'I've followed you since your meteoric rise on purple port' possibly my favourite thing to have heard in 2020.
I'm Tess, 26 year old mother of three living along the southwest coast.
I fell into this industry and it has been the happiest of accidents in my life.
I am very proud to consider this my full time job.
S U M M E R T O U R
I am feeling quietly optimistic my plan for a summer tour through the UK may be possible. For me that means grabbing the kids, the converted van and my shoot wardrobe and leaving on the last day of term time for 4 weeks on the road.
I have provisional dates for
C o r n w a l l B r i s t o l S o u t h W a l e s N o r t h W a l e s L a k e D i s t r i c t M a n c h e s t e r W a r r i c k B r i g h t o n
If you are in these or surrounding areas please do drop me a message to show your interest and see what we can pencil in, Covid restrictions allowing
I am very reliable, committed and enthusiastic to this career. I treat every shoot as a collaboration and enjoy sharing ideas and creating something unique to us. In booking me you can be assured clear and concise pre comms, a productive, positive and creative shoot and a real commitment to delivering you the shots you are after. I'm also pretty great company, annoyingly perky even in an early morning and i'l talk your ear off. you've been warned.
I think my portfolio reflects my ability to adapt to a wide range of genres and create strong and varying emotions within my work. I'm also not precious in the slightest. I shoot on location all year round and will be the first to suggest climbing trees, frolicking in the sea foam, dancing in a water fall or balancing on the rafters.
I almost exclusively shoot barefoot
Please note, as a busy mum of three under five I will not always respond to messages immediately but I will always get back to you, often after 'bed time'
Levels and genres
I shoot up to artistic nude level.
I do not shoot glamour nude, its not for me
I fully understand that slips can happen but should an image include my labia I ask for that to be deleted straight away. Not doing so is beyond my levels.
I particularly enjoy shooting boudoir and nudes in nature, but am very happy to explore a whole range of styles within my work. I have turned my hand to body paint, pin up, bridal and jewellery work (apparently I have fantastic hands, who knew?) and who can underestimate a truely great portrait? so underrated in my opinion
Please note I have raised my rates for 2021, this reflects my growing experience and the effort and ability I bring to every shoot, as well as the skills and time I put into a shoot prior to the start aka hair styling, make up looks, sourcing and styling outfits etc etc
If we have a shoot booked for 2021 I will of course honour the original agreed rate.
For fashion and portrait sessions I charge £35 an hour. Minimum booking two hours.
For all other levels I charge £40 an hour, minimum booking of 2 hours.
My 4 hour rate for all levels is £140
My 8 hour rate for all levels £240
I very rarely shoot TFP. If I need any images on a TFP basis I will most likely reach out personally to a photographer I already have a strong working relationship with.
I may offer to reduce my rates on a part pay/ part TF basis if you have something extra to offer that benefits my portfolio eg a studio, unique location or concept, publication or brand exposure etc etc. I will offer this at my discretion in pre comms
I will ask for reasonable travel expenses however as I drive, these are typically very low and purely to cover the cost of fuel.
I am happy to offer a lift if necessary but please note our shoot time will start when I pick you up, unless if is on my route to the location
I am of slim build, a UK size 6-8, with a strong core. My hair changes with the season and is currently mid length blonde with baby bangs. If you have a preference of straight or curly hair please let me know in re comms.
My eyes are my favourite feature and I have been told they are very emotive with a strong connection to the camera. I have very strong brows and a great big smile.
I do my makeup to a very high standard for every shoot. please let me know if you have a specific look in mind ie cut crease, smokey eye, 'natural' look or a lip colour preference otherwise this will be at my own discretion.
I have a c section scar that is visible on nude shoots. I ask this not to be edited out.
I have a chicken pox scar on my left breast, ad a tattoo in my hip and neck. All of these can be edited out or left in at your choice.
I have both nipples pierced
my left breast is less firm with looser skin (thank you breastfeeding). I know my best angles to minimise this appearance, though you are welcome to touch this up in post if you wish.
I often have bug bites from all the location shoots. People who've worked with me a lot will attest to this too, again you're welcome to air brush these out at your discretion.
As this is my full time job, I have a cancellation policy in place to protect myself financially.
If cancelled within 72 hours I require 50% of the fee. If cancelled within 24 hours I require 100% payment. I will make every effort to reschedule with you in which case I may waive the cancellation fee however as I am often travelling and coinciding many shoots in a day or two day period I have to treat cancellations very seriously.
if your still reading, Thankyou! That is the business of it out the way so now we can get on with the shooting experience I very much hope we are able to work together and please do reach out and say hello. I love connecting with creatives.
Have a fantastic day
