New York City born, Eliot Siegel lives in London and has been a professional fashion, portrait and fine art photographer for 30 years.
He has worked for a multitude of fashion photography magazines in New York, Milan, Paris, Madrid and London and has shot for Bloomingdales, Macy’s NY, Reebok, Debenhams, Selfridges, Marks and Spencer, Warehouse, Littlewoods, Figleaves, and many others.
As a portrait photographer in London, Eliot has photographed Angelina Jolie, Damien Lewis, Gary Lineker, Martin Amis, Tess Daly, Kate Moss, Kelly Brooke, Charles Dance and a host of other very well known people, as well as hundreds of people without famous names, but all just as interesting.
Eliot has had ten solo exhibitions of his fine art photography projects at art galleries across the UK. He lectures and gives workshops on fashion photography, portrait photography, and fine art photography at various colleges, and has been an Associate Lecturer in Photography (www.eliotsiegel.com) at Plymouth University in England. Check out Eliot’s books: Fashion Photography Course (Barron’s) and latest book, Photographing Women or Photographing Models, depending on whether is it the US or the British publication.
As a fine art photography student at Southern Illinois University, Eliot dedicated himself purely to the genres of Urban Landscape, edgy Portrait Photography (www.eliotsiegelportraits.com) and the Erotic Nude, in studio and on location. A 100% black and white photographer back then, Eliot has since branched out and accepted colour photography as a wonderful way to creatively express his vision, as well as Polaroid Transfer techniques that add a painterly, vintage quality to an otherwise very contemporary sense of style and attitude.
