Biography

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.

Advocacy & Fundraising

For over a decade, Meg has been actively involved in Advocacy Projects on an International level.
In 2002 she traveled to Ghana, West Africa with her mother to visit a small rural school that has – still to date – one of the only centers specifically geared towards children who are Deafblind. During this first visit, Meg built relationships that would last far longer than ever dreamed of. As of 2010, Meg has returned to the school nine times. The bonds with the students and staff are lifelong and watching their struggles, progress, achievements, and growing strength has been a life-changing experience for Meg. Sharing these stories through the photographic medium enables them to be easily spread far and wide – through online publications, social media, email campaigns, etc. As the project reaches it tenth year, Meg is working on curating a showcase of the most powerful images to be displayed in key cities where the work was created. The hope in this showcase, will be to invite key figures in local government, the Ministry of Education, influence social figures, families of individuals who have Special Needs and the general public to spread the message that the Disability is not Inability. There is a dire need for more resources and opportunities for children and adults who have Special Needs (ranging from multi-sensory disabilities, developmental delays, etc). There needs to be more teachers, education centers, public awareness, family resources, medical professionals, the list goes on. The Special Needs Community is millions strong and still under-served.
