Mac McCreery is an inspired amateur photographer who lives in Birmingham

 

It is nearly five years since Mac left a Black Country town to live in Digbeth, Birmingham. For Mac, it's the atmosphere that attracts him, the mix of old and the new, the core of Birmingham. He says: "What’s not to love?"

Anxiety issues have often prevented Mac from doing what he wants to do, and is extremely good at doing. He was nervous about taking photos, and he says "there are so many talented folk out there". However Mac has been quick to realise that photography can be his "stress buster". 

 

At BirminghamWeAre we say - Keep the photography coming Mac. They're brilliant and you're extremely talented!
