About Me

INTRODUCING YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER

Emma Duder

Hi, I'm Emma, your friendly neighbourhood wedding photographer, based in Derby. Taking pictures of people is what I love to do. I'm very down-to-earth, relaxed and no-nonsense. If you choose me to be your photographer you'll find that I'm happy to go with the flow of your day but that I'll do whatever it takes to get the most interesting and beautiful shots. I take pride in capturing people at their best. I love it when my images are used as people's profile pictures on social media because it means I've captured that person in a way that they want to be seen.

MY CREATIVE JOURNEY

Throw Back

2000

Art College

Here’s me at the tender age of 19 at the private view of my final exhibition at Suffolk College where I spent three years studying art. In answer to your questions: Yes, I had died my hair blonde; Yes, I could fit my entire body into one leg of my flares; Yes, I did paint oversized remote controls; No, I can’t remember why.

2003

University

This was taken in my third year of a fine art degree at Derby University.  All I wanted to do was to run off and be an artist with a studio apartment in New York. This was my second of four visits to the city. In the end I settled for the cosmopolitan lights of Derby instead, and here I’ve stayed.

Graphic Design & Photography

Fast forward a few years through bill-paying jobs in finance and housing before I lose patience with working for the man and go back to night school to catch up on how the arts had gone digital in my absence. A few photography, Photoshop and Adobe design lessons later and I rejoin the creative industry as a graphic designer and photographer.

Photographic Style

It's my aim to take pictures of people that really reflect their style, their emotions and their story. When you see the pictures I've taken of you, I want you to feel like they're the very best representation of you; that I've captured you as you want to be seen by others. Because of this, my pictures are personal, intimate and honest.

I work in a very relaxed way, I think that having your photo taken should be an enjoyable experience, even if you're usually a bit uncomfortable in front of the camera. I always give direction to the people I photograph, this means making suggestions on where to put your hands, or where to look, so you don't feel awkward. I'll never ask you to do anything you wouldn't normally do.
