Jamie Morgan is a photographer and founder-member of the 80s London-based creative collective known as Buffalo. He began his photographic career assisting fashion photographer Terence Donovan before forming Buffalo along with Ray Petri and Mark Lebon. Their groundbreaking work, which mixed elements of street style with high fashion was highly influential in terms of defining new professional as well as aesthetic structures in image-making. As well as shooting seven covers for The Face and advertising for Levi's, Morgan helped create album covers for Culture Club, Soul II Soul, Sade and Neneh Cherry. From the late 80s to the early 90s, Morgan worked independently within the music industry. As well as writing Neneh Cherry's 'Buffalo Stance' -a tribute to the collective-, he released his own album 'Shotgun' whilst signed to Tommy Mottola at Sony. Jamie launched his video-directing career with 'Swallowed', the band Bush's hit. Morgan is currently working as a director and continues to work within the music and fashion industries. His work was showcased in a hardback book and an exhibition at London's Victoria and Albert Museum in 2000.
