emily berkey 35mm film and polaroid photographer and journalist los angeles california.jpg

oh hello

i’m emily berkey, a freelance photographer and writer from portland, oregon. when i’m not traveling, i’m stationed in los angeles, california. i’ve been taking photographs since i was old enough to hold a camera & received my first camera from my grandparents when i was seven.

today, i still only take photographs on 35mm and polaroid films and love interviewing humans and pairing their words with intimate portraits. this website holds some of my favorite personal projects, commissioned photos, and interviews for publications.

book me for press photos, editorial projects, and intimate portraits of you + your family (i love old people).
