Emily Shornick is a managing photo editor, art director and producer. She currently oversees visuals for InStyle.com. Her career has focused on digital editorial in the women's interest space, but she has worked across categories in print, e-comm and fine art.
Emily notably worked as the inaugural photo editor at New York Magazine’s fashion and women's interest brand, The Cut. She was integral to the site's 2012 relaunch from fashion blog to stand-alone multi-vertical women’s interest site, defining The Cut's visual identity and building a roster of photographers across the globe. Traffic increased 600% over her four-year tenure, and the print magazine created a six-page photo-driven Cut section in 2014 in response to its success.
Shornick graduated from Bard College and cut her teeth on internships at the International Center of Photography and Spin Magazine. After a stint overseeing 450+ photographers nationwide for a celebrity photo wire, she returned to editorial, freelancing for clients such as Conde Nast and b2b publisher American Lawyer Media.
Her work has been honored in American Photography, the PDN Photo Annual and by the Society of Publication Designers. Shornick is a frequent photography contest judge, recently serving on juries for American Photography 32 and the SPD Awards 53. She has written for PDN and Rangefinder and spoken across the country on strategies for emerging photographers. Emily also consults privately and mentors internationally through Mastered, a UK-based talent incubator. She resides in New York.
