Warren McCormack

Business Owner and Prime Photographer

Warren McCormack Photography is an international award winning studio, receiving awards in the US and Australia. Published in books and magazines. 

Always looking to push the creative side, Warren continues to innovate every aspect of the studio. He has often said, "it's a complete joy to know what I do for a living can mean so much to another, for many years! How many jobs allow you to do that?". 

Photography is an art form and documenting a couples wedding, bridal and engagement session are opportunities to express that art form. Warren thrives on these opportunities to see the moments that unfold on the day and to express them in an imaginative way.

Warren's love of photography stretches back to his childhood years. Photographing everything he could, either with a 110 film camera or an original Polaroid Instant Camera. Moving to an SLR film camera in his early twenties. Spending many summers learning to visualize an image and translate that into a photograph. Studying art, art history and BW photography & darkroom development. Photography is a process, from visualization, translation into setup and then capture. This process is one of those aspects that come naturally to Warren after many years of studying and practice. Studying art and art history was hugely important, as it has given him the ability to see structure with color, texture and composition. These are nothing without the human element, the true emotions between a couple. Was recognizes that it's the combination of the two that will really complete an image and make it very special.

He continues to learn photography, recognizing that it's a skill that continually matures much like any art form. Spending 10 days each year at WPPI in classes and talking to fellow professionals from around the world. Submitting work to print competitions around the world and now for the last few years assisting at the WPPI print competition. An invaluable experience.

Warren has served on the Raleigh ISES board of directors for a year, recognized for his continued professional business growth in the area.
