About

 

My name is Megan Lendman and I truly believe that the world is a beautiful place. When I look around I see the tall, straight lines of buildings, the natural spontaneous curves in the branches of trees, the gentle light gliding over a face and the composition inspires me to grasp the moment. People inspire me with the light and love that radiate through relationships, art, business endeavors, or simply their personalities. Photography for me is a way I can better appreciate the world around me while showing others the light that I see in the world. 

My philosophy for photography is to realize the light within (people or nature) by capturing the light through the medium of photography on a day where love, creation, or aspirations fuel that light very bright for all to see.
