When she’s not flying off to LA to snap a wedding, photographer and Girl of the Week ELLEN HO is shooting fashion, lifestyle and event spreads about town. Previously dabbling in handbag and fashion design, Ellen traded up to the camera and has been capturing moments under Hong Photography Studio for over seven years. Clear the memory card ladies, here’s Ellen.
I’m rocking… Mackage jacket, Aritzia tank top, Habitual jeans, Gucci flats, Mini Cooper purse, Miyo Kanayama bracelet, Raymond Weil watch, Aboriginal design necklace, and earrings from a boutique in Victoria.
Feel my best in… Tank top and jeans with flats.
In your makeup bag… Eyeliner, mascara, and lip balm.
Currently craving… My boyfriend’s grandmother’s roast pork and homemade gravy! It’s to die for!
What do you like about photography… Having the ability to express myself through it and be creative.
Who would you love to shoot… Penelope Cruz. The most beautiful, talented and unique person I’ve ever seen.
Risk taker or play-it-safe girl in terms of fashion… I’m in between. I like something classy and comfortable. But I always like to add something different to break the rule.
Best find ever… My beloved Boston Terrier “Bossy.” I got her from a young couple that couldn’t take care of her. She has the funniest personality – which all owners say about their dogs.
Fashion commandments… Always wear things you are comfortable and feel confident in. Don’t be afraid to express yourself through clothes.
Have the urge to splurge on… Camera equipment, Gucci jewellery, handbags and shoes.
Dresses or jeans… Jeans for me, so I can move better.
If I ever wore [blank] you’d know I’d lost it… A hair scrunchy.
Funniest photography moment… When I found out that the groom was my crush in University!
West 4th, Robson, or Commercial Drive… West 4th. I like the boutique stores there, and the restaurants are awesome. Plus it’s close to Kits Beach. I can just grab a coffee and go for a walk.
