She’s that stealth photographer who gracefully maneuvers her way around a crowded room. Whether she’s effortlessly slipping between waiters steadying drink trays at a fashionable cocktail fete or navigating her way behind the scenes as a nervous bride readies to walk down the aisle, Jenny Antill mixes deftly with the crowd--any crowd. Yet somehow this pretty, lithe strawberry blonde remains separate from it all, taking in the entire mise-en-scene and, with just a flash of her camera, cleverly snapping those wonderful party details so many others miss. Upon graduating from the University of the South as a photography major, this Episcopal High School alum ventured back to her hometown to take on a position coordinating FotoFest’s internationally famed photo exhibitions. Four years later, the glossy magazine PaperCity snagged the inventive Antill to be its photo editor. Through supporting photography projects at the magazine and moonlighting as a freelance photographer, Jenny Antill Photography was launched in 2006. After more than 10 years of producing a portfolio of images that speaks to the recent cultural history of Houston, Antill continues to deepen her eye for distinctive images and push her boundaries on projects that capture ornate styles, unique moments, and the people who produce them.
