Bobby Ellis is the founder and owner of The Image Company. He has 20 years experience in broadcast production and 11 years experience in marketing.
After graduating in Advertising and Journalism from the University of Georgia in 1991, he worked for several years as Production Manager at WFXL-TV in Albany, Georgia. Managing a crew of 12 employees, he was responsible for production of live TV broadcasts, promotions, commercial production, and personnel for on-air switching and satellite feeds. In 1995 he moved to the NBC affiliate in Albany, WALB-TV, and with a crew of 17 he produced live events, live shows, and managed creative services including TV commercials and promotional videos. During the years between his TV production work and venturing into business for himself, Bobby worked for an independent marketing firm overseeing all video and print production.
At The Image Company, Bobby does some of everything; scripting, shooting, editing and web design as well as media planning and buying. His favorite time of year is the spring when he feels like a kid in a candy store at the NAB, checking out all the new technology.
Outside of work, creativity is still the key, whether he is working in his wood shop or is out taking photographs. A favorite subject in front of the camera lens is his daughter, Micah, who shares her father’s gift of innate creativity. White-water rafting, hiking and a gym membership keep him fit, and for entertainment he gravitates toward Sci Fi.
