Hello, my name is Morgan Kolenut, I am the founder and photographer of MooShoot Studios. I was born and raised in New Jersey, so I’m a true Jersey girl. Photography is more than just a picture to me it is a feeling. As Don McCullin said, “Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.” When taking photographs my goal is to provoke others to feel.
As a young curious little girl I had always dreamed about becoming a Photographer. My father was a big influence in my love for photography, giving and teaching me how to use his Canon AE-1 SLR. After high school I attend County College of Morris and then the Art Institute of Philadelphia for photography. Although one of my biggest dreams was to take beautiful pictures and make priceless memories, the path I was destined to take did not lead me there right away. For 10 years I worked as a Vet Tech at various different shelters and hospitals. Being able to work with animals and their families during their happiest times and saddest times has helped me gain a better understanding for emotions. Although dedicating my time to help others in need has been an amazing and satisfying life experience, deep inside there has always been the desire to continue on the path I first started on, photography!
