Cheyenne Ellis

PHOTOGRAPHER

Fashion . Youth . Lifestyle

The daughter of a photographer and a stuntman turned film director, Cheyenne honed her craft studying at Brooks Institute of Photography. She worked under legendary photographer Irving Penn in New York, in what she describes as two of the best years of her life, and then moved back home to California to begin her own career. Being raised in a family of stunt people , much like the circus, she learned the family craft at a young age. Her first stunt was at the age of 8, and she helped pay her way through photography school, by being a part of the family business. Now, as a photographer, and a retired stuntwoman, a set is like her second home. Currently working from a home base in Half Moon Bay, California she splits her time between Los Angeles and San Francisco and travels all over the world for projects. She is most at home in nature, growing up half her life in the mountain town Mammoth Lakes and the other half at the beaches in Malibu, her connection with the outdoors is apparent in her imagery. Her casual easy way with people, a natural connection with the beauty in the world and around her, and her high level of professionalism translate to stunning, timeless photographs. Cheyennes images are very much about having a good time, and that’s by design. She transports viewers with her story telling. She understands instinctively how to make things feel easy, inviting and fun. In her book, everyone deserves an all-access pass to happiness.
