Kyle McKiernan's Bio

I got my first DSLR, a Canon Rebel T3 when I was 14 as a gift and I have not looked back since. I now specialize in Automotive Photography and have been lucky enough to work for Automotive Manufacturers, Marketing Companies, Auto Shows, and local Automotive events over the years. Although I specialize in Automotive Photography, I love to shoot wildlife photos as well; above and below water. I love how challenging underwater photography can be as you have to think about your settings, lighting, and composition all while trying to maintain your buoyancy and not running out of air.
