Robert McGaffin is a trained assassin in the art of shooting fine photography.
Most notably known for his work in the automotive journalism world, McGaffin has photographed everything from famous custom cars and amateur racing events to capturing the spirit and soul of a first time garage-build. McGaffin’s talent has been lauded by car enthusiasts and experts worldwide including a recent mention by Chevy High Performance Magazine saying:
“…very proud to have the absolute best feature photographers in the industry. These shooters have the ability to make a 20-year-old paintjob look fresh from the paint booth, and a freshly painted car, still appear wet. Yes, they are that good. I’m talking about Robert McGaffin (you’ve seen his photos just about everywhere... Up-and-coming photographers do their best to emulate the techniques of these guys but fail to achieve an outcome of the same quality.”
What many don’t know about McGaffin is after receiving his degree in Fine Arts, Photography, McGaffin spent years cutting his teeth photographing countless products and people for catalogs, brochures, corporate marketing materials and websites. McGaffin is as comfortable working in a studio as he is climbing a rock (or hanging off the backside of a pick-up truck) to get just the right shot.
Throughout McGaffin’s career he has consistently aimed to capture the essence of his subjects to portray what the eye doesn’t see immediately and give the viewer a sense of life and character. While artistry is foremost in this line of work, McGaffin realizes that good business is paramount and is known for being prompt, meeting deadlines and staying on budget.
In his personal life, McGaffin enjoys capturing rich family moments on his in-law’s farm or on road trips in his Camaro, with his wife and three sons..
