Images copyright Joe McNally

We all have our bucket lists of people we'd like to meet, things we'd like to do, and places we'd like to travel. So, at a time in history when heroes are limited, meet one of mine...Joe McNally.
I consider myself one of the luckiest guys in imaging, having worked with and met so many great artists over the years. But in 2013, there was still one on my bucket list, which was to have dinner with Joe McNally someday. It was Skip's Summer School in Chicago, and Joe joined us as a speaker. We grabbed dinner together the night he arrived, and then after his keynote the following day, he stayed for the conference just so he could meet and talk with more photographers.
Since then, we've crossed paths so many times at different events and even projects. And when the power was down in a large area in Connecticut, I filled in for Joe when ClickCon did their online series during the pandemic. Of course, my presentation didn't compare to what Joe would have presented, but that didn't change my pride in filling in for him.
The bottom line - his new book is out. Just click on the link to Amazon and order yours today.
This is a book that belongs in every photographer's library! I just ordered mine a few minutes ago - now I need to get him to stand still long enough to sign it!
He truly is the "real deal!"
