The Morrisons

Theo + Theresa Morrison are a Portland, Oregon-based photo team specializing in lifestyle, hospitality, and portrait photography. We met as assistants in 2008 and partnered in life and work soon after. With over a decade of collaboration in advertising, editorial, and corporate settings, we love helping brands tell the stories that connect them to their clients.

We’re often asked how we work as a duo. From concept to execution, we love teamwork-with each other, with the creative teams and brands we get to work with, and with dedicated crew members, subjects and talent. We generate our best work through active partnership with our collaborators, and we rely especially on the synergy of our two perspectives and complementary strengths. We toggle back and forth on camera; our ideal rhythm is a dance, trading back and forth between active capture and planning. All shoots balance thoughtful strategy with spur-of-the-moment opportunities, and we help each other find and utilize as many of these special circumstances as possible.

Whether shooting ‘real people’ with Lee Jeans, a hilarious model at BahaMar in the Bahamas for Travel and Leisure, or an entire ad campaign shot on a phone for Google Pixel, people are at the heart of what we do. Our goal is to bring our absolute best for sets that are authentic, energetic, inspiring, and safe -- we know great energy directly impacts our in-person collaborators, and it also translates to the quality of the visual stories we're able to tell.

Over the years we’ve been based in New York, California, and now Portland, Oregon where we are enjoying being closer to family. We love working locally, but we travel far and wide for our clients. If you’d like to connect, please reach out to us or to our delightful agents Lisa and Shauna.
