TIERNEY FARRELL is a photographer and fine artist based in New York, New York.  

Inspired by the truth that all humans are the same at the core, Tierney uses a warm approach in photography to break barriers of outward differences to seek a raw honesty within her subjects. She places high value on relationships and takes genuine interest and care in people, which creates the foundation for her work. Her work embodies the strength, dignity and beauty of her subjects with a natural and classic approach.  

Over the past couple of years, several of Tierney’s international portraits have been recognized by National Geographic editors and photographers.  A portrait from India was selected as one of ten winners out of 3,500 entries by National Geographic Your Shot in the #endpoverty challenge partnered with World Bank. Her photos have been favorited by editors on National Geographic Your Shot, published on Your Shot Daily Dozen, and favorited in the annual National Geographic Travel Photo Contest.  Another photo was commissioned by National Geographic to be in an upcoming children’s book that is set to be published in 2016. Most recently, she was the winner of a portrait photography contest by Shoot the Frame. 

In 2015, Tierney shot an independent photography project, Watchmen 20, during the first phase of production of the feature-length documentary film, When Lambs Become Lionsa film that follows men on both sides of the poaching crisis in Africa.  The photos in this series focus on the wildlife rangers that work to protect the animals and habitats from poaching.  In addition to gaining attention from editors and photographers at National Geographic, her work was also recently featured in articles and interviews by Examiner, Epicure & Culture and Pink Pangea. 

“Tierney is one of the hardest working photographers that I’ve crossed.  It’s a rare occasion you get the opportunity to work with someone that has such a relentless hunger and drive to always be learning and improving her craft.  Tierney pours her heart, soul, sweat and guts into her work.  The proof is in what she has accomplished as a professional artist in such a short time frame.”  

Andrew Harrison Brown, Creator + Producer, “When Lambs Become Lions”

“To say Tierney is a talented photographer or fine artist is an understatement. Tierney is a creative prodigy, a true renaissance woman – photographer, fine artist, musician, writer, idea developer, and the list goes on.  She has gifts that many of us work a lifetime to foster, and it’s her natural-born talent. Tierney’s passion for meaningful connections is apparent in her work. Her photos for our films added a level of professionalism to the brand, which helped validate our early efforts of fundraising and in turn positioned us for the growing success we have now.”
