Meet Ace St Lucia Photographer
Kirk Elliott holds a double major Bachelor of Science degree in Geology and Chemistry from the University of the West Indies, Mona, Jamaica having won a European Development Fund scholarship to pursue training in Geothermal Engineering in the late eighties when the Government of St Lucia embarked on a project of geothermal exploration in Saint Lucia’s world famous drive in volcano – the Sulphur Springs, said to be the only drive in volcano in the world…
Returning to St Lucia in 1991 Elliott discovered that the geothermal project had been deemed too expensive, suddenly leaving him with no gainful employment. Ever the entrepreneur, he jumped straight into his true passion of photography which he had also pursued through high school in St Lucia and also at university.
