My name is Maria Heiss and I am a Russian-born photographer and filmmaker formed in London, currently living in Melbourne, Australia and working worldwide. I offer a unique aesthetic and style through my photography and have an extensive sense of fashion.


  Photography was my passion since childhood, so a decision to study photography deeper in 2012 came naturally. I graduated with BA (Hons) degree in Fashion Photography from the world’s leading specialist creative university - University of the Arts London, (London College of Fashion) in 2016. Living in the UK had a strong visual impact on me and my works, inspired by its culture, fashion, history, artists, I have developed my vision and style seen throughout my photographic works.

  I am experienced in studio and on location photography, covering all aspects of fashion photography, including: Editorial, Beauty, Product, Lookbook as well as Portrait photography. Shooting on both digital and film medium format. With a client list second to none, from luxury fashion brands and emerging designers to modelling agencies, some of my previous career projects also include shooting for London Fashion Week as well as Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia. 



  Inspired by Australian unique wildlife and nature, I pursued capturing landscapes and wildlife, combining my love for nature and animals with my equally intense love of photography.
