I am Kali McCarthy, born and raised in Jamaica. I currently reside in Manhattan, New York which happens to be the perfect place for me to let my wild creativity loose. I believe in everything, every object, every situation… there is a beautiful part of its being that can be captured on film. Capturing its beauty is the only thing i enjoy doing (maybe not the only thing… I love basketball too).

I enjoy photography on a whole, but my favorites to shoot would be Natural Light Headshots, Fashion photography and Street photography. I am a perfectionist, so expect nothing less. And if i can't achieve perfection, I will forever try to achieve it. The funny thing is... I've always been into the arts, but photography sort of stumbled into my life a decade ago while taking pics of my sister and nephews while they visited... needless to say my sister went back to Canada without her camera... she realized just how much I enjoyed taking pics and gifted it to me. 

From then on... I have done everything to learn more about the craft... to be amongst the giants. Still a far way from it... but i have constantly gain recognition from my peers as a photographer with a huge "upside".
