Elle Halley started working for New Solutions creative marketing agency at the tender age of 17, studied Event Design at Central Saint Martins before the bright lights of Soho lured her into the world of fashion and events.
Elle has a passion for photography, and by her own admission, she’s useless with paint or pencil. Her personal work is often playfully subversive and contentious, but professionally she has a unique ability to create exceptional brand stories through her images, and often maverick marketing tactics, whether it be in the commercial or artistic sectors. She says: “I try and keep ego out of my work, it creates a much greater sense of diversity, to me it’s about delivering the best marketing angle for my clients, whichever sector they are in.”
Widely published and with several award-winning campaigns, Elle also has some dubious accolades that sum up her chameleon diversity and personal brand of eccentricity, notably playing the violin for the Queens 70th Birthday, creating one of Jamiroquai’s first fur hats, hosting a birthday party for Robbie Williams that he refused to attend and giving the boiler suit a fashion moment.
“Elle is a unique and creative individual. Her alt-world view of culture and sensuality is both provocative and sensitive. Her photography manages to capture both the spontaneity and the depth of human frailty. She is an incisive and sympathetic voyeur who is both fearless and commanding in her desire to portray her chosen themes and fascinations” Dr Gary Pritchard, Dean of Media, Ravensbourne
