Living in Ontario,Canada, Emmylou MW has been interested in photography since she started blogging in 2011. In March 2018, when she was gifted a mirrorless Canon, she decided to take her hobby to the next level and taught herself the technical aspects of taking photographs through countless hours of research and practice. She recently attended Digital Photography and Photoshop classes offered by the Toronto Public Library to further her skills. Her experience with oil painting influences how she composes her photos.
Emmy's main inspiration in her work are the photographers William Eggleston, Vivian Maier and Juergen Teller.
