– about emma –

I’m a professional photographer based just outside Penrith, in the beautiful Lake District, with my husband Calum and Mog the cat.

In the 90’s I turned professional, having completed my postgraduate certificate in Journalism and decided to specialise in photography. I worked as a freelance photographer for publications such as Horse and Hound magazine and Dressage News. In 1999, I was fascinated with the potential of the emerging internet, and began a career in web design and digital marketing.

Photography always remained a love of mine, and in 2007 I won a national photographic competition. This was the spark responsible for reigniting my photography as a profession (and passion) once again.

Exhibited in the Design Museum,


In the last ten years, (having picked up the cycling bug), I’ve been photographing the world’s elite cyclists in the UK and Europe.  I’m also the in-house photographer for the online gardening news publication the Reckless Gardener.

I also specialise in documentary and fine art wedding photography. From the very first wedding I photographed, it became instantly clear to me just what a huge honour and privilege it was. Every wedding is so unique and special in their own way and that’s why I love them.

If you have any queries about hiring a wedding photographer, booking an equine photoshoot or you’d like further information regarding commerical photography, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Best wishes,
