They launched Photography By McGee in 2012 where Brian was the principal photographer and Audrey worked as his assistant photographer on all of his sessions. However, due to Brian's increasingly demanding film and TV work, it was decided that, with Audrey's love and passion for being behind the camera, the business would be officially handed in 2015 where she enjoys now provides creating professional headshot and portrait services to individuals in the acting, fashion, music, portrait and music industry.
As a background, Audrey has been involved in the music, entertainment and associated industry for nearly 40 years and has worked for some prestigious and well known music industry orientated contact so has a vast experience in the world of music, fashion, beauty and entertainment.
