Elisha Knight is a published and award-winning commercial and editorial portrait photographer currently based in Chicago, Illinois. She was born in Basingstoke, England but moved seven years later and was raised in Castle Rock, Colorado, where her love for photography formed. From a young age she has known that she wanted to pursue a career with photography, it was inevitable, and she could not imagine doing anything different. She has had years of experience with many different photography styles but, now, she solely focuses on portrait work. Elisha pursued an education at Columbia College Chicago where she worked toward a Bachelor of Arts in Commercial Photography.

Her goal when taking any portrait is to capture the subtle nuances that are brought forth in the most honest way possible. Elisha is dedicated to consistently creating high-quality, trendsetting content and providing clients with an experience that will inspire their own creative process.
