Emile has photographed a wide range of different subject matter in the past 5 years and has developed a love and respect for the photographic experience. From formal study of different photographic processes to street & live music photography. Emile has an obsession with the idea of slow idilic coastal living and spends his spare time capturing the south coast of South Australia and experimenting with negative space and interesting compositions. Emile also photographs commercially for architectural and event purposes to support his love of freelance photography and artistic pursuits. Emile is both formally trained in both digital and analog processes but also is self-taught a large portion of his knowledge as well.
I adore the fact that a photograph is an intimate connection that is formed between the subject and photographer and cannot be manufactured any other way. Whether it is capturing a new love between a couple or the intensity of a gaze of a fashion model, both instances reveal a special moment in time that I try to correlate through my imagery.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have photographed live music and events, special social occasions and architecture. I bring a warm and out-going approach to all my photography work and try to create a cohesive working environment with my clients. With live music specifically I make my shoots special by trying to achieve interesting shots that others would usually shy away from. I am also not afraid to get up and personal with performers infront of a large crowd as well.
