Photographer Edwin L. Morris of Auxvasse was taken into custody Tuesday by the Callaway County Sheriff’s Office and charged with felony invasion of privacy.
The sheriff’s office received a call in December from a woman who reported that she realized she was being videotaped in the dressing room while on a photo shoot with Morris’ studio, Morris Photography. A three-month investigation ensued, which revealed a total of four females had been recorded in the dressing room, in varying stages of undress.
Sheriff’s investigator Bob Smith said that all four women were of legal age at the time of the incidences. Morris’ website, morrisphotographystudio.com, stated that “we specialize in children’s photography, but also offer maternity, newborn, student, family, senior, engagement and wedding photography, as well as product photography for corporate clients.”
Morris’ first court appearance is schedule for June 6.
