BIOGRAPHY

Megan Lewis is a Walkley award winning Photographer, author, public speaker and Fujifilm X Ambassador with over 20 years experience in the industry.

In her early career she worked as a full time staff member for Reuters International news agency and then The Australian newspaper. During her time with Reuters her work appeared in national and international publications such as front cover of Time Magazine, the Washington Post and the International Tribune.

At The Australian newspaper Megan covered national and international stories, including the Tampa, riots in Indonesia and East Timor’s bid for independence.

In 2002, Megan left The Australian newspaper to live full-time with the Martu people, one of the last indigenous groups in Australia’s Great Sandy Desert to come into contact with Europeans. Her book Conversations with the Mob (UWA Publishing) was the product of eight years continuous involvement with the Martu, including several years living with them.

This work won Megan a 2005 Walkley Award and her peers voted her winner of the Nikon Photographers Choice Awards in 2006. Her work has been exhibited in Australia and Europe.

Megan is a documentary photographer and a Fujifilm X-Photographer Ambassador.
