Emily Hlavác Green is a New Zealand-born artist based between New York and Los Angeles.

Emily captures fashion, portrait, lifestyle and travel imagery for clients including Foot Locker Women, Samsung, Reebok, Stella Artois, Puma, Nylon and The New York Times. Her work ranges from youthfully spontaneous to intimate, the common thread being a nod to authentic everyday moments.

Reflecting her considered but energetic approach, her images echo the warm environment she nurtures on set.
Driven by storytelling, Emily cares about the why, as much as the how.

She loves multitudes and contradictions; the ever-creative high energy of fashion, and equally, hanging off the side of a cliff or cooking over a campfire.
Her approach to work mirrors life itself - characterized by curiosity and the willingness to evolve as an artist.

Emily’s imagery has been recognized by the International Photography Awards, PDN, and American Photography, and she’s a member of Women Photograph.
