“Life is like a camera. Just focus on what’s important and capture the good times, develop from the negatives and if things don’t work out, just take another shot.” -unknown-
My name is Ellie and I was born in the beautiful Persia, a place where I first discovered my love and passion for fine art. As a child I spent most of my time with a paintbrush in hand; creating art wherever and whenever I could and capturing beauty whenever I saw it. Around the age of 16 I picked up my first camera and my life changed forever. I realised the potential the humble camera had to capture more than just pictures but thoughts, feeling and emotions too.
My move to New Zealand was the start a new chapter and a new opportunity to capture life on film in this beautiful country which has welcomed me so warmly. For many years I worked as Marketing Manager but photography remained my passion. I longed to have my own professional photography company and once I made the leap of faith to follow my dream, everything changed.
My aim is to capture more than just your faces in my photography. I want to capture the laughter, the love, the passion and the emotion surrounding you and your loved ones. My style of photography is designed to capture the beauty of life and relationships and love shared between couples and families.
I have always believed that life is a constant journey of learning and I always aim to better myself and evolve my skills. This is why I try to take a workshop with best photographers in Auckland every year. Last year I had session with Perspective and this year I had workshop with Danelle Bohane which helped me understand my craft even more.
I welcome the chance to work with you to capture your own story. Welcome to my world xoxo
