About Emma

I grew up in a little flat in Soho London, with my mum, dad and Greek-Cypriot grandfather, whom I dearly loved.

I remember spending time with my father while he played with cameras and I’d sit with him in a dark room across the street from our flat.

When I was about 8 years old, my Mum gave me my first camera. It belonged to her father and it started my love for taking pictures.

That was then

Eventually went to Art foundation in East London and then studied Art and English at University.

From there I worked in advertising with my partner at the time, Stephen Seal. Steve worked as a computer artist retouching and adding special effects to still images. I oversaw production, scanning, budgets and resolving final artwork. Our clients included: Nick Knight, Peter Saville, Alexander McQueen, Dior, Vogue, BBH, Bjork, Publicis and Saatchi. I documented my life with photography alongside our commercial work.

My passion now

Now I live in Bath, Somerset and work on my own. I use a simple camera and basic computer editing to capture honest moments in peoples lives.

I work with Charities, Therapists, Practitioners, Creatives and Schools, in fact anyone wanting to show the human connection in their workplace.

I love capturing a moment of understanding, a feeling of empathy and a link to how amazing we all are.

A favourite past time is catching images out on the streets!
