About me

Hello! I’m Jess (aka Porthjess), an experienced Digital Content Creator, photographer and colour-obsessive.

Bristol is the city I’ve called home my whole life; its vibrant colours, streets and people are my passion and inspiration, and I’m a proud Ambassador for Destination Bristol and Bristol Social Media Week.

When I’m not out pounding Bristol’s colourful streets with camera in one hand and a coffee in the other, I also work as an online Community Manager running the Bristol Instagrammers network IGers Bristol and am a regular speaker on the topics of social media careers, Instagram community-building and mental health, for clients including BBC Academy, Social Media Week & Bristol Media.

Other previous digital content clients have included Pret A Manger, Toyota, Canon, O2, Seasalt and Finisterre.

When I’m not photographing stuff or creating content, you’ll probably find me loitering around Bristol harbourside where I live, bouncing around at a gig or gazing skywards, trying to spot hot air balloons.

Drop me a line here!

PS I recently launched a bid to make Bristol recognised as the most colourful city in the UK (as I believe it is!). You can find out more about this here: https://www.instagram.com/bristolcolouruk/
