Ella Fitzgerald (born 1992) is an Australian Photographer and Fine Artist based on the Gold Coast. With a background in Fine Art, she found her passion for photography in High School where she was introduced to her first darkroom. Ella continued on to study a Bachelor of Photography at QCA Brisbane, graduating in 2014. She then moved to Williamsburg in Brooklyn, New York, before settling back home on the Gold Coast.

Ella’s personal work explores the human condition through imagery of the female form against landscapes, and intimate portraits with use of flora to explore our relationship with nature. Ella is interested in using the female body as a subject to explore her own femininity and experiences of the world around her. Offering a female gaze, Ella’s focus is to empower women through representing them in diverse shapes, sizes, ethnicities and backgrounds. 

In her graduating photography student exhibition at QCA, Ella was awarded the Sun Studios ‘Best Image Award: Graduating student demonstrating technical and conceptual clarity within the politic of the practiced stream.’ She has continued on to exhibit her first solo exhibition ‘In Bloom’ at Hotel Miami, Gold Coast in 2018, and exhibited in a number of group shows from 2013 - 2020. Ella is currently a Resident at Mint Art House in Burleigh Heads, Gold Coast.
