Born in Portland, Oregon, west coast photographer Bridgette Emard specializes in elegant portraiture and fresh commercial work. A classically-trained dancer, she is able to capture the essence of dance in her photos from a performer’s perspective as well as that of an artist. Bridgette finds inspiration in art, music, and nature. “My goal is to find the soul of the performer and bring it out in my work.” What makes Bridgette’s work truly unique is her ability to experiment and push boundaries creatively while maintaining her classical sensibilities.
