Podcast 305 : Interview with Graham Morgan

Today I had the pleasure of chatting to a good friend of mine, Graham Morgan, an amazing photographer from Sussex Inlet, Australia, and we recorded the chat to share with you.

I kind of take being able to communicate with Graham for granted, because we’ve been friends for a number of years, and Graham has been on my Japan Winter Wildlife Tours three times now. Then a few days ago, Andrew Masur, a valued member of the MBP Community mailed and asked if it was possible to do an interview, because Graham’s work is so beautiful. Thanks for the suggestion Andy! I hope you enjoy this too.

Listen to the Audio here:

Graham has won a number of major photography competitions…

  • ANZANG Winner – Behaviour Section 2009
  • ANZANG Winner – Expressive Section 2008
  • Better Photography Photographer of the Year (image from Hokkaido) 2009
  • Better Photoshop Photographer of the Year 2010
  • Extreme Environment International Photographer of the Year 2010
  • Winner Behavioural Section of the Art Wolfe ICPA (International Conservation Photography Awards)

Graham’s trip took him through the North East Passage from Murmansk to Anadyr. Along the way they visited Novaya Zemlya, Uyedineniya and Pakhtusova Islands, Severnaya Zemlya, Taimyr Peninsula, Mighty Lena River, Novosibirsk Islands, Indigirka River, Medvezie Islands, Aion Island, Kokyuchin Island/Kolyuchin Bay, Yttygran Island, Yanrakinnot Village/Pintegney Bay/Seniavinskiy Strait,Achen Lagoon/Preobrazheniya Bay and finally to Anadyr. Phew!!

The company that Graham travels a lot with again is Aurora Expeditions, who can be found at auroraexpeditions.com.au, and if you are interested in the tour of mine that Graham has been on three times, you can find details of that on our Workshops page. We still have a few places left for the Feb 2012 tour as well, so take a look if you’re interested.

Here are the 10 images amazing images of Graham’s that we discussed.
