Jess Bonham is a London based still life photographer and director, whose conceptual approach to still life balances a love of colour with luxurious textures and sculptural forms. Her bold, bright, and often humorous work touches upon the world of sculpture and installation, finding new forms of beauty through narrative, intrigue and playful juxtapositions.
With a background in Illustration and prop making, Jess originally focused her enthusiasm for storytelling within photo-based collages. From there she developed and adapted her techniques to build sets entirely in- camera, regardless of scale and complexity. She has honed her technical skills to apply a consistent methodology across stills, stop-frame and full motion projects, enabling her to seamlessly adapt to briefs that span across multiple formats.
Jess has applied her bold and playful aesthetic to collaborations with some of the worlds biggest brands in fashion, beauty, publishing and advertising, including Hermès, Kenzo, MiuMiu, Armani, Jo Malone, Nike, Jaguar, Vogue, Vanity Fair, The Gourmand, Twin, Port and Another.
