Hi. I’m Ellen Jackson, and I create bespoke portraiture of horses and humans.
I began in freelance photography over twenty years ago after apprenticing for advertising photographers and studying theater in college. My work has been used by companies for branding, in magazines for story illustrations, and by families for one of a kind heirlooms. I have a narrative mindset about creating images. I love a good story. So I guess it’s fitting that I enjoy every opportunity to discover and interpret
I use all kinds of equipment…..a 4×5 view camera, vintage and new 35 mm film cameras, and digital formats.
I knew I was in love with photography when I first saw a latent image emerge on a piece of enlarging paper in a darkroom. It was altogether magical and satisfying and compelling to me. Much as I appreciate the convenience of digital photography, I still enjoy making silver-gelatin prints from black and white celluloid film. Many times, I finish these images with oil or acrylic paints, colored pencils, graphite, charcoal or pastels. With the artisanal nature of hand-pulled and enhanced prints, I am very concerned with their correct archival framing; and go to great lengths to find the perfect frame for each image.
Please call to discuss assignments. My phone number is 317-590-5071.
