About George Elliott
Photography is a journey of people, places and things…all captured in one special moment by the photographer's lens. It's actually a journey of stories, and, just like a writer always has a pen and notepad with him, my camera goes wherever I do.
I am a Birmingham, Alabama based photographer whose other careers have included being a public relations executive with Bellsouth and the Executive Director of the Nonprofit Resource Center of Alabama.
As one who has always been enchanted by the ocean and the ambiance of small coastal towns, i try to capture the "beach time" so many of us yearn for. Water, whether in the ocean, lakes, ponds and streams, has always called to me. Somewhere deep inside the rhythm and sounds of water and waves sing a special song for me.
Vibrant colors are also a mainstay in my photographs. Newspaper photographers taught me much about composition and color. They also taught me to see the possibility of photographs where others might not; they developed my photographic eye, so to speak.
I am married with three children, one of whom, Amelia, died in 1995 at age 17. Often I take photographs of our world for her, because she didn't have a chance to see all she should have. I share them because she would want you to see the beauty all around us each day and tell you to take it all in.
