About

I love all the experiences life throws at me (& photographing it!)

I’m a reportage style photographer. There’s little that doesn’t interest me so I enjoy photographing all sorts of different subjects. Capturing the wider picture and the details that makes a story. Based in Brighton I’m close to London with all its interests & travel connections. Yet with all the benefits of this eclectic city, the countryside and sea there’s no shortage of subjects to photograph.

I particularly enjoy arts & crafts, food & producers, and travel & adventure. I prefer to use ambient light primarily, but many situations require some lighting so I make use as required, kept as natural as possible. I’ve been lucky enough to win a couple of awards, details of which you can see below.

And when I’m not working, you could well find me challenging (or defending) a World Championship title or two, planning my next adventure, or more likely than not, just walking the dog.

'FOOD FOR SALE' - WINNER

Awesome to be awarded the winner of the ‘Food For Sale’ category in the Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year competition in Spring 2014. I took the shot at an incredible street market in Chile while on a commission for the lovely ‘Food and Travel’ magazine. I was very grateful that the subject didn’t mind my taking his portrait. His son’s were busy giggling out of the frame, and it caused quite a stir with stall holders and shoppers alike, but he held his composure just long enough for this shot. Happy days!

A BRIT DIFFERENT - WINNER

Members of the public were asked to nominate their favourite book, which in some way celebrates the joys of the outdoor. Titles ranged from fact and fiction to prose and poetry, across a wide variety of themes, from gardening & wildlife to extreme sports & travel. Hundreds of votes were received via the National Trust’s website over the course of a month. They initially set out to find the best six books, but nominations were received for such a variety that eight were chosen as winners, including mine!

Reviews

A few reviews that clients have been kind enough to write for me on Houzz:

Yelo Architects
We have worked with Emma to capture a number of our residential projects and she has consistently produced quality photographs that ensure that we will continue working with her in the future. We have no hesitation in providing her with any brief and we can always rely on her to capture images that will be used to represent our work and company.

Jellyfish
Working with Emma is a pleasure, she just gets the brief and always works over and above to achieve a great result. It’s just very easy working together, and every job she brings new ideas to the table. Recently we commissioned Emma to photograph multiple hotels around London for our client GLH Hotel Group. She worked with myself, Creative Director at Jellyfish London, to create a series of beautiful lifestyle images that would be used in various digital promotional assets for the hotel chain.

The Brighton Bathroom Company
Emma is a really talented photographer who we know we can trust to do a great job every time, capturing our bathroom projects in their best light. She’s got a relaxed way about her which means clients find her easy company. We love her style which is reportage and perfect for editorial. I can wholeheartedly recommend Emma’s interior photography.

VIP Ski
We hired Emma earlier this year to photograph a new hotel in our portfolio. We are thrilled with the results. There is no doubt Emma worked extremely hard on the shoot to fulfill the brief and the turnaround on delivery of the finished pictures was prompt. The quality of photography is outstanding and she perfectly captured the character and personality of the property. We would have no hesitation in recommending Emma.

OpenHaus kitchens
Emma certainly has a natural eye for catching those fluidic moments as people move through a space; creating interesting narrative, focus and balance in her shots. Combined with an easy but professional manner and a quick turnaround of her work, we are very happy to recommend Emma and her photographic skills. We look forward to more opportunities to work together in the future.
