Photography by Morgan Kelly for Pottery Barn Australia

My name is Morgan Kelly and I am an interior photographer and stylist. I have always had a passion for interiors as I grew up with avid renovators as parents. I just love seeing what can be achieved in the spaces you already have in a home. My passion is shooting homes that have a story behind them from 100 year old Queenslanders to homes that have moved interstate and started their story all over again. 

Morgan ‘s creativity is inspired by travelling the world and appreciating different cultures

Besides growing up renovating all of our family homes, I was fortunate enough to work for an Australian owned homewares company for almost a decade where I photographed and styled their products in a studio. As much as I enjoyed that role, the urge to get out and meet people, hear their stories and share their passion for their homes and their renovations was too great and I started this wild ride that is Casa Morgan.

Although it seems fairly straight forward, Casa Morgan not only refers to me shooting home interiors (casa is Spanish for house) but I wanted a company name that also “housed” all my other talents. I can photograph, style, design, paint, sketch, build and design studio sets and have an insane talent (well, that’s how others describe it) for photoshopping. So in the end Casa Morgan was perfect as it was more like the house of Morgan’s talents.

I have been fortunate to meet some incredible people along this journey. From the beautiful homeowners themselves, people who enjoy my instagram account and also the editors of the magazines I have been lucky enough to have my photography featured in. I have also met some of my ultimate idols such as Steve Cordony, Neale Whittaker and also Tanya Buchanan! Someone else who I consider an idol is Shelley Craft and when I worked for the homewares company I also had the absolute privilege of photographing and working alongside her! (And yes, I can confirm, she is one of the nicest humans on the planet!)

I wouldn’t say I have a “style” as such, but I certainly look at myself as an extended member of the family when shooting. I love to capture the home as if I too lived there. I love to capture the true essence and vibe of the rooms where people have poured their hearts and souls into creating them. I think I would describe it as warm, for warmth is what makes a house a home.

When I am not shooting homes I am usually found to be editing imagery for wall art. I love to fill our home with memories of our overseas trips. I am also a keen renovator myself, although my fiancĂ© and I are not yet ready to undertake our renovation/building project – we have painted our fences, tidied gardens, hung our favourite wall art and started to curate what we would like to achieve in our forever home.
