Welcome – I’m a brand story teller / photographer and my passion is making visual stories through a combination of creativity, insight and technical excellence to create original, beautiful and emotive imagery.
About me and my approach.
I’m a photographer with a background as a senior creative from the brand, advertising and design industries, where I give creative direction for brand development, advertising campaigns, brand communications and marketing.
Over the years I’ve been lucky to work with top photographers and cinematographers and it inspired me to take up the camera myself. I’ve had the good fortune to be trained in the technical side of photography and studio lighting by the same professional advertising photographers I was previously hiring and they have taught me many of the skills and techniques that set them apart.
As a photographer I shift my style to suit the brief rather than shoot in a single aesthetic. I’m not bound by a specific style or genre and instead respond to a diverse range of briefs to create sophisticated ‘on brand’ imagery.
Commercially I like to make clean polished imagery that can then be graded to suit the specific requirements of the project. Otherwise I draw on influences from the fashion and design industries, blended with experiential editorial and premium product photography, to create polished, emotive and engaging visual stories.
Private commissions can book confidently knowing they will enjoy the highest levels of professionalism, while agencies can relax having the assurance of a creative collaborator who speaks their language.
Where I work and play.
I’m available to work across western and greater Australia and New Zealand. When I’m not traveling and shooting you’ll find me shooting locally in Perth, Margaret River and surrounds, or in my studio based on the south coast near probably the most beautiful part of the coast before Margaret River.
What others said:
”We retained Elliot to create a comprehensive image library for the launch of our new Margaret River wine brand Wayfinder wInes. Elliot developed an insightful understanding of our brief, brand and motivations, and the library Elliot created perfectly captures the beauty and character of our vineyard, our people and our brand proposition.Annmarie HarrisGroup Marketing – Overstory
”We had a need for brand imagery for our distillery, along with advertising images of our products and also wanted a film that captured the complete McRobert Whisky making process from start to finish. Elliot came highly recommended to us so we got him in for a chat. What we liked most about him was not only the quality of his work, but also that he really spent the time needed to get to know us and gain an in-depth understanding of our brand story – He really cares about authenticity and quality and it shows in his work.Shane McRobertMaster Distiller – McRobert Distilling
