Bess Friday, is a San Francisco based Commercial & Fine Art Photographer.
A childhood filled with road trips through the American South fostered her desire to pick up her first camera. Travel has always inspired and informed her work. From living in France and Italy to traveling as a personal assistant for a pop singer on a world-wide tour, this early exposure to other cultures, places & people helped inform her eye. As a result, the camera became her vehicle for interpreting the world. She earned a degree in Art & Advertising from Pepperdine University and further honed her eye studying photography in Italy at SACI University and NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts.
Bess’s fresh, light-filled images garnered attention from both the fashion and interior design world. It landed her jobs shooting for major fashion brands like Kate Spade & Anthropologie along with published works in Architectural Digest, Elle Magazine & Elle Decor among others.
Her latest Solo Exhibition: With Reverence explores moments of spiritual serenity. Currently on display at The House, 3307 Sacramento St. San Francisco, CA
