Tesni Ward, Senior Photographer
Workshop & Tour coordinator
As an avid lover of all things nature, I have always had a passion for the great outdoors and the wildlife within it. It felt only natural to pick up a camera to capture the wonderful things I saw from my perspective.
When I’m not behind the camera, I run photography and processing workshops for all levels of experience. I also participate in talks at camera clubs, events & venues, covering many different aspects of my work and methodology. I have an extreme passion and enthusiasm for photography which I hope comes across to anyone who speaks with or works with me.
