Hi, thank you for stopping by! My name is Eli and I am a freelance photographer based in Detroit, MI.
My craft is to tell stories - the good ones, hard ones, can’t convey through words ones. My hope is that anyone looking at my images will see far deeper than just the photo, and are compelled to know the rest of the story. I love coming alongside organizations, brands, and businesses to tell their stories.
I believe in connection and truth telling. I try everyday to bring my whole self to the table, broken and wholly present, and that is the attitude and mindset I strive for in my work as photographer. I feel so privileged to have the opportunity to tell stories with my photos in a raw and honest way. I don't aim for perfect posing or detailed shot lists. My goal is to document and create photographs filled with emotion, culture, and simplicity.
I believe that every story is worth telling, and it would be a privilege to tell yours!
