Hi! My name is Michael Ellison, and I'm honored that you've taken the time to check out my work. 

By trade, I'm a director of photography in the NYC film production industry. I had a mentor early on in my career who taught me the value of a photograph in cinema, and that to be a true filmmaker, one must first and foremost be an accomplished photographer. Film is, after all, 24 photographs every second! That's why, in my free time, I love documenting the lives of friends, family, clients, and events. 

I'm a lifelong student of the craft and I'm open to all work opportunities. Please feel free to reach out with any project, no matter the scale, even if it doesn't align with what you currently see in my portfolio. 

Cheers,
Michael Ellison
