Artful Interior Photography
Will Ellis is a Brooklyn-based architectural photographer specializing in residential and commercial interiors. His clients include architects, interior designers, developers, and brands in the New York area and beyond.
Will's practice is marked by acute attention to detail through every stage of the process, from the framing of a shot to the careful retouching of eyesores and imperfections. His images rely on bright whites and graphic composition for visual impact, using soft, natural light whenever possible. During production, he takes a collaborative approach to image-making, valuing the give and take between photographer and client that is essential to any successful architectural shoot.
The end result is precise, natural imagery, with a narrative focus—pictures that not only capture environments, but the way we live and work within them. To see more of Will's work, click through the featured projects below, or view his full interiors portfolio.
Will Ellis is a native of San Antonio, TX and a graduate of NYU's Tisch School of the Arts. After studying filmmaking, Will found himself increasingly drawn to still image-making, and began pursuing photography in earnest.
His unusual path to interior photography began in an abandoned warehouse in Red Hook. Over three years of photographing and researching New York's modern ruins, Will became a noted chronicler of the city's forgotten places, releasing his first photo book, Abandoned NYC, in 2015. In the process, he discovered a passion for capturing spaces.
Today, Will focusses on his commercial practice, photographing residential and commercial interiors for architects and designers while pursuing personal projects in his spare time. His work has appeared in Architectural Digest, Elle Decor, Interior Design, and the New York Times.
