McBride is a photographer of reportage, art photography and book illustration. He is also known as a painter and sculptor. He has had a 50 year independent career. McBride grew up in Chicago, attended the Art Institute of Chicago then the University of Vermont and finally graduated from Syracuse University College of Fine Art in 1953. He was a private student of Norman Rockwell.

He served in the U.S. Army from 1953 to 1955. He has lived in Germany since 1955. In 2004 McBride received the Dr. Erich Salomon Prize, which is bestowed by the German Photographic Association (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Photographie). His work has been published in Twen, among other European magazines.

The bulk of his photography work is not often seen in the USA. His style is loosely documentary and deals with Rites of Passage and coming of Age. His 1975 book Show Me! (German title Zeig Mal!) created a scandal. He has subsequently followed with four other books. His solo exhibitions since 2000 have included: the Galleria d'Arte Moderna. Bologna; Dany Keller Galerie, Munich; Galerie argus fotokunst, Berlin; Galerie Camera Work, Berlin; Galerie Eva Poll, Berlin; Galerie Brauzeh Five Frankfurt / Main.
