James Morgan’s passion for photography started in his early teens. He began working at the London Times and Sunday Times newspapers at the young age of sixteen. Within only 18 months James was voted the UK Newspaper’s “Young Photographer of the Year”. Over the following ten years with the Times newspapers, he captured some of the most important news and cultural events of the decade: Thatcher, Reagan, Gorbachev, the Royal family- Princess Diana amongst the many, the Pan Am 747 Lockerbie bombing, the IRA bombing campaign, the Cannes Film Festival, the opening of ‘Phantom of The Opera’ on Broadway, Milan & New York Fashion Week, to name but a few.
In 1998 James was appointed as Chief Photographer to the Walt Disney Company based in Paris, advising Disney’s management team on image selection across its global portfolio, including the launch of Animal Kingdom in Florida and the launch of Disney Cruise Lines from Venice, Italy. Following this role, James became Head of Press and PR for Disneyland Paris for the UK and Ireland.
Built on his solid background of photographic, journalistic and public relations work he established the James Morgan Photographic Consultancy, operating originally out of London and now also from Sydney, Australia.
