MEET YOUR INTERVIEW GUEST… MEGHAN.
The more she explores New Zealand, the more she falls in love with their country. She’s SUPER passionate about sharing moments and experiences that she knows will inspire gals to get out and have their own adventures!
So where did it all begin? After writing a family blog for a few years, she realised she was happiest in the great outdoors photographing the beauty of NZ. They moved from Wellington to Cambridge in 2015 and so she started exploring around the Waikato, Bay of Plenty and Coromandel discovering many hidden gems worth visiting! She’s a sucker for a great sunrise or sunset and she loves spending her days hiking, chasing waterfalls and beautiful reflections.
She’s travelled the length of NZ, all the way from the tip of Northland all the way to the Catlins in the deep south, and her great passion is to encourage you to experience these wonderful places for yourself, whether you are a photographer or not.
A big milestone for her recently was becoming one of only a handful of Sony Advocates in NZ which means she get to partner with Sony to promote the brand with landscape photography workshops and other photography events around New Zealand.
Adventures: Managing to complete the Routeburn Track with a completely bung knee after Day 1, hiking into Lake Marian for sunset and back out in the dark in August 2019 for an amazing sunset experience, hiking up to Pouakai Tarn in the dark and having to sleep on the floor in the hut to get ‘the shot’ at sunrise the next morning. Earlier this year having to go on some solo adventures to Cathedral Cove and Taranaki sleeping the back of the car to try and get ‘the shots’ for a Sony project she was working on.
Challenges: Health is an ongoing challenge as she suffers from Crohn’s and I have the odd flare up which really sets me back in my plans, COVID-19 has definitely been a challenge losing all my planned photography revenue for the year.
Things she loves to talk about: How amazing the New Zealand outdoors is and how so many Kiwis have yet to experience our beautiful country. How photography can invoke emotions in people and how I love to share images that speak to people on a deeper level, whether its a memory of home that they miss or a time in their lives, or to speak hope in difficult times.
