COLIN McGURIE was born and reared in Galway, ireland where his family still resides. After studying photography in Dublin he left for the United States in 1992 to pursue a career in photography. He describes how he has embraced the contrasting cultures his two homes on either side of the Atlantic, to create a successful business and become an acclaimed lifestyle shooter/Director.

Offers COLIN, "I embraced the idea of relentless hard work, in pursuit of the American dream. However, I have always carried with me the authentic nature and light hearted spirit of the Irish culture that I grew up in. And for me it's a winning combination...I work hard; always do good work. And I make sure to be nice and have a few laughs along the way."

Perhaps it's also this cultural diversity that is behind COLIN's beautiful imagery. He is a master of creating emotion moments on command for his clients. Images that reek of authenticity. But his trait of working hard pushes him to that these scenes and elevate them further with beautiful lighting and mood that moves the viewer.
