Describing herself as a nomadic spirit and sensitive soul, perhaps it is these attributes that make photographer Aoise Tutty Jackson more in tune with her subjects and surrounding environment, her informal and fresh style lending openhearted beauty to her photographs.
Preferring to shoot in a natural, intimate way so her pictures tell the story of the people in them, Aoise’s shoots are set up to be a supportive journey. A very spiritual person, she sees photography as a healing tool.
“So many people have a fear around being seen and the camera,” says Aoise. “I see my role as a photographer to support people to feel comfortable to drop into their truest selves.
“I love taking pictures in nature, out in the woods, by the sea, or in places that are important to people, where they feel at home or at peace in that environment.
Also an award-winning filmmaker, with subjects of mental health, wellbeing and spirituality featuring strongly in her work, Aoise has enjoyed working with initiatives such as the 49 North Street Wellbeing Network in Skibbereen. Her 15-minute documentary film ‘An Open Door’ premiered in Cork Film Festival 2018 as part of the ‘Best in Cork’ category, won the Community Award at The Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival, a Silver Remi at WorldFest Houston and was selected as a finalist at The Fastnet Film Festival. Her films have also been selected for London Short Film Festival and Indie Cork Film Festival.
“As an artist, my aim is to capture and interpret the poetry of everyday life,” she says.
“Aoise has brilliant perception and utilises light and tones wonderfully. She encourages your personality and authenticity, I felt relaxed and confident due to her level of professionalism and skills.” Kate Finn, October 2022.
“Aoise was so wonderful to work with. We felt totally at ease in her presence and it was a connecting and affirming experience for our family. She effortlessly bridged the divide between personal and professional. We really felt seen and celebrated as a family and as individuals.” Hannah, December 2022
“I was looking for a photographer to get some shots done for my coaching website, and I really wanted to work with someone who really ‘got’ me and where I was coming from and what I was looking for. I was delighted to find Aoise and her ‘Sacred Soul Photography’. I knew that what she offered was what I was looking for. I’m really grateful that I opted to do the additional video recording before the shoot, as this really set the tone for the day ahead and really helped me ‘drop into myself’ and relax. Aoise was really helpful in assisting me to feel really relaxed throughout the photoshoot which made everything flow and feel easy…I’m really happy with the high-quality professional photos I now have..”
Des Richmond, Conscious Evolution Coach, December 2022.
