Mac Downey ’13 – Alumni Update

Shortly after starting college I began working for the music publication “The Come Up Show.” I ran their social media until I was given the opportunity to do photography for one of the concerts the publication was covering. My boss loved the photos and promoted me to photographer/ journalist. Since then I’ve worked as a freelance photographer/ journalist for publications such as “The Heavy Press”, “Spill Magazine”, “The Come Up Show” and “Glass Candy.”

Artists/Concerts I’ve shot include: SNOOP DOGG, JUICE WRLD, DEATHCAB FOR CUTIE, JULY TALK, YUKON BLONDE, 2 CHAINZ, WIZ KHALIFA, FRENCH MONTANA, AMONG OTHERS.  Festivals/Venues I’ve shot include: Osheaga Music Festival (Montreal), CBC Music Fest, Budweiser Stage, Rebel Nightclub, Mod Club, Danforth Music Hall, among others.
