Newcastle & Gateshead

Megan Jepson is an accomplished and award-winning photographer, director and editor whose portfolio is filled with bold, dynamic projects.

Megan’s creative vision and distinctive perspective are at the heart of her work, which are deeply rooted in her upbringing in Scarborough, a seaside town in North Yorkshire. The experiences of living in an underprivileged area have profoundly influenced Megan’s identity, driving her to tell authentic stories such as the series Scarborough Girls, an intimate and honest exploration of the community and complexity of women in her hometown.

Known also for her commercial work with global fashion powerhouses like Nike, Levi’s, Balenciaga and Off White, Megan has carved out a name for herself as the region’s go-to creative talent with her distinctive perspective and artistic vision in photography, directing and editing.

In her personal creative practice, Megan continuously sheds light on the strength, resilience, and spirit of individuals from disadvantaged communities. Her talent has been recognised with prestigious awards, including the Portrait of Britain award in 2018 and 2020, her captivating portrait Shona and Bella earning a top 100 place among 15,000 entries. Megan’s photographs were also prominently displayed on JCDecaux screens across the country as part of a national exhibition: they can also be found in the book Portrait of Britain Vol.3.

Megan’s latest documentary project The Hoppings delves into the captivating world of the individuals who bring funfairs to life.
