This week we catch up with two photographers who share insights into taking your skills to the next level. First, Photofocus publisher Rich Harrington sits down with Joe McNally to talk about passion, photography, and business. Then Robert Vanelli catches up with wedding photographer and director of WPPI Jason Groupp.
Joe McNally is an internationally acclaimed photographer whose career has spanned 30 years and included assignments in over 50 countries. He has shot cover stories for TIME, Newsweek, Fortune, New York, Entertainment Weekly, The New York Times Sunday Magazine, and Men's Journal. He has been at various times in his career a contract photographer for Sports Illustrated, a staff photographer at LIFE, and currently, an ongoing 23 year contributor to the National Geographic, shooting numerous cover stories for those publications.
A photographer since the age of 15, Jason attended the Fashion Institute of Technology’s intensive photography program. After graduation Jason expanded his portfolio to include commercial and editorial work. Soon his expertise for clients like J. Crew, Conair/Cuisinart and Men’s Health began to inform his wedding photography, which led to a distinctly intimate editorial style that has earned Jason a coveted spot as one of The Knot’s 2007 “Best of Weddings” Pick. Jason is also the Director of WPPI and has maintained his photography studio in West Chelsea for the past 12 years.
