LIA ELIÀS Strong visual story telling – raw, intimate, poetic
Photography & Videography
With experience of over 17 years I offer reportage work focused on capturing special moments in between and finding the details and wonders in your desired context. My expertise lies in effortless creation of reportage images which are raw, direct, intense, immediate, highly poetic and intimate, disclosing memorable, emotional moments in between. My visual language is direct yet poetical. I am passionate to derive from sterile sharpness, clean atmospheres and, where possible, to avoid artificial light, instead working with available light using small focal accents by utilizing light reflectors where needed.
During sessions I find joy in spontaneity, daring with elegance and slow adventure mixed with technical precision.
To deliver high quality images to you, a smooth work flow via transparent communication and coordination ahead of time paired with an easy, relaxed working atmosphere and environment on site are important to me. Treating you, your every subject (or product) with respect and curiosity I see my job as a privilege to create meaningful content – each person, each project beautiful and a unique challenge. Lightness and humor on site/set are equally important to me as the creative flow and high focus work effort.
· When booking me for a quiet intimate birth moment, a travel or event reportage, you will hardly notice my presence; I work like a shadow in the room.
· When booking me for product or portrait sessions I will guide you (or the crew) in a direct leadership with easy, fluent style.
