GET TO KNOW ME
MEGAN ARINA

Sometimes I laugh too loud or give dramatic food reviews as though I'm a critic. My attitude is best described as straight-up positive with absolutely no beating around the bush. πŸ™Œ

I'm 5'3", speak 3 languages (but one day I'll know 5), have shaken Hugh Jackman's hand, and can't for the life of me say the word "horseradish"!! I dare you to ask me about it.

In my spare time, I looove to write about my travels which you can read in the Journal. I'm weirdly proud of my insta stories, so if you want to get a good laugh... follow up: *click!*

Wait?? You still want to know more about my background? 😱 Ooook. Scroll right down to read more about my life...

The Full Backstory...

Canadian born, Dutch raised, UK graduated

Oh yes, I'm from a small town - Woodstock, Ontario specifically. 😬 It's one of the most ordinary yet strange places, and I still get terribly homesick. Most of my friends and extended family live there, but it's not the only childhood home I have!

I grew up in the Netherlands for 5 years, giving me the chance to learn a second language and experience another culture and lifestyle. We eventually moved back to Canada, and I finished high school before jumping across the pond to study in the United Kingdom. I even got to live in Berlin for an internship!!

4 years later in 2017, I graduated with a Bachelor's and said "wait, what now?" I was living in Seattle with my dog and parents, self-reflecting and wondering how I could grow. What was the next step? Well, the opportunity came to move to Amsterdam... so off I went!! πŸš€ I spent 2018 working as a full-time photographer / videographer, I learned and progressed as a creative.

Now? I'm a Photography Producer working with fashion brands in-studio, working as my own business, and still trying to make friends (be my friend pls) in NYC!

πŸ‘‰ I'm loud, a risk taker, and completely adore my friends. Traveling over the years + living abroad has really allowed me to learn about others and connect with different cultures, and I think it shows in my work.

WHAT IS MY REASON?

I decided that photography was what I needed to do to stop the ever-changing events happening around me, preserving those close to me and others. Documenting the time in a moment that I know will move forward and holding on to a feeling through the images.

WHAT ARE MY STRENGTHS?

I have a talent with speaking to people, to be a photographer that is vulnerable with others. If I had to choose, personal would be my defining characteristic - learning about people and being relatable to an array of cultures. That's what sets me apart.
