My name is Emily and I'm a professional photographer based in Melbourne specialising in beauty and fashion. I have been photographing professionally for the past six years and have tried every field under the sun including food, beverage, portraits, travel, events, fashion, product and beauty. 

I found my love of beauty photography when I did a campaign shoot for Montana Bliss Cosmetics, falling in love with every part from planning, selecting the models, the photoshoot and retouching. From that day on I knew I wanted to specialise in beauty


This love of makeup and beauty photography was expanded where in July this year I launched  a second photography business, Lumsden Studio. While this business also contains beauty photography, it includes cosmetic product photography as well. Lumsden Studio is all about collaborating with makeup artists, hair stylists and models, ensuring they're just as much involved as I am. I also wanted a space where I could purely focus on my love for makeup and allow me to showcase both beauty and product whereas here is mainly beauty and fashion but I share my other areas of work as well. 

Fashion has been an area I have has always loved. From the moment I saw The Devil Wears Prada I knew I wanted to work somewhere in the fashion industry  didn't realise at the time that photography was my calling. This year I did a fashion test shoot with influencer and content creator, Brooke McAuley. The entire day gave me the same feeling that beauty gave. me, pure joy and has led me to calling myself a fashion photographer as well as a beauty photographer. 


I have a Master of Photography (distinction)  I plan to bring this degree into a number of my jobs and create an artistic look to my images, allowing them to tell a story a communicate to the audience as much as possible.
