MULL pho­tog­ra­pher Han­nah Mor­ris has been spear­head­ing ‘Trash the Dress’ photo shoots for the last decade, mostly with wed­ding dresses.

Lately, though, a new trend has emerged for do­ing sim­i­lar shoots with girls in prom dresses.

‘The dresses are of­ten un­harmed, it de­pends on the kind of shoot you want to do,’ Ms Mor­ris said, adding: ‘I work with the client to come up with a sto­ry­line that suits their per­son­al­ity.’

One such shoot was based on Marie Antoinette and her fa­mous ex­trav­a­gance.

Speak­ing of the shoot, Ms Mor­ris said: ‘I felt this role suited Shona’s fun and luminous per­son­al­ity. When I asked her if she would like to be pho­tographed in a bath of Cham­pagne her eyes just lit up!’

An­other shoot was based on the story of Lach­lan MacLean of Duart who tried to kill his wife by aban­don­ing her on an is­land, now known as Lady Rock, off Lis­more.

Ms Mor­ris said of this shoot: ‘I thought this story was great for Mull lo­cal, Jenny.’

Ms Mor­ris and her part­ner AJ Green­way of­ten work to­gether and re­cently filmed a promo video to show what it is like to work on lo­ca­tion on a shoot, which can be viewed on the Han­nah Mor­ris Pho­tog­ra­phy Face­book page.

Shona re­flected Marie Antoinette’s ex­trav­a­gance with a bath of Cham­pagne, while Jenny em­u­lated the Lady Rock leg­end.
