Elke is a travel and style photographer based in East London, UK. Born abroad and introduced to visual travel storytelling through the work and influence of her father, she owned her first camera at the age of 8.
Her background in architecture influences Elke's photography significantly, which is evident in the use of composition, lines, and light. She is a meticulous researcher and careful editor, while shooting at lifestyle speed. With a passion for details, Elke creates images that tell rich and beautiful stories and has become known for a signature visual style.
Her portfolio records day-to-day scenes of contemporary creative culture, the transient beauty found in the landscapes of travel and adventures in the great outdoors – all seen through an urbanite's eye. In constant search of new places, cultures and flavours, she captures the excitement of the open road and new locations, but also the joy of returning to favourite haunts and sharing them with friends and community.
Working with clients, she aims to fuse her own style with theirs to create strong imagery within existing visual identities. She loves to share the client’s story with her global audience as well as providing high quality travel and lifestyle content. Elke enjoys to curate streams of imagery in fresh and relevant ways, helping to find the visual voice of places and products and supporting social media strategies and engagement for brands and destinations.
