par Island Slalom Tour 18 Janvier 2014, 19:05 INTERVIEW Photographe

Direction le pays de la Guiness à la découverte d'une artiste qui s'appelle Megan et qui est aujourd'hui en interview sur le site de l'Island Slalom Tour!


Where do you come from ?

-I’m Irish.



Could you describe you in few lines?


-I like to photograph a lot and enjoy going out and socializing with friends.





Where do you live? Is it cool ?  And Why it is cool?


-I’m from a little surfing/ skating seaside town called Bundoran in County Donegal, Ireland. Its fun in the summer because there are so many people that come to visit and you make a lot of friends and end up in a serious amount of bizarre situations, which makes for good photographs!


Could you tell me when and how did you get the urge to make pics?


-I always had a fascination with taking photographs because my mum used to take a lot of photographs when I was younger. I guess it just stemmed from that? My Dad was a painter also so during my childhood I was always surrounded by images and paintings.



I find yours pics really beautiful. You took the course or is it a natural gift?



-Aw thank you so much. I began to get proper into photography when I was in school, photographing friends and areas around where I lived. I ended up going on to study it in college and have been photographing ever since.




Happens to you there to exchange ideas with other photographers? And if so, which ones?

What inspires you most?


-What inspires my photography is just everyday life and constantly looking at images all of the time whether they are physical prints or on a computer screen. I have a wall in my room that is full of photo cards and things I find that have an interesting image on them.



Is there a cliché especially important in your eyes, an image that symbolizes more than it is? Or do all your photos convey a story in their own way?


-I sort of set out most of my photo shoots or projects with a concept in mind. I usually find most of the people I photograph online or through people I know. In my opinion each set of photographs most definitely portrays some sort of story. I guess that all comes with the opinion of the viewer though as each individual can depict something different from each photograph.



This job requires a lot of implications, dedication and sometimes sacrifices, what advice would you give to someone who wants to follow in your footsteps?


-Stay positive with your thoughts. You are going to get a lot of knockbacks and a lack of replies but my advice is to keep powering through. Stay creative and try do work that is very ‘out there’ and somewhat different from others.




Do you have a website where we can see your pics ?


-I have an exciting website in the making that will be available soon. However in the meantime you can view my images via Facebook, Tumblr and Instagram via the links below.







A last word ?


-Ehhhhh, thanks for interviewing me I hope people find it informative and a good read.
