Morgan Heim develops visual media projects designed to break researchers out of lab coat stereotypes, explore wild places and raise the social standing of the planet’s more controversial, misunderstood, or underappreciated critters. With a background in zoology and environmental journalism, she employs photographic techniques ranging from aerials to camera traps and photojournalism in her quest to share stories that matter. Morgan is an Associate Fellow with the International League of Conservation Photographers, (iLCP), and her work has appeared in such outlets as Smithsonian, National Parks, National Geographic NewsWatch, National Wildlife, Treehugger.com, Outdoor Photographer and High Country News. She collaborates with environmental non-profits, government agencies and research institutes on special film projects, transforming science education into personal story experiences. When she’s not working on assignment you can most likely find her embracing her inner geek, reading zombie novels and playing video games.
