Meet the judges – Megan MCCubbin

Zoologist and conservationist, Megan McCubbin, adds a welcome new perspective to this year’s TPOTY judging panel. She is also a talented photographer with a passion for wildlife photography and a keen interest in other photographic genres.

Joining the judging panel for the first time this year is someone who may be familiar with if you’re interested in wildlife and conservation, Megan McCubbin.  We’ll find out more about her background and career shortly but first we started by asking Megan how she got  into photography.

“I first started taking photos at the age of 12. I was given a small, snappy camera, and I really enjoyed it. When I eventually graduated to a Nikon D200 my attention turned to trying to tell stories and capture beautiful moments. I try to be creative and artistic, it doesn’t always work, but when it does, it is so worth it.”
