Ep 130 - Megan Maloney
Megan Maloney, a devoted lover of New Zealand, expresses her deep passion for the country through captivating landscape photography. Her journey began with a family blog, evolving into a profound connection with the outdoors. Relocating from Wellington to Cambridge in 2015, Megan explored the Waikato, Bay of Plenty, and Coromandel, uncovering hidden gems. Enthusiastic about sunrises, sunsets, waterfalls, and reflections, she traversed the length of NZ, from Northland to the Catlins, to share the essence of the land. As a Sony NZ Digital Imaging Advocate, Megan collaborates with Sony to build a community of photographers, offering landscape photography workshops and events. Her ultimate goal is to inspire others to experience the beauty of these locations and enhance their landscape photography skills for breathtaking images.
In this episode, we discuss the story of her photography journey from being a blogging mom to a full-time professional landscape photographer in New Zealand. Sharing her experiences trekking and traveling, Megan discusses setting personal and professional goals, learning through patience and failure, and the importance of embracing and adapting to technological changes in the field. Megan also touches on keeping a healthy balance between work, photography, and family life, and provides insightful advice to new photographers.
I hope you enjoy the show!
