Born and raised in the Philippines, Grace Emmelot is now based in Norway.
Having begun her journey in her homeland, she continues to explore the many genres of photography—portrait, street, documentary, corporate, landscape, travel, and product. But her forte lies in these three: portraits, events, documentary and corporate photography.
Back in the Philippines, she established her own studio. With her art now ever evolving in Norway, she is in the exciting process of establishing Emmelot Grace Photography.
Aside from being a professional photographer, Grace is also a multimedia designer and teacher, passionate about both documentary and film production. She brings with her over two decades of experience in various yet interconnected fields of industry, such as events, film production, marketing, branding, and multimedia design.
As a photographer, Grace has been shooting freelance since 2012 for her personal studios, freelance and corporate jobs in the Philippines, and has also done projects overseas.
Her distinct flavor and style have been deeply inspired by photographers that she holds in high esteem, as well as her writing mentor, Ricky Lee, and her batchmates in the Katorse Writers Group.
To shoot a photograph at a given moment is not only to connect to the subject. It is also, sometimes, a decision to disconnect from the surrounding clutter.
Grace would like to create a common ground for artists and photographers by organizing workshops in the field of arts and photography, best practice sharing, forums, photo walks and help organize local exhibitions for other artists too.
