Spend 5: Keith E. Morrison


Keith E. Morrison is a name TWAIN have been following for a while. An instagram feed and website full of photos we could get lost in for hours.

Having just spent time at Paris Fashion Week shooting for Barney’s (yes, BARNEY’S!), we think this is a name you’ll all be hearing more of in the photography and street style world. During this career defining moment he shot the likes of Caroline De Maigret (yes the Parisian herself) – see gallery below.

TWAIN spend 5 with this superstar on all things photography, the man himself and his recent break that may just be the beginning…



Name: Keith E. Morrison

Occupation: Professional button pusher (photographer)

Career highlight... Realizing that anything, absolutely ANYTHING, is possible after being put on a plane to cover Paris Fashion Week for the first time with Barneys New York; a brand that I had previously never in my life imagined having the esteemed pleasure of working with

On getting a the perfect shot… Trust yourself. The “perfect shot” doesn’t exist in reality as there will always be a flaw. If you’re 100% content then something is wrong with you but more than anything trust your gut; it won’t lead you astray but not listening to it will often lead you to a place of regret wishing you had a time traveling device thus enabling you to go back and do something different

I shoot with… Anything. It’s not about what you have but how you use it

Must follow… Hannah Sider, Timothy Baga, Daniel Jackson, and countless others

On NYC… Been here for 9 years and somehow have stuck around. I’ve still yet to visit all of the places I had planned to see within my first year but I have a feeling I’ll have plenty of time so just going with the flow and taking every day as it comes

Hidden NYC gem… Deadly Dragon record shop for all your feel-good reggae vibes

Cocktail of choice… None…not a drinker

Cuisine of choice… Pizza…Roberta’s Bee Sting is an absolute must

Current obsession… See above. If that doesn’t work out I’d have to say coffee for the first time in months as I’m currently on assignment in Paris working nonstop. Currently writing these responses during my 21st hour awake today

Must read… Anything by Haruki Murakami. The Wind Up Bird Chronicles is my favorite

Nickname… Keithy

On the wishlist… Pentax 645Z medium format digital camera

Daily uniform… Black Han Kjobenhavn Tee, Patrik Ervell navy chinos, Sandro x Reebok Sneakers

2015… Has been a roller coaster. From full-time to self-employed, single to girlfriend, New York to Paris…it’s been a whirlwind but I wouldn’t have it any other way

Life motto… If you want to be successful make friends with uncertainty
