Tegan Smith is a Cape Town based fashion & lifestyle photographer specializing in content creation for brands and celebrities. After receiving a diploma in Photography from the Ruth Prowse School of Art in 2011 she began her freelance career. She soon found that she needed to upgrade to a full frame camera in order to shoot for the larger clients that were approaching her. Unable to book clients with bigger budgets having her amateur camera, she decided it was make or break for her photography career. With giving up not being an option, she hosted a karaoke evening for friends and family and asked for a small donation at the door. The funds raised completed the budget she required in order to buy the second hand full frame camera she needed. Over the next few years she would book clients such as Ford South Africa, Cotton On Africa and Australia, Netflix, Foschini, Markham, Due South, Smile FM, Shoe City to name a few. She has worked with celebrities and influencers who support her skills regularly such as Cindy Nell, Aisha Baker-Parnell, Zoe Brown, Bailey Schneider and many more!
Tegan’s work is inspired by natural beauty, feminine strength and soft, warm tones. Her aim is to create emotive imagery & lasting content.
She currently resides in Cape Town, South Africa and travels between Johannesburg, Port Elizabeth and Durban for her work.
