Hi, I'm Meg . . .
. . . a Jersey girl newly relocated to Northampton, MA. I've been shooting professionally since 2014 and a horsewoman most of my life.
While dressage isn't the only thing I shoot, my education as a dressage rider shapes the way I shoot. I pride myself in timing the most flattering and biomechanically correct moments of a given movement. I strive to bring as much technicality and precision to the ride as you do. As a horsewoman and avid biomechanics nerd, I'm as picky as any dressage rider when it comes to the end result: purposefully-timed photos that tell an authentic, powerful story.
I am lucky to have a German Shepherd named Ash and two horses: Reina, an 18-year-old Andalusian mare and Silver, a 24-year-old Quarter horse gelding.
For the past 9 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, the US Dressage Festival of Champions in Wayne, IL, multiple USDF Regional Championships throughout the fall and the US Dressage Finals in Lexington, KY.
I freelance for a number of dressage photography teams, including Q2 Photography at the World Equestrian Center in Ocala and John Borys Photography.
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 Anja Beran, Kathleen Lindley Beckham, Mary Miller Jordan, Carolyn Resnick, Mark Rashid, Martin Black and Warwick Schiller.
I graduated from Mount Holyoke College in 2014 where I studied English, Geography and Film. I was an active member of MHC's Intercollegiate Dressage Association Team; shooting team practices and shows sparked my serious initial pursuit of equine photography. I am thrilled to have returned to the pioneer valley on a more permanent basis!
