Meet Your Photographer
Meet Your Photographer...
I’m Emma Finch, an award-winning, internationally published, Manchester based Portrait Photographer. I have been a Professional Photographer for over 10 years and have won multiple awards including Top 5 International Portrait Photographer (twice), had over 55 international publications including front covers and 4 times been a finalist in Portrait of the Year.
Coming from a bilingual accountancy background, I retrained and was awarded a double distinction in Photography which gave me the confidence to pursue photography. I was approached by Getty Images, Alamy and Saatchi who were keen to license some of my images. A few exhibitions followed and I finally had the courage to launch Emma Finch Photography.
With families, I prefer shooting with natural light and in natural settings, which allows for real emotions, real moments that create timeless, evocative images. I find it a privilege and a pleasure to photograph people knowing the images will become part of someone's history.
With branding shoots, I love to see your business come alive through the images we create. Working with business owners, I approach each session with the same passion with which I approach my own brands.
I also run Belle Privé Photography, which specialises in Female Portraiture, Lingerie and Vintage photography. Based from my Manchester studio, I work both commercially and with private clients and am proud to have had multiple international front covers.
I also co-founded Photography Session Days, teaching Portrait Photography and running events in unique locations around the UK... we bring the finest models and performers together to create award winning images for photographers' portfolios.
When I am not behind the lens, I love to spend time with my family. I am a traveller, a foodie, a people-watcher.
I am in love with my life and I feel honoured to have a career that I feel so passionately about.
