Who is Slevin Mors?
Photographer & Artist
I am a professional photographer and artist known for my tactful juxtaposition of dark and light who inspires my viewers to dive deep within themselves and embrace every facet they discover—even the macabre. Candid yet low-key in my approach,, the beautifully haunting artwork I create pays tribute to the literary masters of the past like Edgar Allan Poe, Clive Barker, and The Brothers Grimm. My creative works also revive old world lore and the vibes of Victorian times.
Since I first held a camera in my hands as a child, I’ve had an unwavering affinity for capturing the countless beauties that lay dormant amongst the shadows; the places where my friends and most other people would dare not look. During high school, I would spend a bulk of my days neck-deep in the realm of noir and dark comedic entertainment. Two decades later, my love of photography and all things gloom has only grown, and my sights are set on becoming a full-time fine art and model photographer.
Currently, I reside in the heart of Orange County, California, but my true home lies within the shadows, mists, and stormy night skies.
I have been interested in photography as hobby for over 20 years; ever since I took my first class in high school. Over the years I have tried my hand at a lot of different types. I started with landscape photography before moving into family portraits and weddings. While I had fun shooting weddings and families it ultimately wasn't for me.
I specialize in dark, gothic and horror stylized photography. I use shadows and gelled lights to create a dramatic style of portraiture. I also like to play with contrasting ideas or themes in my photographs.
As far back as I can remember my house has always been filled with art. Growing up I was exposed to many different artists and styles. In high school I attended a specialized program for visual arts. As I got more into photography I moved way from drawing and painting. I still do some artwork and sculptures.
I have started to use these talents in photography related projects as well. I build props and custom accessories for some of my photoshoots. Many of these end up being added to the prop room at Elysium Studio.
I co-own Elysium Studio along with my wife Maria, who is a makeup artist and runs the studio during the day.
Elysium Studio is a production studio located in Garden Grove, CA and has been carefully designed to provide everything a photographer or videographer would need to create a high quality production for their clients.
