WEATHERFORD — A photographer popular for shooting high school sports in Weatherford is accused of indecency with a young photo subject.

A 16-year-old female student claimed that 39-year-old Dax Morgan took photos of her clothed and unclothed, and touched her inappropriately.

According to an arrest warrant affidavit, Morgan admitted to investigators that he knew the girl's age, but snapped a topless photo and then deleted it.

The story came to light after the alleged victim's parents saw text messages from Morgan, whose Touchline Studios is known for shooting Weatherford High School sports and other school activities.

The Weatherford ISD made no comment, but did say Morgan is no longer credentialed to shoot school events.

Parker County sheriff's investigators got a search warrant and seized cameras, computers and other possible evidence.

Morgan was arrested and released on $25,000 bond. He did not return phone calls.
