After several years devoted to event management, then to teaching in schools with teenagers in difficulty, Tania Emery branched off into the world of images.

A passionate photographer, Tania Emery has a large number of fields of predilection. From architecture to macro photography, passing through landscape photography, it is finally the link to others that pushes her to specialize in portraiture.

It is by discovering the suffering of the people she captures and their bad self-image that Tania Emery decides to create a photo-coaching course which allows her models not only to discover beautiful pictures of themselves, but also to work in depth on their self esteem, their confidence and their belief system related to their image, and finally, very often, to start to love themselves.

Convinced that photography is a tool, just like any other, and that it can improve the way we look at ourselves, Tania Emery is currently developing her photo-coaching projects with people suffering from illnesses, or following accidents, to help them cope with the aftermath that the body may have suffered.

Expertise : photography, photo-coaching, pedagogy, emotional intelligence, training and didactic, adolescence.
