Megan Pauls

Megan A prairie girl born and raised, Megan has been interested in art since she picked up her first crayon.  Today her interests include photography, collage and crafting with just about anything she can get her hands on.  She holds an honours degree in fine art from the University of Manitoba as well as a studio photography diploma from the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design and is a self-diagnosed Photoshop addict.

Megan’s personal photography explores issues of innocence and maturity using materials reminiscent of childhood, such as candy and dolls.  When she’s not playing with her camera or other assorted art supplies, Megan teaches introduction to digital photography classes through the University of New Brunswick’s College of Extended Learning. 

“I think we could all benefit greatly from a daily dose of fantasy - a small reminder of the magic and whimsy we believed in when we were young.”

Erin Legare

In 2009 she graduated with her Diploma in Fine Craft Major in Photography. She then went on to complete the Diploma of Advanced Studies in Applied Art through an Internship program at Canadian Forces Base Gagetown (partnered with the New Brunswick Community College) where she worked as a photography intern.

While at the NBCCD Erin collaborated on many projects with Megan Pauls and the end result of these was Dragon-Fly Photography Studio. Erin focuses on the photography aspect of portraits with a bit of work in Photoshop. Her personal photography covers portraiture and the odd landscape work and she dabbles in different photo techniques such as HDR and other effects.

Erin’s non-photography hobbies include reading historical fiction, fantasy and urban fantasy books, playing World of Warcraft and arguing with Megan about Stargate episodes.
