Meet Emily McCartney Eiguren

True to her roots, Emily McCartney Eiguren specializes in western photography where she combines her love for the ranching way of life with her creative image making and passion for art. Emily enjoys the many travels her career brings and says that the places she sees and the people she meets through her photography will always be the most impactful part of the journey.

Not only does Emily come from a multigenerational ranching family in Texas, but married into one in Oregon as well. Because of this, Emily understands production agriculture and those that live it. Alongside the travels and great clients her freelance commercial and ranch photography career brings, Emily operates Roadrunner Gallery, an online art gallery selling her own prints and fine art of the American West.

Emily graduated from Texas Tech University in 2017 with an agricultural communications degree and launched her career as a full-time freelance photographer. In December of 2019 Emily opened Roadrunner Gallery in her hometown of Throckmorton, Texas. Roadrunner Gallery housed Emily's photographic prints, fine art and goods, as well as featured other artists’ works, periodically. The brick and mortar Roadrunner Gallery closed in May of 2022 and went fully online after 2.5 great years of bringing arts, events, and fellowship to her rural community she cherishes so much.

The new online version of Roadrunner Gallery specializes in made-to-order prints, offering 50+ of her most loved western images as signed prints. Emily creates her more exclusive fine art pieces as custom framed canvases and has those available privately, as well as through invitational western art shows throughout the year.

With a growing portfolio consisting of ranch lifestyle, editorial, and commercial photography, Emily stays busy shooting for renowned outdoor companies such as YETI, Western Horseman, B&W Trailer Hitches, Resistol, the American Quarter Horse Association, and more. She thoroughly enjoys both sides of her career- the western art scene, as well as the traveling outdoor photographer life.

Emily and her husband Nick got married in October of 2023. Together they enjoy spending much of their time training horses, helping their families on the ranch, and traveling to team ropings, rodeos, and horse shows.
