St Louis, MO
Monte “Delan” Ellis, Photographer, Video Producer and owner of Echo Exposure. Born in Baltimore, my father always took pictures. He wasn’t a professional, but I’m still able to look back at the memories that were captured. After graduating in Norfolk, VA, I remember looking through a photo album that I had put together as the years went by. From baby pictures to high school graduation, I loved reflecting on my journey.
Although I enjoy portrait photography, I get just as much joy out of taking pictures at events, various outdoor scenery, and everyday life in the city. I’m based in St. Louis, MO area so there is an abundance of subject matter. My studio has plenty of character as well and it helps during the cold times of the year. I love finding the beauty in all things! I get the biggest rush reviewing an image I just took of a person that didn’t believe they were photogenic and watching them see themselves in a whole new light. Everyone deserves to have their story captured so they can later look back on that moment and smile!!
