Welcome to Gail Elliott Photography!
I am a North East based Travel Photographer and through my work, I have travelled the world, but will always love my home region. During my travels, I circumnavigated the globe a staggering sixteen times and have been fortunate to visit many UNESCO World Heritage Sites as well as some of the most beautiful places on earth.
Various extended journeys have taken me to many of the world's top tourist destinations including multiple visits to Uluru (Ayer's Rock) Australia, The Great Wall & The Terracotta Warriors in China, the Taj Mahal in India, Machu Picchu in Peru, Angkor Wat in Cambodia, The Grand Palace in Bangkok & the 14th-century Wat Phra Singh Temple complex in Chang Mai, Thailand as well as visiting the ancient cities of Bagan & Mandalay in Myanmar.
I have taken wildlife safaris to Masai Mara in Kenya, Sabi-Sands in Kruger and Phinda Private Reserve in KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa and will be on location again in the Greater Kruger region of South Africa in February, 2019. I was on location in Namibia in early 2018 to shoot and discover the amazing Sossousvlei region, which is a dream for any landscape photographer. I also have had the incredible opportunity to spend the last three Summers in Alaska, USA an area I have become very familiar with and where I have had the opportunity to fine-tune my technical skills and abilities with native wildlife.
Closer to home (a little), my travels have taken me to the Holy Land of Israel visiting Jerusalem and Bethlehem, the ancient city of Petra in Jordan as well as taking in the sights of the incredible antiquities in Egypt including The Great Pyramids of Giza & Saqqara, the world famous Valley of the Kings where Tutankhamun's tomb is located near Luxor, and Abu Simbel in the Upper Nile!
There are beautiful and arresting sights everywhere, sometimes you just need to have a look! Through my love of travel photography, my passion has developed further and one of my favourite subjects is photographing people, whether young or old and capturing their true spirit and personality!
At home in the North East of England, I am fortunate to have both coastal and rural locations on my doorstep to capture beautiful scenic landscapes in a region I am proud to call home! When not travelling, I also enjoy commissions for sports and event photography as well as family & newborn portraits.
I hope you enjoy browsing through some of my favourite images of people, places and animals. All of which are available to purchase as prints, which can be mounted for an additional fee or in canvas format. They make great gifts for yourself or a loved one and more details can be found by contacting me direct at firstname.lastname@example.org
