Mike Morgan

Commercial, advertising and editorial photographer based in Washington DC, Maryland, and Virginia.


My passion is creating memorable portraits and images that embody the heroism, vulnerability or humor of my subjects: evoking the sense of pride that comes from hard work, the courage of choosing to be an individual, the beauty of a well-crafted product.

I grew up on California's Central Coast and came east for college, but deeply identify with my roots: I've always felt the landscapes and solitude of places like Big Sur run through my work and have indelibly informed the way I look at the world, within the camera and without.

I very much love what I do and though I'm based in the Washington DC area, I will travel anywhere on the planet for an interesting and challenging campaign. My clients will get images that bring a fresh and creative look to their publication, pictures with an edge.

My wife Theresa and I live on Kent Island in the Chesapeake Bay with our daughter Julia. When we're not at work we can be found hiking with a stack of good books.
