RACV RoyalAuto - Art Director - Lisa Luscombe

The feature on Lake Elizabeth, published in the February 2017 edition of RA, required Pam to undertake a considerable amount of research and pre-planning, as not only did she have to liaise with business owners and source local talent, but timing and weather also had to be considered if she was to fulfill the deliver on her brief, which she did brilliantly.
I was very impressed with the photos Pam delivered and her approach to this brief. In addition to that she was a delight to work with and I would have no hesitation in commissioning her for additional shoots for RA in the future or recommending her for future work.


The Age - Picture Editor - Leigh Henningham 

Pam Morris completed a 4 week photographic internship at the Age.During that period she worked alongside Age Photographers learning their techniques as well working solo on assignments. Pam learnt quickly and successfully completed assignments that were given to her. She was always professional and courteous while eager to learn. I have no hesitation in recommending her to work as a photographer for any organisation.

The Weekly Review - Picture Producer - Kylie Thomson

Pam has a great eye for design and is confident in her lighting abilities. Pam was able to work independently and alongside other members of the team with a positive attitude. She showed a keen interest in learning new techniques and was thorough in the way she completed a job from start to finish. Pam was a great addition to the company and would highly recommend her for employment.

The Weekly Review - Head Photographer - Michael Rayner

I found Pam to be a very accomplished and competent photographer as well as a very committed assistant when the two of us were out on assignment. She has an exceptional eye to detail and form and is willing to become involved in the photographic process, prepared to act on impulse rather than waiting to be told. I thoroughly recommend Pam and wish her all the success for her forthcoming professional
photographic career.

 CEO Ardent Architects - Canterbury Victoria 

Pam Morris from Spectral Modes has photographed a number of our key projects,  including a domestic residential project that received 2 BDAV awards in 2016 based on her photographic images  ( Pam's attention to detail and understanding of building form result in her photographs being both engaging and informative, giving potential clients a real understanding of our work. Pam's technical proficiency and thorough planning for shoots ensures that we get an outstanding result every time we work with her. Her professional manner and commitment to deadlines make working with her a pleasure and I'm sure we'll be working together on many future projects.

CEO Experient Management Consultants - Steven Melville

I have worked closely with Pam Morris for almost 18 years in her capacity first as CEO of an advanced global software metrics business, through to her second career as a leading Australian photographer. Pam’s keen intellect, insight and attention to detail shines through everything she does. She has an unparalleled  ability to rapidly understand and assess a brief, and then identify and plan the correct strategy to produce precise results. Her blend of art and science produces unique visual results that stretch the limits of what’s possible. I have every confidence in Pam’s ability to meet any client requirement with professionalism, energy and imagination. She is truly the Heston Blumenthal of the visual world!

CEO International Software Benchmarking Standards Group - John Olgivie

I have worked with Pam Morris for almost 20 years, engaging her on many occasions as an IT Consultant for IBM Australia and more recently, as a professional photographer to produce photographic evidence to support an objection to a building permit application. In both capacities, I have found her to be highly professional and ethical. She has always delivered what was required, on time, at the price quoted and to a high quality. As a photographer, she was especially creative in suggesting the most appropriate views to support my requirements.  I would thoroughly recommend her to any client requiring professional photographer services
