Meet Morgan Elizabeth

Today we’d like to introduce you to Morgan Elizabeth.

Hi Morgan, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today.
I feel like I’ve always been involved with music ever since I was a very young child, but photography picked up for me when I was in middle school. I’ve been doing both my whole life, I think it just took the pandemic happening for me to realize that I needed to try and focus on what really made me happy. I lived in Arizona at the time, and that’s what made me relocate the Denver, and honestly, I couldn’t be happier I made that choice.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
The road has absolutely not been smooth. Honestly, for both a musician and for being a photographer, it’s not a very female-friendly environment. You have to constantly be working three times harder than your peers for the same level of recognition. That’s not to say that there haven’t been just a ton of people who have done nothing but support me and help along the way as well.

I honestly couldn’t ask for a more supportive scene than the one that’s here in Denver. Honestly, the hardest part of all of it has just been doubting myself. That’s what’s gotten me to stop every time I’ve taken a break, it’s what fights the most against what I’m doing. Just constantly not feeling like you’re doing enough or you’re good enough is a killer.

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
For music, I think it’s honestly just letting everyone’s voices be heard in the band. For photography, I think I just like to get creative with what I do. I like to use weird things when shooting, like, copper pipes, and prisms, I’ve used plastic cups, tape, camera straps, like, honestly just anything and everything to play with while shooting to make the experience fun for me every single time.

I also have only been able to use low-budget, more difficult gear for most of the entire time I’ve been a photographer, including shooting on film cameras, so up until now I’ve really had to get to know all of the ins and outs of everything that I was doing and kind of rely on myself instead of my gear, and I think that might set me apart from others.

Who else deserves credit for your story?
Oh, absolutely. My entire band has supported every single crazy idea I’ve had for us, they’ve stuck by me for anything I’ve wanted to pursue outside of music as well. There’s another photographer, Chris, who helped me get my feet wet with photographing concerts and doing so much to help build me up for success with it.

My best friend, Julian, has been by my side and supported me for the past decade through every state move, every crazy idea, every everything. And then lastly, my partner, Brandon, has done nothing but support me in every single way through everything that I have done, and help build my confidence. Honestly, all of these people helped make me who I am and I absolutely wouldn’t even be here without them.
