Ellen Nelson has been a professional photographer most of her life. When she was a teen, she earned money by photographing the neighborhood children, printing the images in her basement darkroom and then selling them to the parents.
She has worked as a university photographer, photojournalist, portrait photographer and freelance photographer, shooting for TIME, Ms., and numerous Colorado magazines and newspapers. Ellen's photos have been used in advertisements worldwide and in numerous books and publications. Her Florida Scrub-Jay photo was recently selected as a 2017 Audubon Photography Awards: Top 100.
When asked what her favorite subject is to photograph, Ellen answers, “Anything that moves!” She is currently exhibiting in four galleries in Colorado and will be conducting two "Cowboys, Horses and Wildlife" workshops in Montana in 2018.
