• Hi! Welcome to ELLENZILLA photography, and thanks for stopping by! My blog is a little bit business, and a little bit personal. My goal is to share with you the girl behind the lens, and give a better insight to my personal photography style.

    I live in Houston, TX, though originally haled from Barnet, England. I love documenting anything I find beautiful in life. I'm obsessed with traveling and capturing my experiences, but capturing fleeting moments of happiness and love from others and sharing these memories with them is a gift I truly love to give. I specialize in portraiture and event photography, but I'm interested in all sorts of things, so please contact me for any reason! I'd love to know more about you, so be sure to say hi! I always love a new friend.

harry callahan

these two photographs were done for my photography class and we were instructed to make our own versions of two photos of our choosing, by a list of photographers. i chose harry callahan. i was very inspired by his work, and find all of his work absolutely beautiful. he was known for taking pictures of his every day life  (which often included his GORGEOUS wife) and making these every-day-life photographs intriguing, which is no easy task. he took photos of the life around him where he found and saw beauty, and i try to do the same thing, so it was nice to see another point of view. i don’t often go looking to take pictures, but when life happens i immediately enjoy capturing it. so these were my two interpretations of two pieces of his work. i don’t think they compare to his master pieces, but i was pleased with the result none-the-less. thank you for the inspiration, harry!

see yall later!

because i am leaving for maine! woo hoo!!!!!!!!
it is apparently cold (in the 50s) and really rainy so.. i am nervous about how many pictures i’ll be able to take. hopefully the weather surprises us and is a gentleman ;D (or gentlewoman)

photography class is over

i had to take a self portrait for my final assignment, and this idea for the set up just kind of came to me at the last second. i had an entirely different idea for what i was going to take and it just was not working how i had imagined. i have this awesome lamp from ikea, and just looked at it and got this idea. this was a hundred times more interesting than what i was originally thinking for my final project self portrait.
