Ella and Friends Photography, Melbourne Victoria

How did you get started as a photographer?

From 19 years old onwards I have been fortunate to have been able to travel all over the world. During my travels, I developed a keen interest in capturing images of my experiences.

Tell us about a day in the life of a professional photographer …

I’m so lucky to get to go out to Melbourne’s great locations and photograph its four-legged inhabitants and their families. Usually, first thing in the morning, or later in the afternoon to take advantage of the “golden hours,” we capture them in their favourite place – outdoors.

If you could photograph 1 thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?

That’s easy, I already am, Dogs ( mostly ) cats and their families. What could be better?

What is the best thing about your job?

In my area of Photography, I get to spend time with dogs, and the best people in the world – people that love dogs and cats. I love the opportunity to create images that will help capture a moment of the relationship that they have with their pets.

Tell us something we don’t know about professional photography …

That since the advent of the “digital age” more time is spent in front of the computer than the camera.

Here’s a blank cheque! What are you going to spend it on for your business?

Easy, someone to look after all the administration.

If you could photograph someone famous, who would it be and why?

Anyone that has a deep connection with animals, such as Ricky Gervais – and it would be fun at the same time.
