Work With Me

Hi, I’m Ella

I’m an avid photographer, filmmaker and writer with a passion for wildlife, conservation and cultures.

For as long as I can remember, I have used my creativity to highlight topics that I believe in as well as to tell captivating, emotive stories.

Over the years I have truly invested in my filmmaking and photography equipment to ensure I can produce the best reflection possible of what I am capturing.

However, I thoroughly believe it is my undeniable passion that sets me apart as a writer, photographer and a filmmaker.

Media Channels

I create content for a variety of platforms.

My key focus is producing video content for my YouTube channel, Ella in Wanderlust.

This is my preferred method of content creation as I believe that video content is an incredibly powerful tool. Long-form videos allow viewers to become immersed and more engaged with the story and creator.

I use my YouTube channel to vlog about my experiences whilst travelling, providing education about a destination whilst adding personality, humour and storytelling to create an engaging video.

I am also open to collaborations via my written blog or Instagram channel.

A holistic approach to collaborations (making use of several media channels) can be very effective in absorbing viewers/followers in the journey.
