#MCDBehindTheLens Vol. 9 – Shane O’Connor


“I got into music photography late 2017 when I couldn’t get tickets to a LANY show in Dublin so I pretended to be the photographer. Shortly after that I managed to get Imagine Dragons as my second ever gig by getting in touch with their management directly, and ended up shooting candids for the band backstage!”

An incredible talented photographer and videographer, Shane’s unique shooting style and stunning colour grading has attracted work from the likes of Electric Picnic and Coachella, along with a host of big names. Away from the stage, Shane is a huge advocate for the Irish creative sector, recently publishing a series of beautiful black and white portraits showcasing a number of talented directors, photographers, musicians and artists.
