Morgan Ione - Chicago Photographer and Director
Captivated by shadows and slices of light. Drawn to vibrant colors and moments of calm. Curious for context, connection, and humanity. A seeker of balance and the organic beauty that is found in imperfection. Always aiming to create images that provide a unique experience and engage your senses. Believer in quality over quantity.
Combining my own attributes and technical skills, I help brands tell their distinct narrative, establish their visual identity, and create memorable content for all usage and platforms.
My clients span commercial, editorial, restaurant, boutique hospitality, travel, luxury residential, publishing, B2B, B2C, D2C, and startup brands.
A storyteller at heart, I sometimes also contribute the written word to editorial stories that I shoot. I earned my degree in Journalism from Boston University, and Editorial and Advertising Honors from The New England School Of Photography. I feel fortunate to have created a way to combine all the things I love into an exciting and fulfilling career.
Different projects call for different levels of production - I have an extended network of producers, video crews, food stylists, prop stylists, studios, creative directors, and graphic designers that help to make every shoot a perfect success.
While currently growing roots in Chicago, I also have a strong client base in New York City where I spent the first ten years of my career and established myself in the creative community.
