We had the good fortune of connecting with Haldane Morris and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Haldane, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
I was desperate and broke with no money to pay rent, bills etc.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I had a background in fashion as I was a model that did runway shows across Europe and shots with legendary photographers such as Michel Haddi, Bruce Weber and Mario Testino. I don’t think anything sets me apart for others other than I know how to suffer and work long hours trying to achieve my goals. Im most proud of the relationships along the way Ive made with other models, photographers, stylists, mua etc etc I got to where I am by hustling non stop and working harder than what was comfortable. Lessons….. keep shooting everyday, no pay, pay etc.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Take them to my vacation home in Rancho Mirage and show them all the wonderful locations, hikes and beauty out in the desert. Then take them to El Patron and Gelato Granucci in Palm Springs.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
