About Rex Ellacott

“A Digital Nomad, I’m one of those brought up in the seventies and eighties, and learned his craft through the school of life, as well as a few select courses along the way. Three decades later, I’m not slowing down one iota. Life is too short, too precious, too exciting not to seize on all the opportunities that are opening up. Digital film making and photography has opened the world up immensely.

Regardless of technology, and also because of it, the challenge is more in thinking outside the box, thinking on ones feet and taking advantage of the magnitude of technological leaps that are around us. Use the tools, and be creative. Being a purist is one thing, conveying the message is another.

Photography is moving from clearly defined imagery through the social apps, and back into more thinkable images. Big data, AI, and social engineering are driving things. In many ways, I love it. In others, I’m afraid to lose sight of it.”

Acclaimed Internationally as Director/Producer/Photographer of TVC’s, drama, and documentaries, he has made over hundreds of TVCs, campaigns, contributed to over 45 broadcast documentaries, 26 sports series, and substantial commercial shoots. From working with all major brands in multiple countries including Toyota, Ford, Alfa Romeo, and Hyundai, to working with Airlines and Tourist organisations Internationally. From womens fashion to global cosmetics to FMCG internationally. Photographically his work can be seen on Shutterstock, Stock, Adobe, and Gettys image libaries.

Now operational part time as projects dictate, all the major brands that he’s worked with over the years are all changing and being redefined under this new Covid19 post period. In his own words ” if we don’t adapt and move forward, we go backwards. Stay on the crest of the wave, and be refreshed”. Read his LinkedIn profile if you are interested in the details. He doesn’t claim to be any expert by a long shot, but the budgets he has worked with on TVCs and campaigns have ranged from a few million to a few thousand. Photographically that’s no different, so now he is specialising in only the things that he wants to do, and these can be a few hundred bucks, to a few thousand, that’s the challenge of the work he’s interested in. Working with people…

He now shoots in digital formats, with a range of cameras from Mirrorless to DSLRs, and Medium Format, but one thing he does prefer, “less is more”. One thing for sure, he enjoys working with a collective group of passionate people, and making images that stand out, no matter how old they are. After 3 decades of film making all over the world, creating commercials for all leading brands, what he realises that he enjoys the most is the captured image. Your imagination is then encouraged to see the story, especially if its a well constructed frame. Environmental portraits, lifestyle, glamour, landscape and photojournalism interest him.
