Esme has been a freelance photographer since 2017 when she decided to pursue a career on the back of receiving two photographic awards in the space of a month. Since making the leap into the freelance world, Esme has built a reputation for producing well thought-out, enigmatic and refreshing images that draw inspiration from nature. Her work looks beyond aesthetic and tries to capture the soul of a person or location. Esme prides herself on having an instinctual approach to photography rather than following a ridged plan or set of rules. This way of operating gives her the space to create meaningful and outstanding pieces of art.
Esme studied Film and TV Production at the University of Westminster (2011-2014) where she nurtured a curiosity in production design. Her efforts as a production designer and art director earned her awards in two short films and the opportunity to work within the film industry. Esme went on to spend 4 years working on feature films both in the UK and Australia. However, her love for film was always second to her love for photography.
Esme was 13 years old when she first picked up her dads DSLR camera, and has since gone on to exhibit in Australia and England, win several awards, get published in magazines and sell her work both at home and abroad.
