Margo Reed

Margo Reed is a contemporary photographer and cinematographer who specializes in portraiture and oral history documentaries. She combines fundamental principles of photojournalism with modern storytelling techniques, particularly in lighting and story structure.

After completing a contract with the Philadelphia Inquirer in 2019, Margo established her studio to produce engaging content for people she previously would have worked with on news assignments. Today, that often includes healthcare institutions, government organizations, historical societies, and fellow artists. 

Margo hails from rural Pennsylvania, where she grew up next door to her grandparents. Her first work in photography often took place in their home. She also produced a project about their full time care for their disabled daughter there in 2020.

Margo has had work featured in
People, New York Times, NPPA's News Photographer Magazine,  Associated Press, and the Philadelphia Inquirer, among others.

"Margo is the prototype of what a professional photographer should be: professional, timely, courteous, and a pleasure to work with. She is conversational, light-hearted, and willing to take pictures over and over again until you are happy with the final result."

- Kris Gardner, PhD. Candidate at Temple University

"Working with Margo is like working with a longtime, trusted friend. She listens carefully and observes quietly. You can count on Margo to illustrate not only the big picture of your photo session, but a handful of creative touches and simply blissful moments along the way."
