From the age of 16 it became evident that Ellenor had a knack for storytelling with her friends often referring to her as “Filmenor”. Sometimes her brain moves too fast for her mouth and where most would stop and wait for their thoughts to catch up, Ellenor uses her excitement & ideas as a creative channel which earnt her a place in Australia’s Prestigious Victorian College of The Arts Film & Television course at the age of 18.
Since then, Ellenor has gone on to study under Vilmos Zigmond (ACE) at the Budapest Cinematography Masterclass as well as being selected to participate in the Filmmaker Institute at the Cannes Film Festival with the Creative Minds Group in 2015. Since her return, Ellenor has worked rigorously on tourism campaigns, music videos, fashion films and commercial content for international brands such as Ford, Chevrolet, Tourism Australia and Qantas. Returning to narrative, Ellenor’s short film ‘Meat and Potatoes’ which she directed, was accepted into the World’s Largest Short Film Festival - Tropfest, for its 25th Anniversary where it took home 2nd Place, Best Actress and Best Production Design.
Currently based in Los Angeles, USA & Melbourne, Australia
Ellenor's film background makes her style of photography particularly unique. Her fashion and portrait photographs have a candid aesthetic. She often shoots in the most naturalistic style as possible. Her background in direting cinema means her approach to collaborating is incredibly well communicated, relaxed and well thought out.
From Editorials to the runway, Ellenor’s framing is cinematic and borderline voyeuristic. Her ability to photograph talent in this way has seen her work with clients such as Toni & Guy, Cosmopolitan, Melbourne Fashion Week, Lilya and Epokhe.
