Hi, I'm Elliot.
I'm a thirty-six year ol', full-time wedding photographer, who relocated to Scotland to fulfil his dream of living in The Highlands... but I didn't quite make it that far.... I've been living in Edinburgh for 2 years now and I absolutely love it here.
For much of twenties I worked at a bank. Then one day, a friend asked me to photograph their big day on the island of Rhodes and the rest is history. I've been on this journey for the last 10 years and love, love, love what I do.
We are lucky to work with two awesome associate videographers (Dan & Pete), an assistant photographer (Alex), and a video editor (Daniel, who helps when it gets really busy).
Who doesn't love a good story? I do, and it's my pleasure to share one with you!
For the last couple years now, I have been traveling around Scotland in search of modern day hermits for my 'Off-grid Scotland' project. This is an ongoing series that was featured by The Guardian as well as other media outlets such as the BBC Scotland Channel.
The series has won me some awards such as the 'Portrait of Britain 2020' and finalist in the 'Scottish Portraits Awards 2020'. Want to know more? I love to talk about my off-grid stories!!
I also have a first-class degree in BA Press & Editorial Photography from Falmouth University.
I'm also an absolute workaholic. If I'm not shooting a wedding, I'm probably behind my computer, working on an edit or developing the business in some form; Talking to clients over zoom; Watching tutorials or working on my marketing. The list is never ending...
In my spare time, I'm a huge fan of travelling and the outdoors: hiking, mountain biking, surfing are my favourite ways to switch off. I recently achieved a lifelong dream of owning my own camper van, which is perfect for crashing out in after those late night weddings.
I've spent lots of time in places like: New Zealand, The USA, Australia, and Turkey (I lived in Istanbul for a short short-while). In 2015 I did the backpacker thing and travelled around South & Central America and parts of SE Asia. My favourite place travelled has to be Puru. It has everything from The Amazon, The Andes mountain range, beaches, deserts and people. I can't wait to go back one day - maybe to even capture a wedding..
I'm also a bit of a geek at heart, I play the odd video game, enjoy talking about crypto and of course, cameras.
