Former Navy Chief Christopher McGee Turned to Photography Following Retirement

 

When retirement rolls around, formerly employed individuals turn to new hobbies that will eventually let them fill the vacant time on their hands that was once occupied by their jobs. 

For Christopher McGee, a retired Navy Chief for the Department of Defense, and current firefighter/EMT it was photography that piqued his interest.  

Looking at the World Through Different Lens 

Having recently retired from 24 years of working as a Navy Chief and being within five years of retiring from the Department of Defense, Christopher now has time on his hands to practice what he likes: photography. 

 

“I have a deep passion for photography.  I started my business two years ago. I have always been intrigued with art and explored my creativity,” he shared. 

Although having only started his career two years ago, Christopher has been studying and practicing photography for over 10 years now. 

“I began to deeply study photography and create images the way I see them.   I’ve owned cameras in the past, dabbled with my drone, and created free images for many people. The support from family, friends, and of course the feedback also fuels my hunger for a better creative image,” Christopher said. 

He added that the aspects of life that demand a deep focus when following a career path such as he did is to block out the naysayers and concentrate on your craft.  

“The only competition should be yourself.  Your feedback and clientele are valid enough.  This is an age of information therefore self-study is the key,” he said. 

Gaining Traction Quickly 

 

“The success I’ve received is exponential in just a short period.  I have been published by a very notable magazine company, In the City Magazine (Atlanta), by Quadir Thomas.   He among many other creatives has praised my work,” the photographer said. 

 

He added that he now surrounds himself with a small group of professionals while he concentrates on his own individual creative niche.  

 

“The key principles and values I’ve learned thus far are to remain a student because photography is an everyday learning experience, and remain hungry and motivated.  I’ve also learned that I should polish my creative style,” he said. 

 

Christopher has a studio in Meridian Mississippi and is currently working on fine-tuning his social media presence and structuring his studio to compliment his style.  He is currently an active firefighter serving his community
