MMichelle Morelos first gained recognition in online photography communities in 2004, way before the dawn of camera phones and social media, for the eye-catching and vivid photos that she showcased in her old site back then. Her images were a testament that one did not need an expensive DSLR camera to produce outstanding images as she did capturing photos that ranged from street rallies and colorful festivals, to high-end resorts and hotels which appeared in magazines using just a simple point and shoot camera. In 2005, Michelle was featured in a full-page cover spread for a special supplement on photography published in The Manila Bulletin, one of the Philippines’ major premier broadsheets. By 2006, Michelle became one of the pioneer photographers for a photo studio that specialized in baby and family photography, a genre she continues to hold dear in her heart.
Michelle is a Communications graduate from St. Paul College and holds a Master’s Degree in Environmental Management from the Ateneo de Manila University and the University of San Francisco, USA. A passionate environmentalist, most of her photos are, in fact, influenced by her love for nature. Aside from mentoring basic photography classes and various travel photography workshops on her own, Michelle was also a college instructor for environmental and photography subjects at the De La Salle College of St. Benilde – School of Design and Arts in Manila from 2007-2013.
In 2013, Michelle moved to Vancouver, Canada where she continues to enjoy her photography immensely. She is excited to be reunited with her toy poodle, Blingbling, who she hopes will join her in Canada very soon.
Michelle is a proud member of the Professional Photographers of America.
