Although Scott McAulay has built a career photographing the famous, he’s just as interested in capturing the lives of ordinary human beings.

“I love working with everyday people in their own environments,” he says.

Scott was raised in Birkenhead, Auckland, where his father owned a pharmacy for more than 45 years. It was here that he discovered his interest in photography and people.

“My dad had a great rapport with his customers, and I pretty much grew up in that pharmacy, spending a lot of my afternoons helping out. My work today is about making everyday people look strong and a little heroic in whatever they do.”

Scott lives in New Zealand with his wife and son. His clients include Air New Zealand, Visa, TVNZ and Warner Bros.
