I graduated in Zoology from the University of Liverpool and since have been working as a wildlife researcher and presenter for Lush. The natural world has always been my primary fascination but since picking up a camera at age 10, I began to understand how photography could be used as a powerful tool for conservation. I have been incredibly fortunate to travel around the world taking images, and the exquisite beauty of birds is something I am forever trying to capture. Photography does not lie within the boundaries of language, so I strive to communicate and tell a story through every photo I take. Personally, it’s about raising awareness about the plight of species and engaging new audiences. Starting out as a young wildlife photographer myself, I now reflect on my experiences knowing that it enabled me to learn and look at my surrounding environment differently. It really shaped the person and photographer that I am today.
Below we feature some of Megan’s photography. 2019 was the year of the penguin for Bird Photographer of the Year, with more images of this group of birds received than ever before. Therefore, it is rather fitting that Megan has chosen to feature penguins as her showcase gallery.
