ELLY LUCAS PHOTOGRAPHY
Owner: Elly Lucas
Location: Derby, Derbyshire
Elly Lucas is a busy young freelance photographer based in Derby, England. Specialising in portraiture, her work has been described as ethereal, vintage, folksy and, to her delight, “like waking up and remembering the last fragments of your most beautiful dreams”.
Spurred on by her fascination with people and nature, Elly shoots a broad spectrum of portrait requirements ranging from fashion to music promo to wedding photography and more. Her work has featured in a broad variety of publications including The Guardian, The Independent, fRoots Magazine and more. She's also been delighted to get the front cover and a five page feature in the April 2012 edition of Practical Photography magazine and has previously shot for the likes of PLAIN LAZY clothing and Carluccio's alongside creating a host of album & single covers.
Elly uses a Canon 5D Mk III and adores prime lenses. She also favours location portraiture and likes to do the make-up at her shoots when she has time.
“Her quirky portraits ooze retro charm, while her deft blend of creative in-camera technique and considered post-processing belie her age and experience” - Practical Photography Magazine
“A brilliant photographer who's getting quite a reputation in the folk world!” - Mike Harding, BBC Radio 2
"Every time I see a new album and I look at the cover shots and think 'Those are good!' or 'Those or innovative!' or 'Those are clever!' - I look in the album notes and I go 'Oh! Elly Lucas!'" - Genevieve Tudor, BBC Radio Shropshire
