Getty Images, a world leader in visual communications, today announced it has formulated a new relationship with esteemed photographer James D. Morgan as a Creative Director & Photographic Consultant to Getty Images across Australia, New Zealand and the wider Asia Pacific region.

During Morgan’s time as a photographer he has captured some of the biggest events and biggest names of the century and within his new role as Creative Director & Photographic Consultant to Getty Images. Morgan will oversee and manage creative endeavors, primarily across the Asia Pacific region but also in other markets where required, whilst simultaneously acting as a photographic consultant in the business.

Morgan began his career at the early age of 13, taking photos of famous people at London’s Heathrow Airport; he got his start in London’s Fleet Street working for the London Times and Sunday Times newspapers whilst just 16 years old. Within 18 months, James was voted the UK Newspaper’s “Young Photographer of the Year” with a winning image from the “Free Nelson Mandela Concert” at Wembley Stadium in London. In 1998, James left newspapers and became the Chief Photographer to the Walt Disney Company based in Paris. Soon after, Morgan accepted the role of Head of Press and PR for Disneyland Paris for the UK and Ireland.

With a strong background in photography, journalism and public relations, Morgan established the James Morgan Photographic Consultancy (JMPC) in 1999 in London and shortly afterwards in 2001, opened an office in Sydney, Australia. JMPC has since gone on to become one of Australia’s most respected photographic companies.

“There’s no higher bar for excellency in the photographic business than Getty Images, so I’m thrilled to continue my relationship with the company,” said Creative Director & Photographic Consultant James D. Morgan. “I’m eager to get to work in this new consultancy role and to continue to assist global and local brands across Australia and the Asia Pacific Region and to expand their knowledge of everything Getty Images has to offer and how they can enhance their own businesses.”

“James Morgan’s experience speaks for itself and we are thrilled to renew and expand our relationship with him,” said Getty Images Vice President of Global Entertainment Kirstin Benson. “As Getty Images continues to grow and evolve, James’s impressive resume of experience as a Creative Director and Photographic Consultant will be invaluable for us, and our clients, moving forward.”
