ARTIST IN FOCUS

TEE

I’m a 25, Freelance Creative Director and Photographer based in London. Everyone calls me Tee.
I first started my iPhone photography journey almost 4 years ago. I was a bit hesitant on the outcome but after receiving such amazing feedback via Instagram I haven’t looked back ever since. I'm currently using the iPhone 11 Pro Max, where I shoot, edit all the images and videos using apps as such Snapseed and Protake. Being able to work for and alongside other creatives within the music, arts and fashion industry has been a great challenge as I get to show them that iPhones can be as good as DSLR cameras when used correctly. There have been a few bumps in my journey where I've been looked down on or questioned as in why I don’t use a ‘professional’ camera anymore or hire someone to take my pictures. That maybe I should just stick to being a Creative Director. To me photography is art, and I believe there’s no right or wrong when it comes to creating it. I always try to believe in my work no matter what others might feel about it. We all know how competitive it is in the creative industry, so I do throughly enjoy being different and standing out. So I guess you can say my aim to make things visually pleasing to the eye, especially with the use of my editing techniques. I like to experiment with double exposure, close up detailing and layouts. My concept creation starts with either a subject, colour, music, feeling or style which is made into a mood board. Once that’s done I tend to keep that idea in mind during my editing process, pushing the boundaries with the styles by giving it some character and flair. My layouts and editing style is my favourite part of the process, I believe it’s something you might not see everyday which I enjoy. This is why I always say attention to detail is very crucial!
I am looking forward to the new year! I've got some big projects in the works that I’m excited to show as well as some showcases and exhibitions that I’m hoping to start soon! @teecreatesvisions
