A little bit about the woman behind the camera...
Jessica Vaini is a photographer, videographer and school teacher, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts/Graduate Diploma of Education (Secondary) with a double major in Media and Journalism.
Based in Perth, Western Australia, I've has been working in the photography industry for over 5 years. Whilst I specialise in Live Music Photography and Band Promo Photography, I occasionally provide my services to commercial businesses and I enjoy capturing special events such as weddings and functions.
I've had a particular passion for Live Music Photography for the past 5 years. It all started when I took my camera to a local heavy metal gig here in Perth. At this point, I'd been attending gigs for many years, but didn't really know anyone in the music scene, nor had I ever taken a photo of a band on a DSLR camera. I took photos for free to "see how I'd go", and I absolutely loved it. It was from that moment on that I knew that this was what I wanted to do, and I have strived to be the best photographer I can be ever since that day. My aim is to become a full time touring music photographer. Let's work together one day so that I can make that happen!
In 2019, I was nominated as a national finalist in the annual Australian Women in Music Awards (AWMA) in the category of Music Photographer.
Throughout my career, I am proud to say that I have photographed some of the world's biggest heavy metal acts, which is currently published online via Heavy Magazine and The Rockpit.
I am now taking bookings to go on tour as a photographer & videographer in 2020.
