Morgan Heim has been sneezed on by a whale, stampeded by bison and almost mistaken for salmon by hungry grizzly bears, all of which she took as great compliments, considering they let her live to spy on wildlife for another day.
With a background in zoology (BS) and environmental journalism (MA), Morgan employs photo and filmmaking techniques ranging from aerials to camera traps and good old-fashioned photojournalism in order to share human stories of the natural world.
She is an Associate Fellow with iLCP, on the board of NANPA and alum of the prestigious Missouri Photo Workshop. Her work has appeared in the Banff Mountain Film Festival, as an official select in the Wild & Scenic Film Festival, and in such outlets as Smithsonian, National Parks, National Geographic NewsWatch, GEOLino Extra, NPR.org, The Nature Conservancy and High Country News.
Morgan currently resides in Boulder, Colorado, with her husband Philipp and their tree-climbing dog, Javier.
