Michael McCoy I like to think of myself as a storyteller through photography, and my camera lens offers a concrete expression that will transcend time. My passion for photography came in my early years, and it has allowed me to identify and navigate the subtle nuances that make each person unique. Catching them at just the right moment produces exquisite works of art that will be cherished forever. My photographs have been described as engaging, affectionate, insightful and alluring.

My entire life has been dominated by my passion for photography. From the minute I picked up a camera, I was captivated. I love telling the story about the relationships between individuals; capturing those special moments of joy and contentment. Whether it’s a congressional hearing, portrait assignment, or breaking news, I like to capture the in-between moments that are the most candid and authentic.

Over the years I’ve worked successfully in every kind of setting: on Capitol Hill, parks, historic locations, on city streets, in churches, you name it. I’ve also been able to use my skills as a photojournalist to capture the powerful, emotional moments during the Black Lives Matters protests, and the protests surrounding the Freddie Gray case.

A list of Michael’s clients, and his work has been seen in the following publications: Reuters, The Washington Post, The Washington Post Magazine, AARP, Rotary Club, Behavioral Health System Baltimore, TIME Magazine, The Washington Post, The New York Times, The New Yorker, The Wall Street Journal, Getty Images, NBC News, ABC News, MSN, Afro Punk, The Rotarian Magazine, AARP, Newsweek, U.S. News and World Report, Canadian Broadcast Corporation, and Channel News Asia just to name a few.
