Tish was born in South Shields on 14th March 1956, but later moved to Elswick in the West End of Newcastle Upon Tyne. Photography wasn’t part of her life until she took a photography course at Bath Lane, Newcastle, where her lecturer convinced her to apply to the Documentary Photography course in Newport, newly set up by David Hurn and the only one of it’s kind at the time. The same lecturer also helped her to get an education grant which enabled her to go. In 1976, aged 20, Tish left home to study at the famous School of Documentary Photography at The University of Wales, Newport under the guidance of Magnum member David Hurn.
