Emmy Schoorl is a Dutch freelance travel photographer and writer, based in Shanghai. After a career in the corporate sector, she made the life-changing decision to dedicate her life to her three passions: photography, writing and travel.

Born with a travel passion, she has ventured to very remote places in Asia. Journeying with her camera in hand she likes to capture the emotion and passion in people’s lives. Important themes in her work include portraits, ethnic minorities, the lives of monks, pilgrims & nomads, faith & symbolism, and daily life.

She often visits remote places in the Himalaya, like Amdo and Kham, Tibet (TAR-region), Nepal and Mustang, Bhutan, Ladakh and Zanskar in summer and wintertime.
