Born and raised in Baltimore, Michael A. McCoy picked up a camera as a young teen. It wasn't until his two tours of duty in Iraq and the loss of his mother, though, that McCoy took up photography as means of focus, expression, and escape. His instinct for light and composition combined with his curious mind and engaging personality produce tender yet powerful portraits of fellow veterans combating PTSD, individuals supporting the Black Lives Matter movement, men in barber shops, youth at play, and mother and fathers with children. In other words his portraits, and his camera, are his voice and they speak of both the struggles and the joys of life and deployment. 


Michael A. McCoy's work has been featured in Time, Rolling Stone, and The Baltimore Sun. In 2017, Time named McCoy one of the "12 African American Photographers You Should Follow Right Now."
