Hi, I'm Meg . . .
. . . a Jersey girl livin in Georgia. I'm based in Woodstock with my husband Sam Sower, our German Shepherd Ash and my two horses: Reina, a 15-year-old Andalusian mare and Silver, a 19-year-old Quarter horse gelding. I've been shooting professionally since 2015 and a horsewoman most of my life.
Here in Georgia I am proud to be the Official Photographer for the Good Horseman Foundation Dressage Show Series as well as the BellaRose GDCTA Schooling Show Series. You can also find me covering dressage events at Chatt Hills Eventing.
For the past 7 years I have been privileged to be part of the internationally renowned Susan J. Stickle Equestrian Photography team. You can find me shooting with them at the Adequan Global Dressage Festival in Wellington, FL over the winter, at the US Dressage Festival of Champions in Wayne, IL, various USDF Regional Championships throughout the fall and the US Dressage Finals in Lexington, KY.
While dressage isn't the only thing I shoot, my education as a dressage rider shapes the way I shoot. I specialize in timing the most flattering and biomechanically correct moments of a given movement. My goal is always to highlight connection and expression - whether down centerline, at a clinic or during a private shoot.
While my background and education is primarily dressage-routed, today I am a bit of a mixer - I enjoy working from the ground, liberty work, trails, bareback riding in addition to more traditional arena work. Currently, I'm super interested in the works of Kathleen Lindley Beckham, Mary Miller Jordan, Carolyn Resnick, Mark Rashid and Anja Beran, Martin Black and Warwick Schiller.
I graduated from Mount Holyoke College in 2014 where I studied English, Geography and Film. As an active member of MHC's Intercollegiate Dressage Association Team, shooting team practices and shows sparked my serious pursuit of professional equine photography.
