Steve Scurich is the owner of Steve Scurich Photography and is a graduate of McKay Photography’s Pro Academy. Steve has worked with MPA since 2015 and has an infectious passion for the craft and education!
Steve is an award-winning photographer and has photographed several multi-million dollar real estate sessions including many celebrity homes.
Steve recently also was awarded a Gold Medal from Professional Photographers of America for his Image Competition work. He was one of only 60 in the world to achieve this and he did it in only his third year of competing which is a remarkable task!
As a child growing up in Santa Cruz, CA, Steve loved art. He could draw pretty well, took up photography during his high school years, and was told by many teachers he had an artistic gift. Steve appreciated the compliments, but it was a calling he largely ignored as he pursued a career in business.
After receiving a Bachelor of Science Degree from the University of the Pacific, Steve spent nearly two successful decades in the corporate world, before starting his own photography company in 2013.
Getting started, he used to say, “I’m a corporate guy who had a desire to become a professional photographer.” However, this was not actually the case. Truth is, he had always been an artist and spent years trying to fit into a mold that just didn’t quite work. Today, he can really appreciate the marriage between his artistic expression and years of training in the business world.
Steve is an excellent communicator and educator. Plus he is just an all around nice guy! His photography career has taken off and with good reason.
