Terms like “icon” and “legend” get thrown around pretty casually these days, but in the case of photographer Joe McNally, they are not only absolutely appropriate but also well-deserved. He’s shot for some of the most prestigious magazines and clients in the world, including TIME, Newsweek, LIFE, Sports Illustrated, New York, and National Geographic. His work has earned him dozens of awards, including the first Alfred Eisenstaedt Award for Journalistic Impact. He’s a best-selling author and has recently released his newest book The Real Deal: Field Notes From the Life of a Working Photographer. He’s also humble, funny, and tells terrific stories and I am so grateful to have had the chance to sit down with him for a bit. Here’s my conversation with photographer, director, author, storyteller, and Nikon Ambassador, Joe McNally.
