Ella Forrest was born the first day of spring in 1989 in New Jersey. She received her first camera at the age of five during Christmas morning. Little did she know that the Fisher Price camera would later influence her love of photography and how she observes her surroundings. Throughout her life she would often find these forgotten and miscellaneous items, then save them as though they were precious. This routine still exists in her life today, but now she also photographs those obscure objects. This love for photography landed her an entire spread in the St. Augustine Record newspaper her senior year of high school. However, it wasnt until college that Ella developed her technical skills and enhanced her artistic abilities. Ella went to school and continued on to receive her Bachelors in Science in Photography from University of Central Florida in 2011. Inspirational moments can come from mundane life experiences such as staring at the clouds and finding new objects from various local thrift stores. Currently Ella lives in the Tampa Bay area and enjoys photographing anything from candid moments to commercial products.
