It's not the gear that you use which creates a great photograph, it's you, the photographer who does!


A California native from the United States, Stephanie E’amato is a Queer photojournalist and documentary photographer .  Her style can be summed up as "finding moments"... small moments within this huge world we live in and capturing those moments in a powerful photograph. Stephanie’s greatest passion is to photograph human rights events with the goal of documenting and telling stories as they unfold before her .  Her work beautifully captures the strong emotions being expressed in what feels like an almost intimate photograph of people’s responses to that event. Her technique is to be present and always ready to capture what unfolds before her, doing so with only natural and available light. Stephanie is a member of the National Press Photographers Association and is a contributor to Southern California News Group where her work is published.

"It is an illusion that photos are made with the camera... they are made with eye, heart, and head."
