Hi, I'm Elliot.

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'm a thirty-five year ol', full-time wedding photographer, who relocated to Scotland to fulfil a dream of living in the Highlands... but didn't quite make it that far.

18 months ago I relocated to Edinburgh and it would be fair to say I'm the happiest I've ever been.

I've been shooting weddings ever since I was in my early twenties when a friend asked me to capture their day on the island of Rhodes. That was over 10 years ago now!

I've been full-time for the last two years. I now shoot some fifty weddings a year. I still can't believe it!

I also have a first-class degree in BA Press & Editorial Photography from Falmouth University. For my final project I won the "Graduate Photographer of the Year" from the South West Graduate Photography Prize and "Best in Show" from the Association of Press Photographers Student Awards.

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 The Americas 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 an incredible culture. I can't wait to go back one day. 

I'm also a bit of a geek at heart, I play the odd video game, enjoy talking about crypto and of course, cameras.
