Jenny Vest
Jenny first showed an interest in photography at 16 when her family got their first digital camera and at 21 she invested in her first DSLR camera.
She started by documenting family events and as friends started having children, she started documenting their families, gaining experience as a family photographer. Knowing she had knowledge gaps she took on her first photography course at the age of 24.
Over the years she has experimented with various styles and genres doing everything from event photography to more experimental photography including Light Painting and Levitation.
She has taken photos at many prestigious venues and companies over the years including Sage Gateshead and BBC Newcastle.
