Happy to present these two beauties!
This past Friday (24th March, 2017), I was finally able to make it up to Western Kentucky University to take photographs of some of my most recent projects – and I am most pleased with how these turned out! Check them out below, on the Biology As Art page, and on Facebook! They will be for sale on Etsy soon enough!
Expect more in the coming weeks!
Sorry for the lapse in activity! It has been quite the busy semester, but never fear! I have several new species that I have been working very hard to finish in prep for a photo shoot! Currently, I have nine new species to add to this (slowly) growing collection, with roughly 12 more that are still in the clearing and staining process. However, the next photoshoot is not scheduled until the week of March 20th, so keep your eyes open!!!
Additionally, I am happy to announce that a partnership is currently in the works that will allow me to add additional species to the site (and potentially the product line for prints!). If everything goes as plans, I will be receiving a few species that are already cleared and stained that I can photograph for both advertising purposes (on their end) and for sale as quality prints on here and the MCGMorph Etsy shop (more on this soon!).
But for now, please enjoy a recently finished photograph of Trigonostigma heteromorpha, the harlequin rasbora (below). I am extremely pleased with how this photograph turned out and Kristen Gilbert deserves a good deal of credit for helping me out with the finishing touches. Additionally, please check out and share the word about our current promo! If you like my work with seahorses, I am currently selling both the head and full body photographs as 8 x 10 for the discounted price of $120 (40% off; you save $80). This promo will only last until the end of March, 2017. Check it out, here!
I am excited to announce, and help spread the word, that Dr. Steve Huskey’s new book, “The Skeleton Revealed”, is published and now available for purchase! I had the pleasure of working with Steve when he served as one of my committee members and as a mentor during my time as a graduate student at Western Kentucky University. Steve provided me with ample opportunities to further my understanding of vertebrate anatomy, in addition to providing me with many of the specimens that you now see up on this website.
Steve’s book can be purchased through John Hopkin’s University Press, as well as on Amazon (links take you directly to the book). For a sneak peek into the amazing skeletal displays presented in his work, visit “The Skeleton Revealed” @ Issuu.com .
I have been wanting to post this one for a few days. Finally made the time to do so. A full body image of Sander canadensis, the sauger. It goes well with that magnified image, I think! Hope you all enjoy it!
In celebration of Valentine’s Day, I am offering 40% off on any purchase of $50 or more! If you are interested in purchasing a print, you may do so through two means.
- You may contact me through my MCGMorph blog.
- You can visit my Etsy shop and use thePromo Code: ALIZARINHEARTS on checkout.
As always, the money from these sales allow me to continue clearing and staining, as the supplies can be rather expensive and the process is time consuming.
Best wishes and enjoy this time with your loved one(s)!
Hi everyone. I have just finished the edits on two new photographs and I am VERY happy with how they turned out! I would like to thank Nathan Tillotson, an aquatic biology student at Murray State University, for providing me with the gar larvae (as well as the sucker fish and shad larvae!) to clear and stain. It has been great to add a few larvae to the collection and to upload on the site for everyone to see.
As always, feel free to contact me at anytime regarding my work.
Happy New Year! In celebration, enjoy five new photographs that were finished today!
In celebration of Winter Solstice, I am offering 25% off on any purchase of $50 or more! If you are interested in purchasing a print, you may do so through two means.

Best wishes and safe travels during this holiday season!
The MCGMorph shop has just been overhauled. Prices have been reduced (mostly) in efforts to be standardized. Due to this, I am no longer able to eat printing and shipping costs – but those have been standardized as well! All prints shipped within the U.S. are 7 USD, while those shipped internationally are 9 USD.
Shipping takes roughly 1 and 1/2 weeks from the time of ordering. This is due to me sending a print request to Shutterfly and having the print first sent to my address. This is in order to inspect the print for any damage or blemishes that may have occurred during the printing or shipping process (yes, ink sometimes bleeds and it is occasionally overlooked by the Shutterfly staff). If and when the print meets my standards, I ship it to your address.
Additionally, I am happy to add a new print to the store – one that I am quite pleased with! A full body photograph of a larger eastern tiger salamander (Ambystoma tigrinum).
