Course Coordinator, MA Photography
After graduating in Photography from the Surrey Institute of Art and Design in Farnham, Jesse established a practice as a freelance commercial and editorial photographer, developing a specialism in interior, architectural and landscape photography as well as extensive work in television. Alongside his professional photography, he began contributing essays and reviews to publications including Source, HotShoe International and 1000 Words Photography. Jesse currently contributes regular articles to Photomonitor and is founder and editor of the Perspectives on Place blog. In 2008 Jesse completed an MFA in Documentary Photography at the University of Wales, Newport where he began to fully pursue his research interests in the representation of space and the formation of place. He continues to work on practical projects that examine the land and is the author of Perspectives on Place: Theory and Practice in Landscape Photography (London: Bloomsbury, 2015). Jesse has taught photography extensively and in a range of educational contexts, with a specialism in distance learning and since March 2016 has been Senior Lecturer and Course Coordinator of the MA Photography (online) at Falmouth University.
