Our special guest this week is Monica Morgan, a world renowned photographer, public speaker, and freelance entrepreneur based in Detroit, Michigan. Monica has a great story to tell about how she changed her own career trajectory from being a writer to becoming a premier photographer who has photographed so many people and so many events here in Detroit and all over the world, including Rosa Parks and Nelson Mandela.
Monica describes how she realized that the photographs that accompanied the journalistic articles she wrote were more effective and more lucrative. She tells the story of how her mentors encouraged her to go to South Africa to cover Nelson Mandela when he was finally released from prison, and how that trip changed her professional life, even though she was just starting her photography business at the time.
Monica explains how her mentor was instrumental in the growth and development of her business, and how now she in turn mentors others on a regular basis.
What goes into photographing famous people and important events, Monica explains, is so much more than just “taking pictures.”
