In 2013, Emma founded ELWJ Photography while studying at university and began working as a professional photographer/videographer.
After graduating from Falmouth University with a BA (Hons) Photography, Emma travelled extensively around the UK, Europe, Caribbean, Central and North America, covering regattas and events. Notably ELWJ worked for RORC for the Transatlantic Race, Rolex Fastnet Race and RORC Caribbean 600. Emma's images have been published in numerous publications such as Yachting World, Classic Boat and Classic Sailor magazine.
After Returning to the UK amidst the pandemic, Emma soon started working in the heritage sector to create online content for museum and heritage outreach. She takes great joy in visual communication and believes in the heritage sector it can be one of the most effective ways to educate and bring the past back to life.
Emma is an experienced sailor, having sailed across the Atlantic Ocean not once but four times, logged over 50,000nm on the ocean and taking countless photographs along the way!
