ABOUT

I graduated from Savannah College of Art and Design with a BFA majoring in photography and moved to New York City to pursue a career in this field.

My photographs have been featured in Newsweek, The New York Times and various other publications.

 

In addition to photography, I also ran my own custom black and white print lab, collaborating with artists and photographers to create both commercial projects and works of art.

 

By 2007, I began to realize my greatest artistic reward in retouching. I provided technical and artistic support to Eugene Richards, photojournalist for “13 Books,” and an exhibition of mural prints created for National Geographic’s Festival of the Photograph. I collaborated with the photographer Richard P. Goodbody for the art book, Stories in Sterling: Four Centuries of Silver in New York (New-York Historical Society, 2011).

 

My retouching has been featured in dozens of art books and gallery catalogs, including Delight in Design: Indian Silver for the Raj (Mapin, 2008); Adornment in Clay: Ceramic Netsuke from the Richard R. Silverman Collection (Toledo Museum of Art, 2010); Les Enluminures’ Diamonds: The Collection of Benjamin Zucker (2019) and Rings Around the World (2016).

CLIENTS

I have worked with John Morgan for many years and cannot imagine collaborating with anyone else. His ever-evolving technical prowess is matched only by his kindness, patience, and creativity. He is not just a master of the science, but also the art of retouching. It is a rare and wonderful combination.

- Richard P. Goodbody, Photographer

Quotation mark

All the boxes are checked: talent, expertise, temperament, patience, kindness, and a keen desire to accommodate. John is a joy with whom to work; he is wired to do this kind of thing.

- Darryl Pitt, owner, Depth of Field Management and curator of The Macovich Collection

Quotation mark

When I send an image to John, I know that it will come back not just clean and balanced, but also enhanced in subtle ways that I never would have been able to think of myself, much less achieve.

- Richard P. Goodbody, Photographer

WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE TO WORK TOGETHER

You have a vision in mind.  I work with you to bring it to light. 

The first step?  I start with listening and being transparent, so I deliver an end-product that far exceeds your expectations and makes your vision a reality. I apply my in-depth, extensive background based on the project requirements by using a combination of artistry, technical expertise, and the latest digital imaging tools. I also firmly believe that I bring vital components like consistency, reliability, and communication to the forefront to ensure a positive and successful outcome.

 

Developing and creating visual identities for a full array of projects and being surrounded by so much talent is why I continue to be excited about what awaits on the horizon. 

 

My hope is our creative paths will converge someday.

“There are a lot of talented photographers, artists, and art directors out there.  I just take the time to listen and make their good images great.”
