We're pleased to introduce the newest Lensbaby guru, Ella Manor. Based in New York City, Ella is a highly creative and accomplished fashion photographer, filmmaker and artist. Manor works on both editorial and commercial assignments, as well as fine art projects which often conclude in gallery exhibitions, books and many artistic collaborations with other talents in the industry. In addition to being the recipient of  the Prix de la Photgraphie, the black and white spider award and the color award, Manor has been published in many photography, fashion and art publications.

Ella used Lensbaby lenses to make her recent short fashion film, Power House. She coaxed dynamic effects from Fisheye, Double Glass and Plastic Optics, and is particularly enthusiastic about the visual drama she can achieve by aiming the Soft Focus Optic with multi-hole and creative apertures at glittering jewelry, a technique she pioneered in previous work.
Ella worked with fashion house a la Disposition and stylist Kaytie Haugh to create the uncanny dream world that her models inhabit. In The Making of Power House, Ella offers us a window into her imagination, motivation and technique. Says Ella, "Working on Power House was an extraordinary experience; exciting concept, wonderfully talented team, and Lensbaby lenses which allow me to turn photographic reality into a dream."
