Mari (pronounced Mary, spelled with an i) is a people oriented commercial photographer and director of photography with big heart. While she calls Nashville, Tennessee home, she has told stories for an impressive client list all over the world. With an active passport, 75% of her work is an out of state commission. Her 11 year commercial career has spanned a huge variety of corporate clients and advertising agencies.

Mari has traveled solo & with production crews throughout the world in some of the globe's most remote locations. Her commercial work for lifestyle brands telling genuine stories with heart supports documentary work with folks who deserve great photojournalistic storytelling.

She believes every person is worthy of being seen.

With a B.A. in Photography, Mari has studied light both real and created, the fine art of working with people, storytelling in multiple mediums and also the psychological effect of images on the human mind.

Crunchy granola things bring her joy, including growing her own vegetables, eating beef liver and ingesting mushrooms. She's really fond of swinging steel maces around in her back yard to the consternation of her neighbors.
She has been known to run into d/Deaf folks on set, which brings her joy because she is fluent in American Sign Language.

While most new TV shows aren't her thing, she's seen every MASH episode ever created.

Se's extremely passionate about social change, and believes in the scientific and emotional power of still images to break down walls and to build br
Her master's degree in theology informs her ethos, and a portion of all campaign work goes towards funding storytelling projects with deserving non-profits and NGOs. If you're interested in this, please email her mari@mari-amor.com

Her photography and motion work is really the tip of the Icelandic iceberg, and she has been described as "one of the most unusual people you will ever meet." More up her alley, she is often described as having "really great energy" and "extremely kind" words of which she hopes to be worthy.
