Megan is the lead photographer for Megan Hauk Photography, which focuses primarily on dance and movement photography. Megan is a Seattle native who has had a lifetime love of photography and filmmaking. Her passion for photography really started taking off when she studied film photography and darkroom development; specifically loving the technical and scientific aspects of the process. Though currently shooting exclusively digital, skills acquired and fostered during these years are what gave Megan the foundation for all of her photography today.
Why DANCE photography?? Megan started her dance training at the age of 3. In 2013 she earned her BFA in Dance from Cornish College of the Arts. To date she has performed with local Seattle dance companies, choreographed for a wide variety of styles and skill levels, has had nearly 10 years teaching experience and several years of dance studio management. Megan has chosen this path as a professional photographer to continue to be a supporter and active member of the dance community which she loves so much!
“I have been lucky to have photography follow me throughout my life starting as a young child having access to DSLR, film, and video cameras. In 2016 I was even luckier to have my partner tell me that I could make a career out of my passion for photography. When I discovered the niche that is dance photography I was sold! I am so grateful for each chance I get to work with dancers of all ages and I can’t wait to see where this journey will take me.” -Megan

At the end of the day supporting Megan’s passion for dance and dance photography is really import to me.”
