HI, I'M MALLORY MORRISON


I started my career as a dance photographer shooting in the studio, using my extensive 24 year ballet background to connect with my subjects and effectively direct them. I eventually found the traditional studio too constrictive for my ideas, so I moved into the water and have been shooting underwater for the past 15 years!  

I have sold prints of my work through in person art shows and online to 250+ collectors all over the world. I also shoot commissioned portraits and license my images for a variety of commercial uses. 

This niche has allowed me to carve out a recognizable style and leave a lasting impression with art buyers, my portraiture clients, and the photographic community.

AMBASSADOR WITH OUTEX

HEAR FROM A PAST STUDENT


"Adding underwater genre to my photography repertoire wan’t as easy as first thought. It was a real minefield of which underwater housing to use, to directing models underwater to editing specifically for underwater.  Completing Mallory Morrison's Underwater online course was absolutely worth every cent, as the course saved me so much heartache, wasted money, effort and time.  All the skills I learnt from Mallory have catapulted my photography to a new level”
