Here at Forge Press we’ve decided to create a new feature series, showcasing the portfolios of student photographers here at the University of Sheffield. Welcome to the first Student Photographer Showcase where we are featuring the top 10 photos from second-year Dental Student from Scotland, Megan McLeod.

Megan first got into photography whilst trying to use her father’s old camera on a family holiday to Hawaii in 2014, so that she could show everyone back home how beautiful Hawaii was. Being able to show people parts of the world that they may never get to see through her holiday photos is one of the things Megan loves about photography, as well as the thought that someone can see the world through her eyes. Sunset landscapes, wildlife, and astrophotography stand amongst Megan’s favourite types of photography and she hopes that she’ll be able to shoot more soon.
