For The Love of

Art & Authenticity

    True to her roots, Emily McCartney specializes in western lifestyle photography where she is able to combine her love of the American West, and the ranching way of life, with her creative image making and passion for art.

    Growing up on her family's sixth generation cattle and Quarter Horse operation in northwest Texas, Emily understands production agriculture and those that live it. Emily enjoys the many travels her career brings and says that the people she meets through her photography will always be the most impactful part of the journey.

    Emily graduated from Texas Tech University in 2017 with an agricultural communications degree and launched her career as a full-time free lance photographer. In December of 2019 Emily opened Roadrunner Gallery in her hometown of Throckmorton, Texas. Roadrunner Gallery houses Emily's western photography prints and features work from other artist, of all mediums, periodically.
   "My goal as a photographer is to capture the rawness of the people, land and animals in authentic form. There are many stories to be told about this way of life and I want my images to be the artistic storyteller."
