Bill O'Brien

This has recently become more than a hobby. I have a background in design, technology, telcom and fine art.

In 2009 I got my first DSLR, Within a few short lovely years, the camera is a tool I love to use and photography is my canvas. Photoshop, Lightroom, Nik Silver Effects my software based paint and brushes. I haven't painted for several years. You can find some of them here.

I love surrealism, modern conceptual and mixed media, fine art and I'm highly influenced by the imagery and philosophy of the Buddhist traditions. The fine art master's are a constant source of inspiration for me. Salvador Dali, Picasso, Frida Kahlo, Ivan Albright, Ed Pascke, Natalie Shau, and Sally Mann are huge source of inspiration.

My work generally falls within categories of portrait, concept, and landscape. The expressions of human form and face I find the most compelling and make up most of my work.

If you'd like prints, email me at yangzab at gmail. My work is copyrighted, and illegal to use for any use without proper licensing. If you would like usage rights or purchase a high quality print email me.

I'm spending most of my time over on Flickr. However, 500px is an increasing source of inspiration and feedback.
