Jessica A. Suarez
photographer & filmmaker, Jessica Suarez Photography
I tell stories with pictures and video. I have a soft spot for non-profits and collaborative work. I'm most passionate about women's issues, particularly maternal health. I try hard to bring a grounded presence, creative problem-solving and empathetic listening to every set of images or film I create.
Lately, I have been working on conservation projects in the Peruvian Amazon where every day is an adventure and I get to learn something new from the rainforest. However, I just landed in Atlanta again for a few winter months and look forward to working on projects in my hometown.
I have a master's degree in Multimedia, Photography and Design from S.I. Newhouse School of Communications in Syracuse, New York and a bachelor's degree in Cultural Anthropology from Colby College in Waterville, Maine. I have been taking pictures professionally since 2010.
When I'm not making images, I can usually be found in the woods hiking or in the kitchen baking.
My work has been featured The New York Times, Photoville 2015 and ViewFind. Past clients have included The American Legion, SPCA, The Lerner Center - Syracuse University, Amazon Conservation Association and The School for Field Studies.
I am currently in Atlanta, Georgia and available for assignments. I'd love to hear from you!
