Underwater Fashion Photographer Mallory Morrison

This is an interesting Behind the Scenes produced by [FRAMED]. Learning studio strobes and studio techniques are a challenging and fun process….now imagine adding water. Holding your breath, not being able to communicate to your model, etc. Mallory Morrison started as a dancer and took those artistic skills as a trained photographer and dancer to the water. Today, Mallory takes us underwater to shoot a fashion spread for Live Orange County Magazine.
