"Shooting the sea is not dissimilar from shooting a portrait. It may take some time, in an unforgivable environment and your subject may be cruel and uncooperative. But with patience and coaxing, its guard will be dropped and the soul of the subject will be revealed." - EJ Camp
While renowned for her rich photographic career including celebrity portraits, magazine covers, movie posters and advertising campaigns, additionally EJ Camp has created extraordinary fine art landscape images.
For over 30 years, and throughout the progression of her editorial and commercial career, Camp has photographed the sea and its shores. Her favorite subject, the North and South Forks of Long Island, have some of the most beautiful coastlines in North America, making Camp's quest for unique images inexhaustible.
A passion for the way light reflects off the changing surfaces of the ocean has directly evolved from a career spent capturing light and emotion in Ej Camp's portraiture. Her credits include GQ, Glamour, Elle, Esquire, L'Uomo Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, Men's Health, New York, Sports Illustrated, ABC, CBS, 20th Century Fox, Paramount, Pictures, Showtime, Sony Pictures, and Warner Brothers.
