He started back in 2004 when he was only fourteen
years old. Elie had his first digital
camera and began to explore the beauty of this world through his lens.
He gained more interest in photography through reading books and articles, watching
video tutorials online to improve his skills. He maintained this passion of
his, and complemented it with a degree in Graphic Design from Notre Dame
It started out as a hobby till he pushed it to the
professional level. “I never worked for the money; I always did it for the
pleasure of making photos” Elie says. He likes taking shots of random portraits,
and moving objects in action because of the agility they demand. He is
currently settled in Birmingham, Alabama where he works and discovers new
subjects to photograph.
