My name is Tess Burns and I've been a photographer for a few years, headed full force into the artistry universe. Located in Southern California all my life but having a serious case of wanderlust, I'm looking to relocate soon.
I’ve spent the past few years learning anything and everything I could about how to take a beautiful photograph, I've been mentored by some greats, I've assisted, I've studied and I don't intend to stop. Every shoot brings me more knowledge and I'm happiest with a camera in my hand and that artistic flow of energy that you just can't stop.
I'm young, I'm open minded and if passion could be converted into light energy, I’d have enough to light up the planet for decades on end. Photography is what I yearn to do. It's my own love affair-- a romance so strong that sometimes I can barely breathe. I'm exploring every type; from fine art to high fashion to landscapes to editorial to portraiture and so on. I've got an insatiable thirst to learn and create.
Artistically, I'm insanely inspired by people like Diane Arbus, David LaChapelle, Herb Ritts, Mark Seliger, Gregory Colbert, and Annie Leibovitz. I adore working with models, something I plan to do a lot more of over this next year. I'm happy to do TFP shoots but I'm extremely selective on who I collaborate with.
