Terry O’Neil – Storyteller

Terry O’Neil – Storyteller

When reflecting upon my own work I start to recognise the desire to capture those fleeting moments of normality, where my client is no longer a collaborator in creating the image but a bystander unaware of the intruding lens.  Born a short distance from where I spent my own formative years (although many years before I hasten to add), Terry ...

Pennie Smith, The Clash and that (Im)perfect frame

It really forced home that sometimes the imperfect and the serendipitous capture works so much better than the over-composed, over edited image. I love my music.

Behind The Mask

I've launched a new personal project over at Mark Cannon Photography.

“Looking at the sun set over the mountains. Closely followed by how easy it is to split a bill, the skytrain and the libraries.” I finally met up with Anastasia for our photoshoot on a late summer evening on the North Shore. We’d originally aimed to get a sunset session on a local Sky Train platform, however, it wasn’t something ...

Brits in Vancouver – Katie’s Story

“It's beauty. Every time I fly into the city, I see the mountains and instantly know that I'm home.” Moving tale Katie arrived in Canada in 2011, loves Burnaby Central Park , an oasis of tranquility surrounded by a bustling urban environment and that’s where we met for our photo-session and conversation. Was it the lifestyle or maybe quality of ...

Brits in Vancouver – Richie’s Story

“People seem to prioritise their work life balance whereas in London the focus is on work and building a career. In London it feels very easy to get sucked in to the hamster wheel of life where nothing changes.” Being here It was back to shooting in the natural environment as Richie is definitely an outdoor person. He chose Spanish ...
