Megan Willis Photography
How did you get started as a photographer?
I started out as an equine photographer. Mostly working for people who needed to sell horses and required good photos. Having my own baby spurred me in the direction of newborn photography.
What did life look like before photography?
Tell us about a day in the life of a professional photographer …
For me, it’s the usual morning routine to get the kids organised and to school/daycare. From there, I ensure the studio is still ready to go (Iset up the day before). Fresh water, room heated etc. My assistant arrives at 9.15am. Clients arrive at 9.30am and usually stay until 12/12.30pm. After this it’s clean up time, quick bite to eat. Attend to admin and editing. Then pick up the kids. Afternoons are spent with the family, and then after the kids are in bed I get back on the computer for more admin or editing.
Any memorable moments?
Mmmm this is hard without being cheesy. I think all newborn photographers have funny poo stories. And as a newborn photographer we are witness to so so many incredibly special stories, it is a priveledge to be a part of this.
If you could photograph 1 thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Babies. Easy answer.
What is the best thing about your job?
Tell us something we don’t know about professional photography …
Clicking a shutter is the easiest part of the job.
If you weren’t a photographer, what would you be doing?
Most likely still managing projects.
Here’s a blank cheque! What are you going to spend it on for your business?
A brand new kit. Body and a selection of lenses. And an ongoing business coach.
