BIO / Emma Cassidy
I am a freelance editorial photographer based in Seattle, Washington, focusing primarily on event photography for organizations and individuals. I shoot with a documentary style and enjoy working outside and photographing in natural light. I am also trained as a commercial photographer and am available to photograph portraits, events, weddings, farms, and travel.
I've been documenting social justice movements for the past 9 years, ever since joining Project Survival Media as a youth photographer. In 2010, I interned for the Senior Photo Editor at Greenpeace USA and learned how to advocate for environmental causes through strong imagery. I now work as a media producer and photo archivist for Survival Media Agency, as well as doing freelance work.
Throughout the years I have photographed for many other environmental and social justice organizations and my photographs have been published in Teen Vogue, Grist, The Nation, Seattle Weekly, The Progressive, Mashable, Yes! Magazine, and many other news outlets.
