About Tess

Tess is an independent creative photographer with a focus on documentary photography, which she combines with music (documentary) photography and portraiture. Despite her creative mind, she received her bachelor of Criminology in 2014. Apart from her passion for photography, she is also a writer and a wanderlust by heart.

She attempts to document the world around her through photographs and written word. Through her work, she desires to photograph 'the moments in between'. Highlights don't interest her as much as the journey and the process towards it. This explains her desire to capture glimpses of private or humble moments.

She aims to work with people who share her passion for the creative arts and has been fortunate enough to have worked with numerous bands, people and organisations who match that zeal and eagerness.

Tess is based in the Amsterdam area, but works throughout the country. she’s also available worldwide.
