Elle Borgward is an Editorial and Lifestyle Photographer with 8 years combined retouching and photographic experience currently residing in Fremantle, Western Australia. Specialising in portraiture and capturing moments, she seeks the unique, the beautiful and sometimes the confronting in her work. Elle’s photojournalistic style, infused with creativity and conceptual musings sets her apart in capturing compelling story elements, whilst her post production expertise give her an edge in large scale productions, commercial projects and editorial content.
Elle provides high quality imagery to a variety of publications, magazines and clients throughout Australia and has been published nationally in print and online. Within each project she undertakes, Elle loves being involved throughout the creative and production process and is always interested in working with new people, focussed on delivering outstanding results and exceeding expectations, to a deadline and on budget.
Elle is an inquisitive soul who loves to travel, explore new places, and meet people from all walks of life along the way. Connection is a big part of her visual language, adding layers of depth and creativity – a point of difference in approach which is evident in her images. With a love for capturing raw emotion and all the things that make the world beautiful, edgy and sometimes unforgiving, Elle finds new ways to tell the oldest stories on earth and is a talent worth watching.
