Wayne Moran The Photographer

As a Minnesota based photographer and artist, Wayne focuses his skills and energies on landscapes, cityscapes, architectural, nature and portrait photography.

His best work comes from images first painted in his mind. He mulls over a prospective image for weeks or months, seeing it from different angles and perspectives, then finally deciding what to capture, he takes action. The result is images that deeply touch a person’s emotions and powerfully evoke memories and dreams.

His images are used commercially by companies and organizations ranging from Financial Services firms, mom and pop Ice Cream shops and The Basilica of St Mary. The images are used to communicate their shared vision and values. Book, magazine and calendar publishers have featured his images in their publications and on their covers. His photographs also grace and enhance the décor of many fine homes.

Wayne Moran’s Full Biography

I was born in southern California the middle of five children. I loved to camp in the mountains and swim in the ocean. We moved to central Minnesota to be closer to family and I finished up grade school and high school there.

I graduated from the University of St. Thomas, St. Paul, MN with a degree in Mathematics and Air Force ROTC studies and a concentration in Physics, Computer Science and Music.

I met my wife in college while singing in the college choir and started dating after singing at a fellow choir members wedding. We married one year after college while I was in the Air Force and we moved to New Hampshire.

I Entered the Air Force after college and became a weather officer. Remember Tom Clancy’s book “Red Storm Rising” The weather officer character was me.

After the Air Force we moved back to Minnesota to raise our growing family and I become a software engineer.

I became a Christian in 1993 through the ministry of KTIS Christian radio and the Holy Spirit. I have always been interested in issues of faith and belief and that is what you will find frequently discussed in this blog.
