Introducing Ty Jones!
Originally from Plainfield, NJ, Ty currently resides in Richmond, VA where he works as a professional actor, model, and photographer.
Ty has been doing photography since the 9th grade! He recently found a passion for being on the other side of the camera as well.
“I had no aspirations to even THINK about modeling”… until it was recommended by a friend in 2018. Ty speaks of how he got started in his modeling career on the latest episode of Conversations from the Garden of Cree’den.
Acting is another skill and passion of Ty’s that came about somewhat by chance. After seeing the movie Creed (and hearing his favorite rapper Tupac on the soundtrack), Ty decided that he wanted to be in the sequel.
