Tc Morgan is an award winning professional photographer. He is professional & respectful in working with models, clients, & life in general. He has been involved with photography in one way or another for his whole life. Coming from a photographic family it was normal to take lots of pictures. His classic photographic schooling started back in the film & darkroom days. First attending Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA in high school. And a few years later Tc was awarded a California arts scholarship to CalArts | California Institute of the Arts. Tc later went on to attend Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, CA.
 
From a young age Tc got involved with programming & web development. Started his first company at the age of 16. And was quickly swept up in the whole dot com boom. Working with companies like Cisco Systems on multi-million dollar websites. But all along his creative passion for digital art & photography remained. And he would work on his creative projects whenever he had time.
 
After the dot com bubble, Tc went on to create his own clothing labels. Selling branded t-shirts, hoodies, & caps worldwide. Even having his own branded toy h3t hummer trucks sold in walmart & other big box stores.
 
But all along Tc's passion for photography only grew stronger. Shooting models for his clothing brands was quickly becoming not enough as he grew out of sitting in front of a computer all day programming websites & doing graphic design. Photography has always been his true passion waiting to fully manifest into his being. That brings us to the present where Tc has been refining his craft. Spending all day everyday studying all the newest advancements & technics of photography in the year 2012. Using all his experience & schooling of the past to move his work to the next level.
