Ellen Herbert, owner/producer, could not make a grey scale in college, but found her place in photography as an editor, producer, researcher and Art Director, providing support for creative projects, and producing and directing for a wide array of clients.

A career photography professional, Ellen’s expertise in commissioning, producing, editing and licensing imagery has allowed her to work in the world of extreme sports; as the Digital Stills Editor for the 2000 Democratic National Convention; negotiating global rights and building distribution networks for the PictureArts Stock Photography collections FoodPix and Brand X.

Following a stint as researcher/line-producer/geek archivist on the Academy Award-winning documentary The Children’s March, Ellen built the art-buying department from the ground up at independent advertising agency Ignited. As Sr. Director of Creative Content/Photographer Relations at Jupiter Images, Ellen maintained responsibility for content produced on the West Coast for five image collections.

Los Angeles based, NEAT is also positioned to work internationally. We really love what we do and hope to be able to join your next project.
