Elli Dean - Commercial Photographer - Corporate

I am a commercial photographer, specialising in marketing photography for a diverse range of clients and sectors. After a short career as a military photographer, I graduated in Fine Art & Design from London Guildhall University and started my photography career in London – mainly concentrating in corporate photography for London-based clients. I now work throughout the UK taking photography commissions for companies from the private sector, charities, local authorities and the education sector – I specialise in photography for marketing, PR editorial and events. My photographs are regularly being used in corporate literature, marketing materials, advertising and the press, as well as websites, social media and other online and printed communications:

Photography for Schools and the education sector:
Education photography is one of my specialist areas. I work with schools, educational charities and other education-related organisations on both photography and graphic design projects. I have a great working relationship with teaching staff, management and students alike. My shooting style is natural and relaxed which makes people feel at ease around me - resulting in natural yet impactful shots. My photos are used for prospectuses, marketing, advertising, events, PR and fundraising materials.
My clients include:
• schools from both the private and state sectors
• pre-school and early years education
• educational charities
• educational trusts
• local authorities

Marketing and PR Photography:
I help companies to grow and promote their business with professional photography that showcases best the work they do. I have extensive experience shooting products, lifestyle, interiors, food and of course people! Each one of my clients is individual and I make sure I know their product, target audience and marketing requirements to enable me to come up with the best photography solution to their needs. I work closely on briefs and ideas with business owners or marketing departments.
My photos are used in my clients’ marketing materials, advertising, products catalogues, websites and press releases.

Corporate Events Photography:
I cover award ceremonies, conferences and other large corporate events, mainly in the City and central London. I am usually booked as the main and only photographer for large scale events, as my clients know of my ability and experience working a busy event without missing a thing! I produce excellent photos covering receptions, dinners, speeches, delegates and sponsors, awards presentations and entertainment. I turn around photos the next day so my clients can use them immediately for press releases and social media.

Architectural and Interiors Photography:
My clients in this sector include:
• architects, interior designers and building contractors who use my photos to showcase their finished work (and sometimes also work-in-progress).
• editorial photography – this is mainly shooting interiors for articles in magazines featuring homes and interiors.
• estate agents – who use my photos to sell houses!

I have a relaxed and friendly personality, yet I'm 100% professional! I am known for making people feel at ease and work in an unobtrusive style. If you like my photography approach and think I could be the right photographer for you or your company, I would love to hear from you! Contact
