My mother always loved to take pictures, so I learned how to shoot on a Minolta film camera when I was 12. I remember teaching myself how to use the light meter and balance aperture, shutter, and ISO, then waiting a week to get the prints back to find out if I did it right. Times have changed, but photography is still my passion and life's work, 20 years later.
Though I focus (no pun intended) on portraits, I truly love the variety that 15 years as a photographer affords me. My day can start with a sunrise engagement session, then move to a food shoot at a local restaurant, and end with a front-row view of an up-and-coming Austin band. To be able to make a living taking pictures is a gift, and to be constantly challenged is thrilling.
I enjoy outdoor shoots, and my favorites include Mueller Lake Park, Mt. Bonnell, and the soon-to-be-relocated Hope Outdoor Gallery. For head shots, there's no better spot than the blue tile wall on Sabine.See Portfolio & Book
Well, i started my own business named EllisPhotography due to my grandfather passing. While looking through old memories, i notice him and I did not have one picture together. So i thought about being a photographer to allow people to have pictures of there loved ones at a reasonable price.
I prefer working in natural light outside, because thats the bets lighting.
Mueller park in Austin is just so beautiful ! You can shoot almost anywhere there!See Portfolio & Book
