As a photographer + environmentalist, Meg Haywood Sullivan splits her time between shooting campaigns and pushing for environmental stories through editorial features and social platforms. A third-generation Nikon shooter, she picked up her first camera at age 8 and spent much of her childhood road-tripping around the country in her family’s ’87 Westfalia with her father, a photographer, and mother, an internationally-renowned artist. Meg went on to study photography at Pratt Institute in New York and then headed to Montana to pursue environmental studies at Montana State University. Fast forward to present day, Meg’s career has taken her from contributing to a Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial with the New York Times to shooting a story with National Geographic Adventure following John Muir’s footsteps to the fastest retreating glacier in Yosemite. 

In addition to shooting for environmentally-minded companies like KEEN, Patagonia, prAna, and Clif Bar, Meg is constantly in the works with projects that use adventure as a way to engage people and teach them about the importance of our natural landscapes. Her passion lies in exploring mankind’s relationship with the great outdoors while stepping outside of the box to be a part of the greater good.
