About Peter Emmerson

Photo of Peter EmmersonBACKGROUND:

Peter Emmerson Productions was established in 1977 and was incorporated in 1979. The name was amended to Peter Emmerson Photography to better reflect the type of work produced. I have worked with a variety of corporate clients for many years providing unique solutions to a wide variety of visual challenges both originally in the film business and in the corporate world of photography.

 

PHILOSOPHY:

Because of my documentary film background having had an influence on my photographic shooting style, I will often try and recreate lighting techniques from nature or from the stage, evoking mood, drama, or enhancing beauty. I believe I have a God given talent to capture the emotional palette within people. Photography is a craft that requires switching styles to best suit the needs of the client. The documentary style is a foundation for a shooting style but certain photographic requirements require stylizing the subject matter, so flexibility is a component to my photographic approach.

 

TRAVEL:

I have traveled extensively around the globe to countries such as: USA, England, France, Germany, Haiti, Japan, Singapore, Greece, Austria, Puerto Rico and all across Canada.
