The Collective - The Unfound Door

What do you get when you mix a little bit of spunk, a whole lot of creativity, and a amazing knack for people? You get the talented owner of The Unfound Door, Ely Hemnes and her fierce team of creatives!

CEO & Founder, Ely: I want to live in a world where hot air balloon travel is the only option, calories don’t lead to weight gain and people spontaneously break out into song and dance at least once a day. My name is Ely, pronounced Ellie, and plot twist: I am not a natural redhead.

My WHY for Starting The UNFOUND Door:
We see talent agencies for models and actors, however in Colorado, we do not have that similar support system for creatives in photography, videography, or other small businesses. Let’s be honest: creative personalities are not usually the best at “representing” themselves. Client management and follow through can also be a huge pain point for those creating the art. That is where I come in. My skill set is tailored for business development, relationship building, and client management. The talent I have for translating vision between client and creative is also a huge benefit to both camps. My background in theatrical direction and event coordination has trained me to listen and understand a client’s need and thusly help craft a strategy to help produce the perfect product. The UNFOUND Door will produce the ultimate service experience while providing very attractive rates with the best creatives in the business.  Whether you are looking for a knowledgeable and technical photographer for architectural project sessions or an empathetic artist to capture your families relationship, The UNFOUND Door can make this process easy and rewarding.
