About Emma Tempest

Born and raised in Cornwall in the UK, Emma had the good fortune of growing up by the sea, which has always been a big influence in her work. From an early age she was surrounded by cameras, darkrooms and the smell of film stock, as her grandfather founded and ran a successful photographic business.

Influenced by great filmmakers and her love of the sea and countryside, Emma’s beautifully lit images capture a sense of beauty that portrays women in a graceful and engaging way. Her editorial and commercial clients include Mulberry, L’Oreal, Jil Sander, Topshop, Teen Vogue, Vogue Russia, Vogue Turkey, Vogue Australia and British Vogue, as well as for Exit, iD, Mixt(e), Rika, The Telegraph, Sunday Times Style and Net a Porter. Shooting celebrities such as Lupita Nyong’o, Lucy Lui, Gemma Arterton and Elisabeth Olsen.

Emma lives in London and works between London, Paris, New York and Los Angeles.
