"Once Emari Traffie shows you how to look at something, you see it anew."

Emari Traffie is an independent photographer based in Hollywood, California.


She has an intentional documentary style that comes from both her background in the Marines (2007-2011) as a combat correspondent and her formal training from Emerson College (Class of 2014) in Boston. 


Recent clients include Reebok, adidas, Nike x VSCO, Vice, Sweetgreen, and the Line Hotel. Since moving to LA she also photographs a steady stream of LA influencers and underground bands/brands.
