Photographer-turned-director Emily Maye has joined Rogue for UK representation.
Having grown up with ambitions to be a dancer, an injury and a passion for Baz Lurhmann led Maye to shift her creative attention behind the camera. She has since become known for her distinctive approach to sports films, capturing the passion, intensity, and sacrifice of athletes in arresting fashion.
It's this tenacious style which grabbed Rogue's attention, as co-founder and executive producer Charlie Crompton explains: "Like all the best sports people, you always want to make it look easy - and Emily’s shooting style feels effortless."
"It’s incredibly difficult to find a new angle on filming athletes, their rituals, sacrifices, dedication and teamwork but Emily does it instinctively and always with her unique eye that somehow manages to make every frame feel inclusive, real and so authentic and attainable you feel they were speaking to you."

Having built a reel replete with high-profile brands including ESPN, The North Face, and Nike, Maye is eager to continue expanding her commercial horizons. Her forensic attention to detail and kinetic aesthetic make her a no-brainer for brands who want to bring visual vigour to the screen, and she's raring to stick her teeth into the UK market.
"I'm confident that in Rogue I have found my team," Maye says. "Their knowledge of film and sport is unmatched and their track record for making great work won me over. The UK has been an important market for me since the start of my career and it's one of my favourite places to work… the only question now is which football team should I support?"
