Carl Mahoney was born in the wrong era. He should have lived in the 50’s alongside Humphrey Bogart and Marilyn Monroe when bona fide stars were elusive, where presidents were worshipped and smoking was still cool. With his camera lens, he is able to capture that old Hollywood charm while smothering it with edge and sex appeal. His photographs tell a story of mystery and misconduct.
His style and versatility makes him a brilliant headshot photographer for actors as well as for live music performances. He captures personalities rather than poses. He looks for the essence of the artist and then helps create the atmosphere for them to comfortably live. Mahoney shifts effortlessly from studio to location, to the stage for live band performances or to an actor’s home for headshots with the utmost ease and professionalism, producing images worthy of promoting you, your film, or your band.
