Welcome to Steven McGregor Photography
Photographer Pietermaritzburg, KZN, Durban and surrounding areas.
I am a photographer in Pietermaritzburg, KZN. I specialise in People, Portrait, Event and Commercial Photography and I am passionate about creating and capturing those special moments. My aim is to ensure that all my clients, private and corporate, receive outstanding service and an exceptional quality product either in my studio or on location.
Like most people I have been taking photos all my life suing all sorts of cameras from Polaroid to 35mm film cameras. Coming from a construction background, most of my earlier photos were of construction sites and progress photos. I always tried improving the shots to add interest by finding new and unique angles and better compositions.
In 2006 during a trip to Europe I decided to start taking my interest more seriously. In the early days most of my attention, away from construction, was on landscapes, architecture and wildlife. As I progressed my interest in photographing people grew but I was very uncomfortable at the beginning.
Professional Photographer Pietermaritzburg
To boost my confidence, and abilities, I enrolled in a Professional Photography course through the New York Institute of Photography. This was a great move because it not only showed me where I could improve but also taught me the business of photography. The course also got me interested in commercial and product photography.
My passion still lies with landscapes, architecture and wildlife and this helped on the commercial side. Many clients want their product shots outdoors and some even want animals in the advertising shots without using compositing.
Event Photography almost came naturally. With my background in project management it was easy to manage shoots at large events. The biggest challenge is rapidly changing light conditions and low light. A very good knowledge of my equipment and reading light conditions made this a breeze to overcome.
Feel free to get in touch and let me see how I can assist with your important photography needs.
