About Emma Stryder


Whether shooting in the studio or on location my work utilises a range of photographic languages. I juxtapose classical aesthetics with modern techniques and attitude- using light, colour and texture to create impact and drama.

My shoots are concept driven with the aim of creating an atmosphere or telling a story.

Films, fine art and science inspire my fashion images; a fusion of editorial photography with illustrative style.
