Photographer - exploring the world and self through the lens. Film-curious.
Morgan Richie is a photographer, filmmaker, and freelance creative. She recently returned to Florida after living in Hawaii and California for over 25 years.
Morgan's photography has been accepted into The Contemporary Photography in Hawaii exhibit four times, and in 2019 she won the Halekulani Corporation Award for her Untitled #096. She has had images accepted five times to Your Daily Photograph and one image accepted to Platform at the Orlando Museum of Art.
In 2020-2021, she produced 11 short films and graduated from the Hawaii Filmmakers Collective Producer's Lab. She has also worked on set, in the production office for several commercials, and as a background actor in a feature film.
She designed book covers and layouts for four novels - The Bend in the Straight and Narrow historical fiction series by Sarah A. Younger and Societal Damage by Shannon Sheets.
But she started as a marine biologist.
Her adventures took her to sea in the first 20 years of her career. She once researched the historical ecology of tropical marine ecosystems, managed a marine mammal monitoring program, presented her work to the Princess of Thailand, and rode a one-eyed horse on a deserted stretch of a rarely visited island.
Now, she brings her creativity and production skills to her position as a Communications Specialist for a non-profit and to her art, where she is interested in seeking resonance in visual imagery.
