Illan (pronounced E-lahn) is a photographer who takes all of his shots on location to ground them with a substantial sense of reality.
He works alongside the Star Wars license and operates at both ends of the photographic scale from art based shots to the more dramatic action one-shots. The variation in his portfolio allows for an insight into his creativity and his continuous experimentation with different photographic styles and approaches.
We particularly like the up close and personal character shots with an authentic location as a backdrop as it really helps to capture the personality of the subject and ground them in our world. The use of practical effects as opposed to digital enhances the sense of reality in Illan’s portfolio and you always know that you are going to see something different the next time he posts.
