If you’re anything like me, you’re pretty tired of 2020 so far and ready to move on to whatever 2021 has to offer.
Like you, I’ve had plenty of time to consider life and all it’s complicated questions this past 10 months, even with a full time “day job” that has kept me busy non-stop since this pandemic began. With all that reflecting, earlier this year, I decided to spend more time with my family in the future and have “retired” from my position as the official photographer for Scotia Speedworld and the Maritime Pro Stock Touring series. Please know that I enjoyed the last 8 years tremendously and appreciate the friendships and “family” more than I can describe. I’m going to miss my race family and promise to drop by from time to time to see how everyone is doing.
That said, I’m currently re-evaluating my photography business as well. Moving away from sports photography means that a large part of my experience and portfolio now goes away, which for a business, is problematic at best. LOL!
As many know, I also have a second, separate photography business called Elegant Boudoir, which until now has been completely separate from McCarthy Photographic. Commercial clients aren’t interested in seeing this more “adult oriented” work side by side with commercial, headshots or property images. Sports, in general, and motorsports specifically is a family endeavour and I have a number of teenagers and younger folks who follow me here and on Facebook.
So, since I have no interest in beginning to shoot weddings again or to do personal or family portraits, this site will become strictly for commercial work and the majority of my work will be happening over at my other site, elegantboudoir.ca and on Twitter @Elegant_Boudoir.
So, thanks one last time for welcoming me into the racing family and all the best in the future!
