About Matt Ellacott
My name is Matt Ellacott and I am a phototgrapher in Oxford specialising in Weddings, Events, Graduations, Portraits – Vintage and Modern, and Creative Assignments.
I have have been taking photographs ever since I got my first camera in 1980 and I am very lucky that my career path has led me to making photography my job.
There is no greater satisfaction than capturing unique moments and connections, and I love the whole creative process and producing something special either for a client or for myself.
Many of my inspirations come from the 1920’s and 30’s, and vintage Hollywood and Film Noir portraits are some of my favourite photography styles. I also enjoy exploring different creative challenges, for example Renaissance style photographs. I love to work with performers, and have also photographed many dance events and festivals in the UK and Europe.
When I am not behind a camera, I am a Lindy Hop dance addict and adore Swing Music and old movies. I help run Oxford Lindy Hoppers and have been creating and producing dance festivals in Oxford since 2014. Travel is another huge passion of mine, and I have been fortunate enough to visit some wonderful destinations with my camera always in hand. The Art Deco splendour of New York City is my favourite destination. I am lucky to share these passions with my beautiful wife Eleanor.
