Description

Meghan Maloney is an award-winning professional landscape photographer in New Zealand. Her work has let her travel all across New Zealand and she describes herself as an obsessive compulsive checker of weather apps, as weather is absolutely everything when it comes to landscape photography. We talk about the stories behind every photo, including driving silly distances to get sunrise shots on the East Coast and sunset shots on the West Coast from Moeraki Boulders to Lake Matheson to Roy's Peak in 24 hours. Meghan was chasing the Aurora for 7 years, before finally capturing it in 2023. Next on her photo bucketlist is to capture the hoarfrost. Although she has been in the industry for years, Meghan still makes mistakes and has many frustrating "failed attempts." She says that you learn more from making mistakes, than for things going right and that although you may only capture a beautiful photo 10% of the time, the elation you experience makes its absolutely worth it. Her advice to anyone who want to pursure photography is just to, "get out there and practice!"
