Joe McNally is an internationally acclaimed, award-winning photographer whose prolific career includes assignments in nearly 70 countries. McNally is known worldwide as not only one of the top, technically excellent photographers of his generation, but his charming demeanor, confidence, and humor make him a sought-after choice from CEOs to celebrities to commercial and magazine clients alike. 

McNally is equally comfortable climbing buildings or lighting a telescope to capture quiet, sensitive subject matter with confidence in medical surroundings. He has shot numerous cover stories and highly complex features for National Geographic, LIFE, and Sports Illustrated, where his research skills and unmatched preparedness were highly valued.

McNally won the first Alfred Eisenstaedt Award for Journalistic Impact for a LIFE coverage titled, “The Panorama of War.” He has been honored numerous times by Communication Arts, PDN, Graphis, American Photo, POY, and The World Press Photo Foundation. He has also adapted to the Internet-driven media world where his work is regularly cited in social media surveys as a source of inspiration and industry leadership. McNally is a proud Nikon Ambassador and also a recent member to the Capture One Ambassador team.

His latest book is The Real Deal: Field Notes from the Life of a Working Photographer
