Hi! My name is Megan Matty and I am currently a senior at the University of Missouri studying photojournalism. I have plans to graduate from Mizzou in May 2022. I am currently a photo editor at The Columbia Missourian. And I also am currently doing an independent study where I focus on women and girls sports near and around the city of Columbia, Mo. During this independent study I am also taking a look at the coverage of women and girls sports when it comes to photos. I was a photographer with The Missourian over the summer of 2021. And continue to do assignments for them every now and again.
I have always had a passion for sports. This started when I was younger watching any and all sports with my Dad. I later combined it with another passion of mine: photography. And my passion for both has only continued as I have grown older. I have had the opportunity to take photos of many different sports. Including: college football, men’s and women’s basketball, softball and so many more. With every job I bring my knowledge of the sport and enthusiasm to capture every moment and tell every story. Through the big wins and the terrible losses. I’ve seen and captured it all. And I’ve loved every second of it. And I can't wait to keep sharing the stories I've captured with you!
