Maine Media Workshops Master Photography Instructor, Joe McNally, Talks About his Work and his New Book The Moment It Clicks
Speaker: Joe McNally
“What you see on these pages is not about a particular place, people, time or cause. It’s not about one type of picture or another. It’s not about sportsmen or fashion models or war or politics or the news of the day. It’s about being a photographer,” Joe McNally, from the premise of The Moment It Clicks, 2008, Peachpit Press.
Joe McNally is an internationally acclaimed photographer, whose career has spanned thirty years and covered assignments in over fifty countries. Although the majority of his career has been spent shooting for magazines such as Time, Sports Illustrated and National Geographic, in the mid-nineties Joe served as LIFE magazine’s staff photographer, the first one in 23 years. In addition, McNally has photographed commercial assignments for Target, Nikon, and Sony, to name a few. McNally is a recipient of the Alfred Eisenstaedt Award and has been honored by Pictures of the Year, The World Press Photo Foundation, The Art Directors’ Club, American Photo, Communication Arts, and Graphis.
