Emma is an award-winning cinematographer based in Los Angeles and working worldwide.

Born and raised in Maine with Acadia National Park as her backyard, Emma developed a passion early on for the outdoors. Graduating with a Film and Television Production degree concentrating in cinematography from Loyola Marymount University, Emma is trained in shooting music videos, commercials, documentaries, and fiction films.

Now Emma balances freelancing as a cinematographer with their documentary position for a division of the National Park Service, filming preservationists in different national parks across the country to share the important work that they do. A growth-driven artist with a passion for visuals, aesthetics, and storytelling, Emma looks forward to collaborating with you behind the camera on your next project.

Outside of Emma's love for cinematography, they also enjoy bouldering, reading, hiking, and traveling.
