About Emily

Thank you for visiting my website – I can’t wait to meet you!

I am a Londoner living in Somerset & comfortable in both urban and rural settings. If I had to describe myself I’d say I am friendly, fun and creative. I live near the Quantock Hills in Somerset with my husband and two teenage children, our dog Beanie and Izzy the pony.


As a family we like to travel and over the last few of years I have combined this with photo-journalism.

I have recently been published in Conde Naste magazines including Vogue Italia and Tatler, Country Life and The Times doing various travel pieces about The Scily Isles, Uganda and most recently, Sri Lanka.

Previously, I was commissioned by Unilever to take part in a creative project for Tesco focusing on family life in the UK. Emily chose to photograph local Somerset families in their daily lives.


I’ve always loved telling stories about people and have a background in reportage film-making. For a period of fifteen years I made several heavyweight documentaries for Channel 4 including The Grandparents Tale, (my own commission); Abducted (Cutting Edge), Pram Face (Cutting Edge) and Kelly and Her Sisters (ITV) which won a BAFTA, GRIERSON AND BROADCAST award for best documentary.


You can find our studio at Unit 2, Ashfield Farm Business Park, Crowcombe, Taunton TA4 4AW

If you drive from Taunton towards Minehead along the A358, go past Bishops Lydeard on your right and West Bagborough on your right and after about 3 miles take the first right turn to Crowcombe. Go past some new yellow houses on the right and turn next right into Ashfield Farm. Follow the farm lane left & the Quantock Frameworks sign and I am in the last unit at the end of lane in front of a big barn.
