Monika Lis is a Polish photographer, currently based in NYC. Starting as a landscape and travel photographer she naturally transitioned to beauty and fashion over time. She became more and more driven by unique beauty and strong, confident women which
she now shows through the lens of her camera.
Having travel as her other passion helps her create exceptional images, often using natural light, and never underestimating the value of scenery.
Through her images, she helps to create a visual representation of a brand and to show products in the best possible way.
She loves working with other creatives who are as passionate about their crafts as she is about photography.
My editorial work was published in magazines like Harper's Bazaar, L'Officiel, Glamour, Elle, Marie Claire and independent magazines as well.

"Not only Monika's photos are stunning, but she also makes the shoot feel effortless. Great professional, kind person, efficient and talented."
"I have worked with Monika several times on different photo shoots and she is one of my favorite photographers to shoot with. She is down to earth and has such an eye for art. She has even done my personal head shots and I could not be happier with them (and that’s saying something because I never like photos of myself!) Monika is an artist that you absolutely want to work with!"
"Monika was very professional while also being flexible with some scheduling problems we ran into the day of our shoot. She was very positive and an excellent coach for me as I modeled. The product we ended up with is incredible! I can’t recommend her enough and I will be a returning client."
"Monika is such a wonderful photographer to work with! I have worked with her on numerous occasions both behind and in front of the camera. Her work is gorgeous, timeless, and showcases people and garments beautifully."
"I worked with Monika a couple of times and she was always super professional, and nice to everyone on the set. Truly one of my favorite photographers in New York!"
"Monika is an absolutely amazing photographer. Very professional and always serious about her work. She is very passionate and has a lot of creative ideas for photoshoot mood boards. I had a chance to work with her several times and I was always extremely satisfied with our results! I would recommend her to all models who are looking for good quality, creative test shoots. She’s punctual, very ambitious, and a true perfectionist (her editing skills are very impressive). Not only a great photographer but also a good friend!"
"Monika is a delight to work with both coming from a model and stylist perspective. She's always so organized and come up with creative solutions on the spot so easily!"
"I work as a retoucher and I would like to say that working with Monika's photos is always an incredible pleasure! The photos are very lively, harmonious and aesthetic. I look at the photo and see how accurately Monika showed not only the appearance but also the character and mood of the model. Her photos reflect the beauty and uniqueness of each person and it's really nice to work with these photos absolutely every time❤️"
"First and foremost, Monika was very respectful about the COVID boundaries. The minute she got to our location, everything just felt super easy. She let us be ourselves but also helped us when we were struggling with the vision that we had for our creative shoot. She is also so funny and down to earth!"
