I seem to only drop by MI occasionally and promise to do a better job of updating my portfolio more often and to post more.
Hopefully we'll see more models from Atlantic Canada in the coming months.
And don't forget to follow me on Twitter @McCarthy_Photo
Thanks for taking the time to stop by for a visit. I hope you enjoy my work.
Although I remain mostly an action sports photographer and have been photographing local motorcycle and stock car racing for many years, I have moved more into glamour, commercial and traditional portraiture in more recent years and am always looking to update my portfolio and network with new models and artists alike if the concept is interesting and time allows. At this time I am incredibly selective about my TF shoots due to my schedule. If you have a unique idea that you think would be beneficial to both our portfolios, please feel free to contact me, I'd love to hear from you, just please review my portfolio as an interesting idea for many may not be "interesting" to me. I don't shoot fashion as a rule simply because it doesn't interest me and it is doubtful the results would benefit either of us. Some glamour, beauty and fine art - including photo manipulations - does interest me. The more creative the better.
I have been actively involved with the Halifax Photography Society, where I was a founding member and spent many years on the executive, and also spent several years on the executive of the Photographic Guild of Nova Scotia. I teach workshops on Photoshop, Lightroom and in partnership with several other local professionals a Glamour Modelling workshop and am presently involved in co-hosting an educational photography television show through local community TV.

I am available for almost any type of shoot and have standard rates published at my web site.
