Emery Photography: A Summer Company Story

After being asked to shoot engagement photos for family friends, Laurence Emery realized he could take his hobby and turn it into a business. This summer, with help from Peterborough Economic Development and Summer Company, Laurence did just that. Emery Photography provides photography and video production services that can fit in clients’ budgets.

The funding offered through Summer Company has allowed him to purchase new equipment to expand the breadth of services he offers. Laurence aims to always provide a professional product, and credits PED’s training with helping him become more professional with his craft.

As the business grows, Laurence plans on expanding his collection of equipment, allowing him to grow his services and production quality. Laurence plans to keep running Emery Photography as he continues with school.

For Laurence, success is about more than just financial return: “At the end of the day, it should feel worthwhile.”
