Meg Majors is a portrait and documentary photographer whose focus is two fold; helping to promote the local and international music scene as well as humanitarian efforts locally and abroad. Since studying at the School of Visual Arts in New York City, Meg set out to turn her passions into not only a career but a lifestyle.
According to Majors, “The truth is in the details. Seeking the simplicity and beauty in everyday moments is my mission. I utilize available light and photograph my subjects in a natural, comfortable setting to produce organic images.” Meg’s love of culture and Reggae music led her to open up her already impressive resume to the world of Reggae and to date has photographed some of Reggae’s greats.
Her curiosity and passion for culture and visual story-telling has brought her to all corners of the earth, where she has on-going documentary assignments in Africa and Europe. She uses her unique perspective to help advocate and fundraise for humanitarian aide-based organizations / educational institutions. Bringing her passion for music, people, and photography together, Meg joined Reggaeville in 2009 to share her vision with the world.
