylists and more.  For large library shoots she works closely with a production company who provide design and art direction services.

Having used both large and medium format cameras with film, Ruth's choice of digital camera is the Canon EOS5D Mk1V

She uses her own Broncolor and Elinchrom lighting  for most jobs .
