About Me


There is a uniqueness and sometimes edginess to Elaine’s shots that often shows the subject in a light they have not seen with previous photos. That is the key to generating results that do not disappoint.”

K Schneider 



Hi there! I’m Elaine, a commercial photographer and photojournalist. A dual citizen of the UK and Switzerland, I was born and bred in England spending most of my life there. Later I moved to Switzerland, which has become my base.  My work predominately concentrates within the two countries. Areas of work :- Commercial, PR & Press, Corporate, Event and Portraiture photography.  However, as you will see from my portfolio, photography has taken me further afield. One of my many pleasures is travel and I never miss an opportunity to capture the feel and ambiance of my trips through the camera lens. Indeed, the two go hand-in-hand.


With nearly 20 years experience in the city of London commercial and corporate management world at senior management level, not only am I comfortable in a large-scale event setting but I also bring my seasoned advisory service on what works best for my clients. Happy clients inevitably mean happy photographer.


Art and the creative process have been with me from day one. From having some of my early school work exhibited in the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, to later be a willing individual when given the chance to periodically reignite this passion. This came in the form of friends commissioning me to do art pieces, predominately as a wedding gift — this was done with great pleasure. Art came back with full force in the form of photography. Through the many praises and awards received for my work, I have combined my differing skills to develop my business.

About the work:

I believe the best and most natural images are made when people are themselves, relaxed and largely unaware the very moment they are being captured. The personalities shine. The mood at the time is freeze-framed and the emotion is clear to see. On numerous occasions, I have been told that my natural flare for art and an eye for good composition are what bring out the best in each individual or reportage image created. I enjoy the feeling of being ‘the fly on the wall’ when on environmental, sport or event assignments. I particularly relish the challenge of translating clients’ requirements and/or ideas into images they are happy with. Not much more to add to this other than the cliche of ‘I love what I do’.

In summary and if it is possible, do what you enjoy and do it well. The rewards will come later.


Please take a look at my portfolio of work. As one client puts it ‘….I can see that you really enjoy what you do…’
