John Emerson is an environmental portrait photographer with over twenty years of professional experience. After assisting top photographers in New York City for five years, Emerson opened his doors for business in a modest studio on the west side of NYC. Specializing in richly lit portraiture both in studio and on location, Emersons strongest attribute is in finding and making something beautiful and interesting out of locations that often times have very little to offer. Since opening his doors in the 90's, Emerson has traveled all over the United States for many prominent clients for both advertising and editorial work (see client list below). In addition to his advertising and editorial work, Emerson is currently working on a personal project in the Catskill Mountains of New York where he lives part time and has an intense love for the region, it's beauty, and the people that live there. John is married and has four wonderful daughters and two crazy dogs.
