Hello, I'm Jess.


Jess Bartow is a still-life photographer and artist who has been working in commercial and product photography for more than 15 years.  She specializes in photographing jewelry, cosmetics and food. Early in her career she focused on photographing people and enjoys creating portraiture work as well.


Jess’ creative passion for photography led her to study photography, earning a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Photography from S.U.N.Y New Paltz. Her drive for wanting to share her love of photography to others led her to gain a Master’s of Teaching in Art Education from School of Visual Arts.

She currently resides in New York City, creating fine art photography while working in the commercial photography industry. She teaches workshops and private classes in order to share her love for the medium with others. When she is not working in the studio is is often found outside hiking, biking, camping or swimming at the beach.
