Marc Elliott is a committed, experienced and enthusiastic photographer with a refreshing outlook on life. With a genuine love of the great outdoors, he draws from his own personal experiences to produce pictures that are fast becoming the whispers of some of Cornwall’s best loved photography. With a humble and calm attitude, Marc’s philosophy for his work is simple; to strip it back to the traditional way of thinking when making pictures, with a modern day touch.
Originally from Sheffield, Marc, who is an apprentice trained cabinet maker, has always been devoted to the great outdoors. He spent 25 years of his life rock climbing and travelling the world, where he gained most of his inspiration and passion for his natural surroundings. After 11 years of city life, Marc decided to leave the hustle and bustle behind him and move to North Cornwall, where he has enjoyed the tranquillity of the Cornish coast with his wife and two young daughters for the last eight years.
Due to family commitments and health reasons, Marc has said goodbye to his rock climbing days, but continues to use his photography as a progression from the natural environment he was surrounded by as a climber and loves nothing more than capturing the many different emotions and moods through his pictures. From his own personal experiences, Marc believes photography can be deeply therapeutic. Marc’s love of wild spaces stems from his passion of the great outdoors and capturing it through his photography brings him great satisfaction.
