Charlie Morgan Macro and Closeup Competiton

Charlie Morgan Portrait


This competition is set up in memory of Charlie’s love for Nature, especially Macro Nature Photography: Mushrooms, British Soldiers, Pixie Cups, Wildflowers, etc. He was a member of the St. Louis Camera Club for over 25 years and earned 500 points over that period. He is remembered for his willingness to share his knowledge of nature, by leading numerous field trips to parks and nature sites in the surrounding area; giving programs; and was one of the founders of the Monsanto Camera Club and a member of PSA.

He met Muriel at a Rookie Camp meeting in 1982 at Wade Clutton’s home. Charlie and Muriel were married eight years later for almost 19 years. Muriel Morgan has set up this special competition in Charlie’s name with a $200 award.
