My name is Victoria McGinty. I’m 21 years old, I am a type six according to my enneagram chart, and I am a libra with endless ambitions. I was born and raised in the midwest, and while I am based in Cleveland, Ohio, and Erie, Pennsylvania, I am always willing to travel for my clients.
Currently, I am a Senior at Mercyhurst University in Erie, where I am studying to obtain a B.A. in History, a double minor in English and Photography, and eventually an M.S. in Secondary Education.
In my free time, I enjoy being outdoors, shopping for vinyl records and candles, and spending time with my Cavalier King Charles Spaniel-- Buster and my Cat, Nova. Some other interesting facts about me are that I am a pop-culture enthusiast, I love flamingos just a little too much, and I hope that my passion for photography takes me all over the world to places I have never been before.
I have been taking photos for as long as I can remember. I have always had a love for photography, but I did not realize it was my life's passion until I was sixteen. Since then, I have dedicated my life to learning and growing as a professional photographer.
my friends would describe me as...
A DREAMER, INCREDIBLY AMBITIOUS, & EXTREMELY EXTRA!
When Did You Get Into Photography?
As a child, I would use up a ton of my parents' disposable cameras. But, for my 16th birthday, my parents gifted me a Canon Rebel T5i, and the rest is history! Since then, I have dedicated a portion of my life to photography as a loyal canon gal!
What makes your work stand out from other photographers?
I always try to put a unique twist on my work, whether through framing or playing around with the sun. My goal is to find ways to make the client(s) personality shine through in any way possible. I incorporate both factors into my work by establishing a relationship with my client(s) to ensure they are comfortable with me and in front of the camera.
What is your favorite thing to shoot?
As a hopeless romantic, I would be biased to say weddings and couples. However, each type of portrait I specialize in is special in its own way. Whether I am shooting my hundredth graduation cap toss or a married couple’s first kiss, I am honored to know that I got to play a role in capturing and preserving one's memories.
What is the best part about being a photographer?
Aside from meeting and working with some of the nicest people in the world, my favorite thing about being a photographer is getting to witness some of life's most beautiful moments through my viewfinder and taking unforgettable images that my clients will love and cherish for many years.
So now that you know a little bit about me...I’d love to know about you! PLEASE FEEL TO REACH OUT TO ME!
I have a favorite Starbucks drink for every season of the year.
Iced Guava Passionfruit Drink
