Hi, I'm Jess.


I tell stories with pictures, video and audio. I am partial to non-profits and collaborative work and enjoy in-depth documentary storytelling. I'm most passionate about environmental projects and women's issues, particularly maternal health. I work hard to bring a grounded presence, creative problem-solving and empathetic listening to every set of images or film I create.

Lately, I have been working on conservation projects in the Peruvian Amazon where every day is an adventure and I get to learn something new from the rainforest and the people who call it home.

I have a master's degree in Multimedia, Photography and Design from S.I. Newhouse School of Communications in Syracuse, New York and a bachelor's degree in Cultural Anthropology from Colby College in Waterville, Maine. I have been taking pictures professionally since 2010.

When I'm not making images, I can usually be found hiking a new trail, cooking for friends and family, getting lost in good fiction or learning something new from a podcast.

My work has been featured The New York Times, Photoville 2015 and ViewFind. Past clients have included The American Legion, SPCA, The Lerner Center - Syracuse University, Amazon Conservation Association and The School for Field Studies.


I am currently in Atlanta. Please connect with me below!
