My name is Marty Maguire and I launched this website to nurture my interest in doing photo, video, and creative digital media work. My personal modus operandi with these creative mediums has always been fundamentally communal, collaborative, and social, thus I emphasize my receptiveness to contact through the web for anything related to these crafts.
I moved to New York City in June of 2017 after spending the first few months of the year successfully resolvingsome health complications while enrolled in a weight loss program at the Duke Diet & Fitness Center in Durham, North Carolina. During my time in Durham, I was able to accomplish many of my goals related to improving my health, including a loss of approximately 40 pounds.
Before my time at the Duke DFC, I lived back in my hometown of San Francisco for the 8 years that followed undergraduate education at New York University, where I earned my BA in psychology through the College of Arts & Sciences. Also during college, I took elective courses in film photography through NYU's Tisch School of the Arts.
Most of my recent photos are shot with my Canon 6D camera through a 24-105mm f/4L lens, but I do have experience working with other cameras, including medium format film cameras.
For lighting, I have three studio strobe lights and a Speedlite flash unit. I also have a hair fan.
