ABOUT ELLE HALLEY......
Elle defies any sort of stereotype. She started working for one of London's top creative marketing agencies at the tender age of 17 and studied Event Design at Central Saint Martins before the bright lights of Soho lured her into the world of fashion and events.
Elle has always had a passion for photography as, by her own admission, she’s useless with paint or pencil. Her personal work is often playfully subversive and mildly contentious. Professionally she has a unique ability to create exceptional brand stories and visual narrative through her images and maverick marketing tactics, whether it be in the commercial or artistic sectors.
She Says: “I try and keep ego out of my work, it creates a much greater sense of diversity, to me it’s about delivering the best marketing angle for my clients, whichever sector they are in”.
Widely published across all mediums and with several award-winning campaigns, Elle also has some dubious accolades that sum up her chameleon-esque personal brand of eccentricity, notably playing the violin for the Queens 70th Birthday, creating Jamiroquai’s first fur hat, hosting a Birthday party for Robbie Williams that he refused to attend and giving the boiler suit a fashion moment.
"Elle's images are uniquely captivating and thought-provoking. Her approach to visual story-telling is powerfully compelling and spot on for artists and musicians."
Miguel Kertsman, Composer, Producer, Recording Artist; Director MA Programs in Music Management and Media Music at Danube University Krems
" Elle is a unique and creative individual. Her alt-world view of culture and sensuality is both provocative and sensitive. Her photography manages to capture both the spontaneity and the depth of human frailty. She is an incisive and sympathetic voyeur who is both fearless and commanding in her desire to portray her chosen themes and fascinations."
Dr Gary Pritchard, Dean of Media, Ravensbourne
"Subversive tittillating and unique, I love Elle's style and camerawork."
Dan Edwards, Series Producer and Director
"Borderline bonkers and brilliant in equal measure - she's the last photographer I would get naked for, but I always get naked for Elle. Her powerful concepts created an album cover that made my career in Hollywood and Shanghai."
Frederick Snow, Musical Reprobate
"Elle's images are daring, provocative and rich in sexually charged narrative - tailor-made for the music industry!"
Harry Leckstein, Tileyard Education
