Elf Evans began his artistic career in Santa Monica, California as an Abstract Expressionist Painter inspired by artists from the New York School of painting. He attended Hollywood Art Centre School on the GI Bill, and also studied commercial photography at Santa Monica City College. Working as an assistant to such fine photographers as Andrew Strauss in Los Angeles, and later for Jeff Hicks in Los Gatos, California has helped Elf develop his unique“Styll Lyfe style of studio compositions.
Colour and lighting are the immediate methods of distinguishing his techniques from other photographers. And since moving to France in 2008 he has continued to exhibit, impress and strive for the ever illusive best possible ingredients for his compositions....much like a talented 'chef' choosing the right elements for a fine meal.
