Maddy Alewine (Maddy Jones) fell in love with photojournalism while studying international relations at Syracuse University. After graduating with degrees in both subjects, she started her professional career as a community photojournalist at daily newspapers in the South. Telling stories while exploring the rich history and diversity of rural communities in the Carolinas has been her greatest privilege and honor.

After nearly five years of working full-time in newspapers, Maddy now tells visual stories for Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity. Outside of her housing advocacy work, she shoots for a variety of commercial, editorial and documentary clients.

When Maddy doesn’t have a camera in her hand, she can be found hiking through Southern Appalachia with her husband and dog, cooking, enjoying art, trying to garden well, and yelling at Phillies ball games.

Maddy is currently available for freelance assignments.
