El is a commercial photographer based in Toronto, but her career began in Ireland as a Photojournalist - hired by the best-selling daily newspapers, she graduated to editorial work landing weekly magazine covers. Amongst numerous Irish publications, her portraits have been featured in Vogue Australia and The Huffington Post.
She accompanied Barack Obama on his Irish state visit, went shoulder to shoulder with the Irish rugby team, took Conor McGregor’s first magazine cover ever as he made his name in the UFC and photographed countless Olympic athletes.
Upon moving to Canada she brought her studio experience to the commercial world and focused her energy on the food and beverage industry capturing campaigns for Tim Horton’s, Budweiser, Pepsi, Absolut, Stella Artois, Lindt, Molson Coors, Kraft-Heinz, Heineken, Tetley, Kelloggs, Canada Bread, and Delissio amongst many others.
El’s personal projects on emigration, mental health and her fan favourite, “The Dogs of Lockdown” have been shared internationally and she continues to create when not on assignment.
