I've been a full time freelance photographer ever since graduating from Art school in 1985. I've shot everything from high school football when I was starting out to very large product catalog projects spanning months of shooting. Also, I have photographer literally thousands of corporate headshots. As long as people have heads, I think I’ll stay busy! My latest passion, and what seems like a very hot trend, is food photography. I still have my regular marketing clients, but the food photography is relatively new and exciting and I am really enjoying it.

Greetings! As a highly experienced fashion portrait photographer, I bring a unique perspective to my craft. Born and raised in the Dominican Republic, I was constantly surrounded by the beauty of the culture, which inspired my love for photography. After moving to New York at a young age, I was exposed to diverse cultures and people, which only fueled my passion for capturing beauty in all its forms. I quickly developed a keen eye for detail and composition and a deep appreciation for the power of collaboration.

camera Sony A7R IV, Canon EOS 5D Mark II

With over 8 years of immersive experience behind the lens, I've cultivated a deep passion for capturing moments that resonate with emotion and authenticity. My journey in photography began as a curiosity, but quickly evolved into a lifelong pursuit of visual storytelling. Trained in both traditional film and digital techniques, I thrive in diverse environments, from intimate portraits to sprawling landscapes. Each click of the shutter is an opportunity to freeze time, distilling the essence of a fleeting moment into a timeless image. My work is fueled by a relentless pursuit of beauty and truth, seeking to evoke emotion and provoke thought with every frame. Whether documenting the raw energy of urban life or the tranquil serenity of nature, I strive to create images that leave a lasting impact on the viewer. From exhibitions to publications, my photographs have found homes in galleries and magazines around the world, each telling a unique story of the human experience. With every shoot, I am reminded of the profound privilege it is to capture the world through my lens. Let's create something unforgettable together.

Emily has been in love with capturing moments since she was a little kid! For the last 10 years Emily has pursued and studied Photography vigorously. She took Photography classes all four years of High School, and by the time she was a Senior she was in a college level (AP) class. Her intent was to go to school to get a BFA in Photography, but unfortunately her family did not have the financial means.

One of her most recent photo's is on the cover of a local Portland publication for an entire year! She has also toured with the band Circa Survive for 3 cities with photos published on the band's social media.

How did you get started with photography

I got started in photography when my father and I were hired to move a Rabbi and his wife across the country when I was 15. I borrowed my grandfather's manual Canon AE camera, stocked up on film, and spent 8 days hanging out the window of a rented Ryder truck photographing landscapes from Massachusetts to Vancouver. I fell in love with traveling and have never put the camera down.

What do you love about your job?

I love exploring new places, meeting new people and capturing moments in time.

What are some of your favorite places in Philadelphia to take photographs?

Fairmount Park, Graffiti Pier, Bartram's Garden, Fishtown (street art, weathered brick, train trestles)
