I’m a London-based commercial, fashion and portrait photographer. 

I love soft light and filmic grains; painterly portraits set against canvas backdrops; embellished details and pre-Raphelite romanticism; off-black shadows and a chiaroscuro still life seen through the viewfinder.

A few years ago I graduated from Magdalene College, Cambridge with a degree in English Literature, a distrust of medieval English and a love of visual storytelling. I’m also an avid traveller; to date, I’ve lived in Singapore, Hong Kong, England, Trinidad and France.

When I’m not photographing in the studio or post-processing, you can find me moonlighting as a watercolour illustrator and calligrapher. Artwork from my drafting table can be found at www.ella-jackson.com.
