MEET THE WOMAN

BEHIND THE CAMERA

Choosing to invest in yourself, document your legacy and celebrate your existence on this planet with scroll-stopping visual stories is the most rebellious act of self-love. You deserve to feel powerful. You deserve to be seen. The only validation you need to feel worthy of taking up space on this planet is your own.

Ready to take the next step in your empowerment journey, gorgeous? I’m waiting for your call.

BEHIND THE CAMERA

Hello, gorgeous! I’m Tigz Rice and I’m an empowering photographer, videographer, content creator, and one of the biggest girl geeks you’ll ever meet. I live in Hertfordshire UK with my awesome husband James, and there’s a high chance that when you meet me I’ll be dressed head to toe in either pink or leopard print

(Fun fact: This was the day I found out I’m allergic to lavender)

MY FAVOURITE THINGS

My two main passions in life (apart from hoping the universal cat distribution system picks me next!) are collecting vintage cameras and travelling the world. In 2019 I fell in love with Japan and I’m currently planning my third trip. I also speak Japanese at an intermediate level and I’m always looking for people to practise with!

ORIGIN STORY

My photography career started in 2009, in the dazzling, extraordinary world of burlesque photography. I fell in love with the copious amounts of glitter and the unwavering support these incredible performers have for each other. A community where bodies of all shapes, genders, sizes and ethnicities are celebrated. Becoming a member of the burlesque community showed me that beauty thrives in confidence. Upon this realisation, my life goal became clear: to help fearless humans feel empowered, confident and unapologetically present in both their personal and professional adventures – documenting their journey with beautiful visual stories.

Empowering others has always been at the heart of what I do, and as word of my ability to lift other’s self-worth and confidence in front of my camera spread beyond the niche of the burlesque community into wider circles, I soon found myself exploring the world of boudoir photography, travelling across Europe with my signature style of editorial quality portraiture. Around this time, I also started shooting campaigns for some incredible brands at the forefront of championing diversity and inclusion within the fashion industry. Huffpost called the 2016 Scantilly for Curvy Kate editorial I shot ‘one of the world’s most inclusive underwear campaigns’.

Clothes on or off, my superpower is to make you feel your most authentic self in front of the camera, and in 2020, after significant demand, I launched my empowering personal branding photography services. Elevating the experience of professional portraiture, I love nothing more than helping others step into their power and show up consistently with fresh, authentic content that perfectly portrays their unique personality, style and values.
