Hi, I'm Emily. I am a photographer living in Southern California. I photograph a variety of subjects: food, head-shots, lifestyle, fashion, and product. I especially enjoy the restaurant scene and love photographing culinary subjects. I also have experience testing recipes and food styling. Whatever the subject, my goal is to create eye-catching imagery. Since my graduation in 2006, I have shot for numerous print and digital publications. Locally, I have been the staff photographer at Orange Coast Magazine since moving to California in August, 2019. I hold a BFA degree in Photography from the University of Minnesota-Minneapolis. I am currently a freelance photographer, working in Southern California and beyond. Let's chat about your next project!
