Tammy Jaqueline is a Glaswegian portrait photographer based in the city of Bristol.
Inspired greatly by the fashion and cinema aesthetics of her youth Tammy has always found solace in the arts. Whether it be taking photography classes at The Glasgow School of Art, immersing herself in the Indie Sleaze culture of the early 00's or modelling for many years before becoming a photographer herself, Tammy and Photography have always been intertwined.
After over half a decade of travelling the world, living in bustling locations such as Hong Kong and Bangkok, Tammy finally found home in Bristol where she has lived for the last 10 years raising a family with her husband and two children. During this time Tammy once again began modelling and it was through this that she finally purchased a camera and started taking images herself. It was an instant pull for Tammy who soon put modelling aside to focus on photography in more depth. Completely self taught Tammy has built, over the past 5 years , a popular photography business that specialises in Headshot and Portrait photography with a thriving and diverse client base.
Tammy also has a strong body of work in taking self portraits which she started as a way to learn the basics of photography but now uses as a way of creating conceptual works that look at themes such as identity, feminism and sexuality.
Tammy's photography is bold, dramatic and flamboyant. She is greatly inspired by the cinematography of early 90's Baz Luhrmann, the stylistic images of womanhood created by Juno Calypso and the raw honesty of Nancy Goldin.
Tammy is available for freelance work and commissions.
“I updated my headshots with Tammy and it was a fabulous experience from start to finish. She carefully went over with me what I wanted to achieve and what to expect prior to the shoot. The shoot itself was fun and relaxed and her editing skills are top notch. Delighted I chose her and thoroughly recommend to all!”
