Who are you?
I’m Emma Rock, a 23 year old; life loving, people loving, God loving, full-time photographer. I am a wife and a Psychology graduate who loves to capture moments in time. I love all things weddings, all things love and taking photos of all of the above.
What do you do?
I photograph weddings and engagements; families and new-borns and I also shoot some corporate work.
Whats your go to equipment?
Canon 5dmkiii & Canon 6d and my go to lens is a 50mm prime lens.
Why do you do what you do?
My heart behind my photography is really to capture the essence of the day or occasion that I’m shooting. My shooting style is a relaxed, storytelling approach, capturing you at your most natural. My aim is to be a fly-on-the wall, capturing loved ones in their most comfortable state. I love to capture the intimate moments that bring back all of the feelings that are connected at that time.
What inspired you to start in the field?
I got my first little camera when I was 14 years old but, it wasn’t until a missions trip to Uganda that I begin to realise how much I enjoyed capturing moments. I blogged my trip and when people began to read it I started to get messages asking me to take images of them and their families.
I fell in love with the creative element of psychology during my second year of study- the part that wants to understand and find out more, that’s where Psychology came in. I was able to be my studious self, able to compile information in a process form to come to a conclusion. I suppose you could say that I have a niche in that I see beyond the physical and capture who the people they really are. I specialise in bringing out the you, in you- the happy you, the giddy you, the introverted you, the you that likes to be held tight by the one you love, or the you who only needs to be in their presence to smile.
What challenges you?
I think the thing that challenges me the most is myself. At the beginning of my career I was given advice from another photographer – don’t look at other photographers work and compare but, instead- get inspired by other creative avenues. For the most part I have taken that on board and I think that it has helped me a lot in the journey.
What inspires you?
The biggest thing that inspires me is my faith. It inspires me to approach my work with excellence and I am always trying to better myself as I believe that I should always work to the best of my potential.
