A New York-based, well-traveled and German-born creative, she enjoys journeying from her 360º career in creative direction for luxury brands to scriptwriting and film direction.

After over 20 years crafting campaigns for the beauty, jewellery, fashion, fragrance, and automobile markets all over the world, she finally decided in 2015 to fulfill her love of storytelling by filming her ideas and scripts. She also enrolled in cinematography and screenwriting courses at the London Film Academy.

From commercials to documentaries and fiction, Haecker’s filmography now includes several films for jewellery clients as well as ‘Endless Me,’ a one-of-a-kind ‘beauty meets David Lynch’ fashion short, and ‘Laps of Honor,’ featuring German car-racer and collector Herbert Engel. An achievement for Haecker’s unconditional passion for cars, ‘Laps of Honor’ has received warm accolades from the male-dominated motoring industry with a nomination for best documentary short at the International Motor Film Awards in London in 2022, and the award for best documentary short at the Grand Motoring Festival 2022 in South Carolina (Hilton Head Island).

Driven, experienced and focused, she has a distinctive aesthetic and artistically-trained eye which always brings out beauty and emotion in all her creative and film direction projects.

The New York City-based photography team of Ellen McDermott and creative partner Bridget Sciales produces timeless visual language, with imagery that is both intimate and visceral. 

“As women, we feel we are expected to work harder in the male-dominated field of photography. Securing top assignments is often quite challenging. We have been fortunate to work with creative heads who understand the value of diversity.” 

Giving female photographers equal billing to their male counterparts expands creative energies and acknowledges a different approach in providing new and unexplored points of view. Their photography evokes emotion, which enhances the digital experience for consumers across e-commerce, marketing, and content creation. The approach involves shooting with a studied and refined lighting that immediately provokes the viewer into a time and space.

The work can be seen in ad campaigns, digital content, magazines, books, corporate assignments and private collections throughout the United States, Europe and Asia.

Clients include Ralph Lauren, Brooks Brothers, Chicos, One Kings Lane, Martha Stewart Living, Iconix Brands, Toast, Plain Goods, Dwell, Cottages & Gardens, Architectural Digest, Elle Décor, Christie's, Sotheby’s and Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt among others.
