About ME

Hi I’m Ella

I work for myself, writing, photographing and creating all manner of content for communications campaigns. My background is in screen journalism and digital media and TENANT Magazine was born out of a university writing assignment. I was enjoying it, so decided to keep it going,  to document and celebrate these lives and times via my clever friends, their clever friends and the wonderful strangers I keep meeting in between.

Say hello!  tenantmag@gmail.com

Why’d you call the blog TENANT?

In its modern usage tenant is most commonly used to describe a person who is a ‘lease holder or pays rent’.

A historical and less commonly used definition of tenant is: ‘an occupant or inhabitant of any place’. To me, this resonated as a democratic description for all people who live and contribute to Melbourne, no matter their gender, age, class or race – plus I like the way it looks in caps!


All photos and interviews published on this site, and on TENANT’s twitter and Instagram, are mine unless otherwise credited.

Please always credit TENANT Magazine and contact me via the email above to ask for permission before republishing, thank you!
