Emile served in the Royal Marines for 12 years. He served several tours of Iraq and Afghanistan. After leaving the military in 2012 he went into body guarding stars and security on ships against Somali pirates. Emile wasn't content with working in the security industry as he didn't find it rewarding. After meeting a guy going to fight ISIS, Emile bought a camera and booked a flight to the Middle East which led him to making Robin Hood Complex. He believes a camera is more powerful than a rifle.
