“Jo was recommended to us by organisers of the Auckland 7s tournament.  We were really impressed with the quality of images from the 2015 Oceania Championship and believe Jo was able to capture some great action shots on the diamond of our 18U players.”

– Pandy Fruean,  U18 Executive Officer,  Baseball New Zealand


“With just days to spare, we engaged Jo as official photographer for the inaugural run of The Great Auckland Bed Race! We were so busy making the event happen that we gave Jo only the scantiest idea of the shots we required, and she was pretty much left to work on the fly… She excelled with this brief, and we were absolutely delighted by the quality of her imagery. Her shots truly captured the essence of this quirky event and the personality of the participants simply shone through her lens! Although other photographers provided us with snaps from the day, we have used Jo’s imagery almost exclusively to promote the 2014 event and her photos are now synonymous with our inaugural Great Auckland Bed Race run.”

– Samantha Jung-Fielding,  Founder and Organiser,  Great Auckland Bed Race


“At the Stroke & Stride we have been delighted with excellent photographs taken by Jo McCarthy that captures the atmosphere and all the action from our swimrun events.  Jo’s attention to detail is fantastic and her photography is always most professional.”

– Craig Browne,  Event Director,  Stroke and Stride


“Jo McCarthy did a great job providing numerous quality action photos of the 2013 Roller Mills Under 13 rugby tournament games hosted in North Harbour at Silverdale”
