Biography

Trish Tunney is a professional photographer who lives and works in San Francisco. She has been voraciously making pictures since she was given her first camera in 1979.

Trish received a Masters Degree in Engineering and spent 15 years working as a Computer Engineer. When she left her first career to pursue photography professionally, her extensive technical background made for a natural progression from the wet darkroom to digital photography where she has also become a master fine art printer.

Her photography is about shadows and contrast more than objects. Because of this, the quality of light is crucial. She seeks out the directional light of early day or early evening where colors, both light and dark, are at their most exaggerated. She is drawn to bits of urban decay and endeavors to reveal the beauty that may be overlooked by the casual viewer. She has a "found object" aesthetic to her work where she will not manipulate the scene she is photographing either before or after the capture.

Trish has enjoyed success and notoriety as both a fine art and a commercial photographer. You may see her work in numerous galleries around the San Francisco Bay Area and she has private collectors worldwide.
