Photographer of lonely cars & light. Based in Houston, TX.
With a background in graphic design, Kevin McCauley got into photography simply to be able to shoot dramatic portfolio images of his printed design and advertising work. But, inevitably, the subject matter became cars.
Kevin has been professionally shooting for a decade, with clients that include Genesis, Jaguar, Mazda, Audi, Aston Martin, Lincoln, McLaren, Volvo, Polestar, and more. His work can be seen in Road & Track, Autoweek, and Panorama.
His Instagram has been on lists of 'accounts to follow' in Creative Review, GQ, Esquire, Autocar, The London Evening Standard, and many more.
A video he created was voted the Bring-A-Trailer Video of the Year 2021, and was nominated for the 2022 International Motor Film Awards.
He still makes time for some graphic design and illustration, which – as you may have surmised – also ended up becoming about cars. He designed the book for the relaunch of the Petersen Automotive Museum, and he created and maintains Automoji, a Porsche-themed iMessage App for iPhone that features over 250 emoji illustrations of Porsches throughout history, from Type 64 to Taycan Turbo.
