My guest this week is one of Ireland’s very best documentary wedding photographers: The fab Shane O’Neill. Winner of 6 Reportage Awards and 2 Story Awards, speaker at the inaugural Doc Day, and all-round lovely guy, Shane shares so much on the episode, including:

  • how he got into documentary at college, and getting his first wedding,
  • getting in the zone when shooting back-to-backs,
  • something we don’t talk about too much: group shots and couple time,
  • working with videographers,
  • the story behind one of his specific Reportage Awards,
  • workflow,
  • why images in 16:9 format can be so effective (like in one of his Story Awards),
  • tips for if you’re feeling a bit stagnant,
  • speaking at Doc Day (and why you should attend the next one)
  • and so much more…

As always, you can listen on all the usual places: Spotify, Amazon Music, Google Podcasts, iTunes/Apple Podcasts, YouTube, and below in this post:
