Hey there!

My name is Emma Renly and I am a journalist with a camera in hand based in an area that can loosely be described as the western half of the United States.  


What is my area of expertise?

My primary focus is story-telling about the intersection of human profiles and public lands while also highlighting various niches of outdoor recreation.

Yeah, yeah eveyone is an outdoors writer...

What makes me different:

Relating to diverse group isn’t easy. With a weird sense of self-awareness, my writing often pokes fun at traditional, cliche topics in a way everyone can enjoy. A newcomer will feel inspired to be part of the community while an expert will laugh at the relatability.

The mountains are calling and I must finish my website...

What else you can expect:

Prompt responses, easy communication and well-researched information. Not to mention, plenty of unique ideas that come from personal (and embarassing) experiences. Remeber that time my truck got broken into? No? Relive the dumb day with me here

Searing for anything in particular?
