Katriena Emmanuel of Emmanuel Photography was born and raised in Trinidad until 2004, when she migrated to Australia with her fiancé. It was in November 2008 when the desk job of a paralegal became too mundane for her and she began soul-searching with the hopes of finding a profession that truly spoke to her.
Taking a cue from well-known Trinidadian photographer and artist Laura Ferreira, who is self-taught in her skill, Katriena decided to embrace her own creative talent that she had always exhibited through drawings and fashion sketches as a child. With the help and support of her now husband – an aficionado in digital software such as Photoshop – Katriena began learning as much as she could on the world’s greatest photographers and their work, as well as familiarizing herself with every feature on her Canon 400D.
She is grateful to have worked with some brilliant talent in hair, makeup and design on the Gold Coast, Australia in the past two and a half years and is working her way up to being featured in top magazines such as Karen, Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue Italia.
