Hi, I am Elliot Caunce.
I'm a huge fan of the outdoors: hiking, surfing and wild camping are my favourite ways to switch-off. I'm also a bit of a geek at heart, I'm currently playing through The Last of US 2 - again.
For the last two years I've been working on a documetnary photography project called 'Off-grid Scotland'. In this still and moving image series, I have documented Scotland's remaining modern day hermits. The project has been featured in lots of places like The Guardian and BBC Scotland. I have won several awards for the work including one from the 'Portrait of Britain 2020'.
I love adventuring, be that at home or far away. Since relocating to Scotland a couple years ago, I have to constantly pinch myself. I initially moved here to be somebody, but when things didn't work out, I decided to stay because once you get a taste for Scotland, nowhere else compares. My job enables me to explore and meet people, and I feel very lucky for that.
I've also spent lots of time in places like: New Zealand, The USA, Australia, and Turkey (I lived in Istanbul for a short shortwhile). And in 2015 I did the backpacker thing, and travelled around The Americas, finishing off with some time SE Asia.
I grew-up in The Cotswolds, and I also spent a few studying photography in Cornwall. I went to Falmouth University where I got a first class degree. I've been based in Dundee for quite a while but I'm thinking of moving to Edinburgh in the new year. My wedding clients are all over Scotland so it doesn't really matter where I am based but Edinburgh seems to be the most central for my clients.
