Sam Jones is a successful photographer who has translated his passion behind the lens into a career in front of the camera. The host of "Off Camera with Sam Jones" sits down with Alyssa Julya Smith to talk about some of his best interviews and how he prepares for his DIRECTV show.

The intimate interview series features conversations with some of the most iconic artists, actors, musicians, and directors of our time, and sheds light on what makes these individuals prolifically creative.

Jones talks about how the show allows guests to talk about their craft, their process, their path, and their opinions in a relaxed environment while allowing enough time for in-depth conversation.

Jones discusses why he decided to get into interviewing and the reason he shoots all of his interviews in black and white. He says the minimalistic approach peels away all the noise and cuts right to the heart of the conversation.
