Morgan started taking photos in high school. He was that guy with multiple cameras around his neck and a light meter tied to his hip. He became sought after to be the cinematographer on friends shoots. Before he realized what happened, he was becoming a full-blown cinematographer. 20+ years later, he amassed credits for theatrical feature films, theatrical documentaries, hundreds of commercials and music videos. His passion for lighting and photography has never faded. It's only gotten stronger with his decision to take on product and beauty photography. Not a moment goes by that he doesn't notice and appreciate the way light falls on the world.
Lighting. I love Lighting. I love how the right lens, with the right lighting, can bring out all the beauty of a product and a person. With keen eyes and a knowledgeable skill set, you can make a product or a person look their best. Better than they normally do. Which is like magic. I still get blown away at the final images. Mesmerized with the beauty and elegance a photo can convey. That is amazing to me and it never ceases to amaze me.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done so many different styles of shoots over the years. And I love them all for expanding my ability to achieve a style, evoke a feeling, and capture my and the audience's attention. The best moments on a shoot is when you feel and see the initial plan grow and expand in ways you never thought of when planning and visualizing the shoot. I am a sensitive artistic person. I have enough experience to trust my artistic sensibilities. I love when creatives all get together and we build upon the initial idea and it becomes more than any of us had imagined. That's the best! And I shoot for those occurrences constantly. Keeping an open mind and allowing the pictures to blossom right before our eyes.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
I've not put my work out there to win awards. I believe the Photos is an award in itself.
A fun fact about this photographer
I spent years in bands and studied hard to be a guitarist. I was set to be a musician. Then I found photography and never looked back.
