Growing up in a creative family between England and Australia, Tara initially studied painting, earning her BA (Hons) in Fine Art at Winchester School of Art. After graduating in 1995 she moved to London and spent four years learning the business as a photographer’s assistant.
Tara has been working as a photographer for over ten years. Her commissions have taken her across the world, and she is as comfortable on location abroad as in her studio at home. She has photographed numerous books, contributes regularly to magazines and works for many design and advertising agencies. Tara manages to address both the commercial demands of a competitive industry whilst retaining her artist’s vision and her own unique, visual sensibility.
Tara lives in London with her partner, two daughters and black cat.
"Tara is one of this country’s leading photographers. She has this wonderful energy and passion for what she does, and she thrives on my busy shoots. She always gets the best from the food and the people she works with, and she won’t stop until she feels she has the perfect picture. Tara has a great eye for detail and composition - I love her style and creativity. She is charming and utterly professional, and my team and I love working with her"
Working with Tara was a complete delight. She is a perfectionist and produced the most beautiful photography for me. She completely understood what I wanted from the shots, as well as encompassing what she thought would look good . What’s more, we had the most brilliant time together - it felt more like a holiday than work."
