    You could use a method like this:

        private IMedia CreateMediaItem(int parentId, string fileName, IContentTypeBaseServiceProvider contentTypeBaseServiceProvider)
            IMedia newFile = _mediaService.CreateMedia(fileName, parentId, "Image");
            string filePath = HttpContext.Current.Server.MapPath("~/img/" + fileName);
            using (FileStream stream = System.IO.File.Open(filePath, FileMode.Open))
                newFile.SetValue(contentTypeBaseServiceProvider, "umbracoFile", fileName, stream);
            return newFile;

    And call it like this:

    var contentTypeBaseServiceProvider = Current.Services.ContentTypeBaseServices;
    IMedia myImage = CreateMediaItem(parentId, "myImage.jpg", contentTypeBaseServiceProvider);

    And you should be able to inject the IContentTypeBaseServiceProvider into your controller instead of using Current. But see if this works first.
