Tess is a Brighton based artist, photographer and educator, lives close to the South Downs and shares her home with her husband and two children.
For the last 25 years, her freelance career has ranged from providing headshots for actors, comedians, students, business owners, and managing directors, from fashion, interiors, couples on their wedding day to brand imagery. More recently she has worked with schools and colleges to create fresh, bright images of pupils and students for promotion and web content.
She developed a passion for naturalistic and personal photography and since becoming a mother in 2010, realised the importance of capturing and honouring the fleeting moments of childhood, which seem to pass with a blink of an eye. This led her to photograph intimate family moments and also specialise in pregnancy, family and newborn photography.
Tess has a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, where she specialised in sculpture and installation and completed a Masters in Photography at Brighton University. In 2007 she began teaching photography and art and design and has a real passion to share her knowledge and techniques, helping students thrive creatively. Tess continues to do so along side her freelance work and personal art practice.
