When making decisions about endorsing pro photographers we don't just look at the glitz and glamour. We look at the talent. Those fabled few who work tirelessly to their own ends. We look for photographers who inspire, who lead, who create art from life.
Most of all, we look at people who are just like us. Like you or I. With dreams, ambitions and a desire to be better. Elemental Europe LTD are enormously proud to present to you three of the hardest working, genuinely well liked and hugely talented photographers in the UK, all from very different backgrounds.
Andy Hollingworth is probably the most decorated of our photographers. Specialising in comedians, Andy has recently photographed Steve Martin on tour, Rowan Atkinson & Ricky Gervais. In 2008, Andy was recognised for his work with a 16 page article in the 2008 British Comedy Awards Program.
His work is some of the most recognised in the world, featuring on tour posters across four continents for some of the most famous comedians ever to have graced our stages. Based in his studio in Chester, Andy often takes advantage of our hospitality at the Elemental Studio Complex when he is working with London and South East Based Comics.

Leon Neal broke into the UK news industry after winning "The Times Young Photographer of the Year" competition and after working at the world famous newspaper for a number of years, took a much-coveted staff position at one of the largest news agencies "Agence France-Presse". His list of endorsements read like a Who's Who of photography, and we are very proud to have him as part of our team.
Showcasing some of his best work on his incredibly successful blog, Leon has shot some of the biggest jobs of the century from "The Kiss" on the day of the Royal Wedding through to the general elections in Israel. He can always be found at the heart of breaking news events and is the man when it comes to endurance tests on our gear!
Duncan Kerridge is a specialist wedding photographer from Norfolk. His rise to fame and fortune has been meteoric, with commissions from celebrities across the UK and America.
Duncan only began taking photographs as a hobby, just over 8 years ago, and was quickly offered weddings and documentary work. His talent was obvious to all, and as such he is one of the most in demand wedding photographers in Europe, with bookings as far as three years ahead.
