About the Presenter
Richard McCarthy is a Wedding Portrait & Commercial Photographer based in Tubbercurry, Co. Sligo. His impressive portfolio features work with a series of high profile clients, including Etihad Airways, Coca Cola, Aurivo and the Rose of Tralee.
With over 15 years’ experience using the Canon EOS system, Richard utilises EOS functionality to enhance his workflow and increase client involvement, to great success.
“During commercial event work, I utilise the Wireless File Transfer System to showcase my images instantly on print and screen. For studio work, I used the wireless tethering features to involve my clients in the process.
For weddings, I have cultivated a workflow with a two camera system that allows me to shoot weddings on my own. I can also provide extra services on the wedding day such as same-day slideshows and social media for suppliers. Through the use of the 600EX-RT Speedlite, I have tailored my OCF to produce dramatic outdoor and indoor images with ease.
Two years ago, I embraced the EOS R. The advantages of the new mirrorless system has steered me to change my process entirely. I can achieve sharper results and gain feedback instantly, without taking my eye off the client. And now that I’ve added the EOS R6, I take advantage of in-body images stabilisation (IBIS), multi AF capabilities at my fingertips and more custom wireless functionality. My workflow efficiency has improved significantly as a result.”
