Meet Eric Garcia-March

“At McKenna, my goal is to not only help you achieve better images via post-production but also via pre-production.”

Before becoming McKenna’s photo consultant and in-house retoucher, Eric Garcia-March had been retouching photos since his days as a student at Brooks Institute of Photography in California. He received a Bachelor of Fine Art in Painting from Kansas City Art Institute and a Master of Studio Art from New York University.

Throughout his 15-year professional career, as a commercial photographer and retoucher, his international client base included advertising agencies, fashion houses, editorial publications, luxury brands, and entertainment industry contacts. He worked with companies such as Austrian Airlines, BBDO, Hewlett Packard, Ogilvy and Swarovski. In 2018, Vogue featured his photos with Sukeina. Over the years, his images decorated subway tunnels, billboards, and magazines. He received accolades from the Black & White Spider Awards, International Aperture Awards, International Photography Awards and the Association of Professional Photographers – Spain.

While he loved seeing his work on display nationally and internationally, he quickly began receiving more satisfaction from helping others. Eric taught a variety of photography classes at the Image Processing and Multimedia Technology Center in Spain and post-production classes at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. He led photo walks, conducted workshops, served on judging panels and was the chapter representative for the American Photographic Artists – New York.

In 2019, he relocated from New York City to Iowa to be near family. After falling in love with the area, its people and the simplicity of life, he joined the McKenna family.

When he is not helping others at McKenna, he spends his time photographing flowers, writing poetry, playing guitar and singing in his church’s choir.

English is Eric’s native language, but he is also fluent in Spanish and Catalan.

He has truly been a joy to work with.

★★★★★

I just cannot say enough about Eric's knowledge, teaching ability, and patience. My technical IQ of Photoshop is somewhere in the high double digits. Eric has taken as much time as necessary to get me to the point where I can make the necessary adjustments to finalize my image for printing. He has truly been a joy to work with. That said, I would highly recommend without reservation, McKenna in general and Eric in particular, for all of your photographic printing needs.

Coaching has improved my photography by lightyears.

★★★★★

Another reason I am a customer is the outstanding educational programs available through McKenna Pro’s live webinars and one-on-one coaching. My coach, Eric Garcia-March, has helped me improve my photography by lightyears, from understanding correct lighting to photo retouching. His instruction has ushered me into a new level of skills that I did not have before.
