Thank you for taking the time to look at my work. Please feel free to contact me either via email or over the phone. I’m more than happy to discuss your needs or answer any questions that you may have. If you would like to arrange a 'no obligation' consultation meeting with me and see more examples of my work in my studio please do get in touch. I do try to get back to people as soon as I can, normally within 24hrs, howver this is dependent upon my whereabouts and commissions at the time.
Whether you require my services for a wedding, commercial shoot, or training seminar I will approach the task with equal professionalism and enthusiasm. I do everything that I can to ensure that my service exceeds my clients expectations. My portfolio is only as good as my photography. It is essential to me that I maintain a high standard in every aspect of my work.
Sean Elliott is a full time professional photographer based in the Newcastle Upon Tyne in the North East Of England. He works from his photographic studio based in the Biscuit Factory art gallery in the creative quarter of the city, Newcastle upon Tyne.
Born 1977, in Gdynia in northern Poland from English and Polish parents I have been fortunate enough to have had a rich and stimulating childhood. All my life I have had a thirst for creativity. Today, it is still this thirst that searches for new experiences and techniques to inform and inspire my work.
I developed an interest in photography and the visual arts early on. Throughout my childhood I continually applied drawing and painting, spending a great deal of my time illustrating .I was particularly interested in the art of airbrushing. I was first introduced to photography as a medium during my early college education. My first camera was an old Russian Zenith SLR. From college I then went on to study Industrial Product design at the University of Northumbria.
Whilst at university I immersed myself in design and technology. A self confessed computer boffin, I fine tuned my skills in Photoshop, Illustrator, 3d modeling, computer animation, video editing and photography. With such a diversity of skills I took up a placement designing computer games for an international games developer. I also spent some time as a graphic designer for a well respected design consultancy.
After spending too much time in front of a computer screen I went on to take up a full time post of Lecturer in Photography, Digital Arts and Digital Imaging to adult learners across the North East of England. In addition to this I have also contributed technically to a number of national photographic magazines and am always looking for exciting new methods of teaching and training photography.
After nine year lecturing I recently made the transition to full time freelance photographer. I consider myself lucky to be doing a job I love so much. Photography allows me to work in the diverse and creative environment in which I thrive, enabling my work to be fresh and innovative. In addition to my commercial practice, I continue to lecture for adult learning classes, train and mentor on a corporate and individual capacity and am often required to deliver photographic workshops a to a variety of groups across the UK.
As a photographer I am really excited by the future of the industry. I feel fortunate to be young enough yet old enough witnessed both sides of the digital revolution. I hear a lot of photographers worry about the recent boom of interest in photography. It is fair to say there is a lot of new photographers coming onto the scene, never before has the medium been so widely appreciated and understood; the competition, in my mind, is a positive development.
More and more I see the fusion of still and moving image. Photography in itself is a tool to convey narrative and the accessibility of video now allows the medium of digital storeytelling to really make its mark - this is something I am currently interested in.
This photograph was taken at a wedding Sean shot a few months ago at the Baltic Art Gallery in Gateshead. It has gone down a storm(trooper) at Sky News. Read the article at here.
