I focus on creating bold and colorful images of unique landscapes typically hidden in the dark. Using long exposure and light painting techniques, I aim to bring to life things that were once forgotten--abandoned houses and farmsteads, churches, old vehicles, tractors, trees, and more. I love capturing the beauty that comes after the sun goes down, creating my own imagining  of the world under the stars. As a farmer's wife and mother of three young boys, I also love the peace and quiet that comes from venturing out after everyone else has gone to bed.    

My work has been displayed in several local galleries and local businesses as well as featured online and in publications.  The entire collection is for sale on canvas, metal, standout, and more. I welcome commissions and am always looking for new places to photograph, so be sure to fill out the contact form if you have any ideas for a shoot!

My name is Megan Sugden and I'm a photographer from Hallock, MN.  I've been capturing the night sky since 2015 when I saw the most beautiful display of Northern Lights I'd ever witnessed. The lights danced across the entire sky, and I did the only thing I knew how--grabbed my camera and started taking pictures!   From my front porch in rural northwest Minnesota with only the prairie spanning for miles, I had the perfect view of the sky, and over the past few years have been able to capture countless  auroras around my home in Kittson County and beyond.
