About - Hamilton photographer Tony McKay

Tony McKay

Hamilton Photo + Video

I am definitely going to write something awesome about myself here… sometime?? But really, I don’t know what to say. In the early days, I shot a lot of weddings and more recently worked for leading Hamilton brands, along with shooting hundreds of portrait sessions. Being Hamilton based has meant shooting a lot in Auckland and BOP, which is awesome. Some jobs are flash, and some are simple, but they are all awesome in their own unique way. My preference is for a relaxed experience with people moving forward!


Are you married? Yes, 25+ years or so and two children (Wilkie and Daisy)

Got a bad habit? I drink way to much coffee and probably should be a bit more active, and by probably I mean definitely.

Goals? If I could have a loft-style studio space one day then I would be pretty wrapped, I don’t need it for work really but I just want it to feel cool.

Favorite colour? I love earthy tones and maybe it’s not a popular choice but rusty brown spins my wheels.

Any advice for businesses hiring a photographer? I would say that it’s just as important to have a great experience as it is to get good results. Life is too short to not enjoy the journey. At the start of every project, I will ask who it’s for, and what problem you are solving… everything tends to fall into place in terms of what to make after that.
