MeetTheAJSMeganB

Now that you’ve gotten to learn more about me and Sarah Dorio, I thought you’d like to meet our newest member, Megan Bowers of Pictory Productions. Megan is our videographer, and I cannot wait to see all of the ways she helps make our workshops even better.

I met Megan at Alt Summit, and we instantly hit it off. I knew she would be a great addition to our team. She’s spunky, too, and I love that. You can see some of her videos in the Marrakech post as well as on my Instagram, and be sure to visit her website for more.

Q: Tell me a little bit about yourself.
A:Your full name? Megan Bowers
Where are you from? Pittsburgh, PA
What do you do for a living? I make brand films for creative businesses.
What is your role on the AJS Workshop Team? I’m the videographer!

Q: Tell us about your background.
A: I have been creating video content for over 10 years. I’ve filmed everything from broadcast news to brides to businesses.

Q: Describe your expertise for the workshops.
A: My job is to capture the awesomeness of Annette’s workshops. My initial objective was to market other workshops, but the attendees love it because it also serves as a keepsake for them and their experience.

Q: What do you enjoy most about being a part of the AJS Workshop Team?
A: I love being surrounded by so many talented professionals (both the teachers and students). I always leave the workshop with lots of lessons and inspiration.

Q: What is your favorite part of exploring a new destination?

Q: Just for fun (and in true Annette style), what is your go-to cocktail?
A: An Aperol Spritz (I’d drink it for breakfast if I could.)

Today, I’d like you to meet Sarah Dorio, our fabulous and super talented Marrakech workshop photography instructor. You know how much I love Sarah after last week’s post about Project Soar. She is amazing, and I am happy to introduce her here today.
