Scott McAulay

For 30 years I’ve had the privilege of blending my love of people with my passion for photography. I’ve photographed a diverse range of people in numerous countries, from 50 Cent in his NYC offices, to children playing in the dirt lanes of Soweto.

I’ve photographed a world champion free diver, a WBC, IBF, & WBA title holding boxer, burlesque stars, boy bands, rappers, actors, sports people, business leaders, business owners, trades people, news readers, TV dramas, reality TV contestants and an SAS soldier turned mercenary. I’ve worked on location in jungles and lakes in Thailand, and biker bars in Southampton; on beaches in Spain, Australia, the Maldives & Nicaragua; in studios, hotels and offices in New York, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, London, Zurich, Auckland, Sydney and Melbourne. 

My clients have ranged from health care organisations, telecoms, insurance and energy companies to fashion brands, advertising agencies, magazines and celebrities. I’m fluent at shooting all types of people in all situations. 

Whether working in a studio or on location, my talent lies in capturing a narrative behind each beautifully lit image. 

Over the last six years I’ve also regularly shot alongside directors and DOP’s on film and television sets to capture marketing campaigns, publicity images, and unit stills for broadcasters, television productions, and advertising clients. 

I started my career in Auckland, spent 12 years in London, and I’m now settled in Melbourne with my wife Georgina and our son Oscar
