2013 Film Photographer of the Year

Erich Mcvey

I’m based in Oregon, where I live with my beautiful and talented wife, Amy, who is always by my side as office manager, film loader, assistant and better half. We predominantly shoot weddings, but also do a fair amount of portrait and editorial work, with jobs taking us all over the US and abroad (luckily, we both love to travel!).​ ​Shooting film inspires me, allows me to best achieve the look and feel I want for my work, and gives me the opportunity to connect with my clients during shoots in a way I don’t think I could if I was shooting digital. Shooting film makes me a better photographer, and a more fulfilled artist.
