A wise way to start this blog would probably be with telling you a little bit about myself.
My name is Emma and I'm a freelance fashion and portrait photographer. I started out 4 years ago now doing a simple photography qualification on the side of my art and design studies, which then lead to me studying a full National Diploma in photography. My interest had been sparked long before that but 2009 was when it got a bit more serious.
Since then my interests have changed greatly. At first I took photos of flowers and landscapes but it wasn't long before I was photographing people. This was where I found my passion lied.
During my photography ND I challenged myself to work with more people and to create more conceptual work for myself which really helped me develop as a person. Maybe it's because I'm getting older, but I have seen the biggest improvement over the last two years of my life. I've started to see things in a different way which has made a massively positive impact on my work.
Through my studies I became interested in film photography and now have a trusty Pentax K1000 for 35mm and a Hasselblad for 6x6. Although I don't think I'll ever completely switch to film, it's something I really love to incorporate into shoots where I can.
The photo of me on the right was taken on a little Lomography camera I have!
Having just finished my studies, this is where the hard part of my journey begins! I'm looking forward to tackling the industry head and and I can't wait to see where things take me!
