Michael McWeeney writes, “I became fascinated with images around the time I was a five-year old, when I started clipping photos from newspapers and magazines. At 11, I picked up a camera. I remember the anticipation for the film to be developed at the local pharmacy, and the excitement that came with finding that one good shot in the pile of prints. I had no idea that the skill I was cultivating would provide the opportunity to travel, meet people, and tell their stories. For more than 25 years, I’ve worked to capture the moments that define who we are, the places that shape us. I’ve shot everything from hard news to travel, fashion to animals; there’s probably nothing that I don’t enjoy shooting. My work has covered the gritty, dark side of humanity and the bright, lively streets of a tropical paradise. In 2007, I began delving into multimedia and have become adept at video, combining images, copy, and music into woven stories that captivate my audience.” michaelmcweeney.com
