Documentary Filmmaker and Photographer currently based between London and South Wales.

Since graduating from Falmouth University with a First Class BA Honors Degree in Marine and Natural History Photography, Ellie has worked as a freelance photographer and writer, creating content for companies and conservation programs such as The Maldives Whale Shark Research Program, BBC Wales, SurfGirl Magazine, Mother Goose Films and Beagle Media, amongst others. Working freelance has allowed Ellie to travel and challenge herself and her work, pushing her camera and storytelling skills and learning about different countries, habitats and cultures. Ellie enjoys searching for a narrative within her work and using it to raise awareness to conservation and social issues, particularly between humans and nature. 

Ellie is passionate about the natural world and studying Marine and Natural History Photography has given her knowledge and understanding of the habitats that she often photographs and films. Ellie is a PADI Rescue Diver and has spent many hours under the ocean photographing marine life, specifically on reefs, collecting data and researching Marine Protected Areas such as the South Ari Atoll in the Maldives. 

Having just finished her MA in Documentary Film at the University of the Arts in London, Ellie believes that filmmaking and activism come hand in hand, with her aim to inspire change and tell underreported stories from around the globe.

Her most recent film is called A Flooded Future, with a focus on climate change. This film is about the worst floods to hit rural welsh communities for decades, through the lens of a global pandemic. It will be screened at festivals this year.
