Emma Miranda Moore tells stories using film and photography. After many successful years in fashion photography, her narrative centred approach to stills naturally led to her making moving image.
Originally fine art trained, all her work pulls the viewer into a specific time and place while conveying the emotion of the moment. A recurring theme in her work is the contrast between urban reality and dreams or a sense of longing for elsewhere. The characters she creates whether in her fashion, film or portrait work are strong, flawed and real. She works with actors and dancers as well as models to communicate her vision.
Emma shoots editorial film and collaborates directly with brands to make a combination of moving and still images. She began by shooting portraits for The Face under the art direction of Lee Swillingham and Stuart Spalding and went on to shot main fashion for numerous print titles including Red, Cosmopolitan, New Woman, The Guardian and The Sunday Times. Recent online collaborators include Disneyrollergirl, with whom she has just launched a new film strand, Boys by Girls and C-Heads. She has created special projects with brands including Dior and Chanel and has directed a variety of fashion film, music video and mini docs.
Her films includes two festival shorts: PERF, a dance film and Optimism, a narrative drama. Both were written and directed by her. She is working on a third, Truth or Dare, set to shoot in 2016. She is a creative director at La Coterie, a female led film production site run by Katharine Richardson.
