Focusing on scenery/landscape themed photographs, McGinnis attempts to capture the
image in its natural setting. He does not use any type of image enhancement tools. He
believes, “the photo you see in the lens at the time of capture should, for the greater
part, be the image you print.”
McGinnis has had previous exhibits in Carpinteria, CA, and some of his photos proudly
adorn walls throughout the U.S. and Europe. He is proud of his Santa Barbara heritage,
including Spanish and Chumash ancestors. He also attended several schools in
Montecito, Santa Barbara High School and Santa Barbara City College.
