Jessica Bosse

About Jessica:
Before becoming a photographer, I was en route to complete a PhD in music cognition and neuroscience. I found myself searching for something that moved and evoked me in ways academics did not. I withdrew from the program, started the business and made the leap into self-employment.

My spare time is spent camping, hiking, and dreaming up new travel locations. I try to capture things a little differently: the organic, fleeting, intangible moments. Straying from tradition, I’m not about heavily posed photographs or long-winded shot lists. I look for in-between moments and pretty light in unexpected places and strive for perfection in creating emotional and organic images that tell a story.

Tell us what your one must-have piece of gear is and why:
My 50mm 1.4D is my favourite lens. It focuses quickly, is lightweight and rarely leaves my camera body.

Tell us what your one must-have piece of software is and why:
Lightroom is definitely an irreplaceable piece of software that I value. I'm able to cull and edit with ease and it makes my workflow seamless.

Provide one tip you wish you knew when you were first starting out:
Go with your gut and don't be afraid to take chances. Every person sees things differently; harness this into your own style. Every great painter, musician, artist, photographer were once beginners. They took risks, made mistakes and in the end created beautiful work.
