Tessa is the founder of PRISM. She has been DJing in Los Angeles since 2010, getting her start at the Viper Room in Hollywood and Wurstküche in Downtown Los Angeles. Since then, Tessa has become one of the most sought-after DJs for corporate events and weddings.
Growing up in Reno, Nevada in the 90s while working in old-school music shops like The Wherehouse and frequenting Tower Records, Tessa was absorbing and collecting music since a teenager.
I was so excited when she asked me to photograph her. I wanted to capture her femininity and personality. In a male saturated market Tessa and her boutique agency representing female DJs are making their mark. These ladies are having a positive influence in the music industry and doing it with class.
