Hello, my name is Tammy and I am the eyes behind the lens here at Tamography!
I am a travelling music photographer based in Leeds. As a believer that music really does take you back to a moment in time, I decided I wanted to capture those moments not just for myself but for the amazing artists I work with. If you like my work and want to get creative with me please don’t hesitate to contact me.
