About

Steve McCord is a queer Director of Photography based in Brooklyn, NY.
Originally from East Africa, McCord found film as a way to connect two worlds: being a white kid in Kenya and visiting the U.S. as the white kid from Kenya. He has hitchhiked around Morocco, been deported from Vietnam, and run a marathon around a volcano in Patagonia.
