Scott Morgan is a photographer, creative director, director, writer, educator and father of three.
He is an inspiring and compassionate teacher with an infectious enthusiasm for creativity in all of its expressions. Over three decades, Scott has taught workshops and lectured on photography, design, creativity and the relationship of art and commerce.
Scott studied painting, sculpture, photography and literature at the University of California, Santa Barbara on a scholarship for art and writing. He later lived, traveled, studied and worked as an assistant for a number of well-known fashion photographers in Europe.
After returning to California he launched into a successful advertising and commercial photographic career and became one of the foremost photographers in the United States, executing commissions for clients around the world. His highly conceptual and original imagery helped create award-winning campaigns for Nike, Levi’s, IBM, Shiseido, Microsoft, Joop!, Apple, Kodak and Nissan to name a few. He has established a reputation for his ability to translate the complex, often intangible, product traits of his clients into visually arresting and memorable photographic icons and design solutions. In some cases, he also acted as the art and creative director for the projects.
As a natural extension of his still photographs, Scott has directed film projects for many of his advertising clients as well. He has also directed a full length documentary on people from around the world who have been given the gift, and burden, of being able to see the future. Scott has written two feature screenplays as well.
Scott has been the subject of numerous feature print articles in magazines such as Communication Arts, PDN, Photo design and his work has been published in hundreds of magazines and been exhibited around the world. His commercial work has received awards from the AIGA, The Art Directors club of New York and Los Angeles, Graphis, the AR 100, Communication Arts, PDN and Print.
His fine artwork has been shown in galleries and museums throughout the US, Canada and Europe and his work is represented by JHB gallery, New York.
