Just a Jamaican Soul Living it up in Manhattan

So, let me tell you a bit about myself and my love for photography.

Hiya! I’m Kali McCarthy. Originally from the sunny and vibrant Jamaica, I now find myself in the bustling streets of Manhattan, New York. This city is like a playground for someone like me who's all about creativity. It's here that I get to unleash my photography skills and capture the beauty of the world around me.

Capturing Life, One Photo at a Time

You know, I've always believed that there's something beautiful in everything - every person, every object, every fleeting moment. That beauty? It’s just waiting to be caught on camera. And that's what I love doing! Well, that, and I'm a huge basketball fan too (but more on that later).

My Photography Loves: From Natural Light to Fashion to Weddings

Photography is my jam, and I'm particularly fond of shooting in natural light, diving into the world of fashion photography, and capturing those once-in-a-lifetime moments at proposals and weddings. I’m a bit of a perfectionist, not gonna lie. So, if I'm working with you, expect nothing but the best. I’ll keep striving for that perfect shot, every single time.

A Happy Accident Turned Lifelong Passion

Here’s a little story for you - I didn't actually plan to become a photographer. It all started about ten years ago with me just taking casual snaps of my sister and nephew. Funny thing is, my sister left for Canada and forgot her camera with me. She soon realized how much I enjoyed taking photos and decided to gift it to me. Best. Gift. Ever. That's how I accidentally stumbled into this amazing world of photography.

Always Learning, Always Growing

Since then, I've been on this incredible journey of learning everything I can about photography. I'm always trying to up my game, to stand shoulder to shoulder with the best in the field. While I'm not there yet, I’ve been getting some pretty awesome feedback from my peers, which only pushes me to do better.

More Than Just a Photographer

Aside from photography, I've got this huge love for basketball. It's another passion that keeps me moving, excited, and challenged.
