Referring to Ellen Boughn as a “microstock celebrity” is like referring to Rupert Murdoch as a newspaper owner. She’s a celebrity of the entire stock photography market, not just microstock. Her career in content development and business strategy in the industry spans over 30 years. She’s now Director of Content and Business Development at Dreamstime as well as maintaining an independent stock photography consulting business.
Strategic and tactical consultant to the Stock Photography industry and writer of the Stock Photography that Sells blog at Dreamstime.
Born in USA | Resides in Washington | B.A in Zoology | UCLA Management Graduate | Member of PACA & CEPIC annual attendee since 1998
Ellen has a resume that reads like a who’s who of stock photography. She has consulted and held executive positions with a long list of agencies and stock collections. Along the way she’s added skills in management, marketing, public relations and business development to her photography and editing experience.
