Topic: Creating meaningful images through connection with Emily Black

Description: Whether you photograph families, or portraits, or landscapes or any other genre, we view our subject through our own lens. Not the camera, but through the filter of our own lives and experience. It is that journey, and experience that is our point of difference, our way to connect.

Photography has the power to move people, and by knowing and connecting with our own journeys we are then able to attract the right clients or customers to our art… because being a little vulnerable and embracing what makes us, ‘us’ we can attract people that connect to our spceific art, and create more meaningful and moving images for them.
