‘Beneath the Veil’ is Elise’s most recent personal project with a focus on body curves, textures, and tone.
The use of a veil symbolises barriers and change. Close crops of the model dominate this series and build on the intimacy that surrounds marriage.
The dream-like quality surrounding these images is based on that of Sandro Botticelli’s painting titled ‘The Spring’.
Models and product were captured in the studio using vast diffusers to caress the skin and highlight the shoes form.
Elise draws performances out of her models for this series titled ‘Chanel I Love You’.
It focuses on the craft and beauty of Chanel jewellery, sitting juxtaposed by the provocative and high energy characters.
Elise set out to capture the youth and beauty in all of us with this quirky personal project.
Under the watchful eye of security, Elise shot ‘Black Out’ for JFW Magazine.
