transluceo, ere: to shine through


Photographer based in Coventry and the West Midlands

I’m Emilie, a French photographer with a love for stories, and the quiet human who likes to hide online behind the name Transluceo.

My journey into photography first started with my dad, who was always snapping photos of our family when I was a child. These photographs are now precious memories that I treasure, and what made me want to pick up a camera in the first place. My passion grew even stronger when I met my now husband Matt, who is a music producer and plays in the band Speak, Brother. I started taking photos for them at gigs and fell head first into live music photography — which was a great way of learning how to deal with pretty much any kind of lighting without freaking out!

I’m an introvert who loves finding inspiration in novels and myths, people and nature, and I’m always on the hunt for authenticity and texture. When I’m not out taking photos, I can usually be found curled up with a good book (probably something with dragons, magic and epic sword fights!) or walking our handsome golden retriever Oscar.

Have a flick through my journal for sessions I’ve shot, tips and tricks, things that inspire me, and the occasional ramble…
