About Me


With everything I do, I believe in creating images that tell a story. The way I do this is by sculpting the light, carefully composing my subject with the environment, and taking the time to listen and document what I see.


Keith Emmerich is an award winning, classically trained photographer, with a career spanning over twenty years, beginning with Photo Journalism and Wedding Photography. A graduate of Boston University, his precise lighting skills and beautiful compositions soon put him at the top of his field as the owner of one of Metro Detroit’s most respected studios, focusing on portraiture and architectural assignments for a wide array of clients. 

Keith has a passion for creating amazing photography “in camera” but that has not stopped him from becoming highly skilled with photo manipulation and retouching. 

Keith began teaching workshops in the “rust belt” and soon found a passion for teaching, which lead him to his current position as the Director of Photography at The Academy for Media Production in Pennsylvania, one of the top Photography & Video colleges in the country. He is a two-time Gold medal winner at SkillsUSA and currently presides as the Tech Chair for Digital Cinema with the organization.
