An award winning DP from Australia, Emily began by studying experimental film before working her way up in the camera department assisting with 35mm and s16mm film. A lover of light, colour and movement, Emily approaches every project anew; versatile and ready to enrich a project's vision rather than imposing a style or artistic mark. “I want the audience to feel what I am saying, not notice the camera work”. In 2021 Emily was nominated for a BAFTA Cymru for her Documentary cinematography while busy with long form narrative work. Recent productions are dark romantic comedy for Sky Atlantic “The Lovers”, political action drama “Cobra” Series 3 and the period drama “Sanditon” for ITV (Series 2 & 3). More recently her work has featured on NOWNESS and the BFI feature “Sweetheart” has been released internationally.
