Fine Art Projects:
As a natural progression from fashion photography, Marnie’s fine art projects are elaborate and cinematic. She takes reference from a renaissance palette yet her images remain truly contemporary.
Marnie’s imagery appears warm and film-like, conquering the marriage of subject and set. Her success lies in her ability to explore the emotional power of the subject within a staged environment.
In 2013, RMIT established ‘The Marnie Haddad Mentor Award’ where a graduate is selected to encourage a dialogue of technique and concepts and to work on sets with clients bridging the gap between student and becoming a professional photographer.
