Born and raised in Australia, Penny Cottee studied photography at Sydney College of Arts before settling in London. Although her father tried to convince her to go into wedding photography, Penny has enjoyed a successful commercial career shooting for editorial and advertising clients including The Guardian, The World Gold Council and Bacardi. Penny enjoys looking at the usual with a different perspective and portrays each subject, however ordinary, as precious. She uses texture, shape and light to create each image, and to create an intimate moment with the object or scene whether it is a luxury item or a discarded piece of rubbish. Penny is represented by Vue.
