Creel Studio


We are storytellers.

We are a creative agency and a production company.

Our mission is to develop and create visual and compelling stories for maximum engagement, and execute it in-house.

Creel Studio is a full service photography and video production company that specializes in food, travel and lifestyle content. We have been at the forefront of creating and expanding a wide range of visual content for the emerging media landscape since 2005.

Leanna Creel started acting for TV when she was 15, moving on from acting after earning an MFA in Film and TV from UCLA’s Independent Producer's Program. She went on to produce 10 independent feature films, and in 2000 Lionsgate acquired the company she co-founded.

Travelling around the world led her back to her childhood passion for photography, and she started Creel Photo in 2004. After creating hundreds of web and educational videos, she expanded her company to Creel Films in 2007. To encompass the expanding array of projects beyond just photography and video, and to develop original IP, Creel Studio was formed in 2013.


Over the last 10 years, Creel Studio has developed original on-air and web content for multiple platforms. We work with premium wineries, resorts, restaurants and real estate companies. Our work includes a wide-range of projects from educational videos for a Singaporean business school, to shooting stills and behind the scenes video for Food Network. Currently we focus on creating rich visual experiences for luxury brands.

Leanna Creel wrote and directed several award winning short films including Offside and Prom-troversy! starring Jane Lynch. Prior to that, she co-founded Ignite Entertainment which financed and produced 10 feature films. They worked with talent such as Will Ferrell, Casey Affleck, Kate Hudson, Natasha Lyonne, Michelle Williams, Peter Facinelli and Ben Stiller.

On a personal note, we enjoy working with children and cancer related causes such as Phase One Foundation, Tower Cancer Research Foundation and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.
