Through The Lens is a web format series presented by the fine folks at ADORAMA which provides a brief look into a photographer’s work, their inspiration, how they go started and ultimately the direction they’re heading in their career. While the majority of the profiles have been interesting to look at, I have to say that I’ve aways had difficulty fully connecting with many in view that I had yet to see anyone featured who’s work I felt fell in line with what I love to shoot personally…until now.
Michael O’Neal is a fashion and lifestyle photographer based in San Francisco who’s work I’ve been following from way back. It’s difficult to pinpoint when I stumbled upon him but needless to say it was through Instagram and since then has been a constant source of inspiration with how I approach anything or anyone with a camera. My only gripe with these series is that I wish they were longer in length.
