Lonan O’Herlihy is a very successful photographer who also have a YouTube channel.
I hope you’ll enjoy the interview;
How did you fall in love with photography?
By learning to take photos for Instagram (and buying a great camera)
How important is having a unique style as a photographer? How would you describe your style?
Lifestyle/fitness. being unique is very important on Instagram these days, as the market is saturated with the same content.
Where did you grow up? How have your roots influenced your sense of style?
I’m a US/UK citizen, so have made sure to take the best of both. Only certain clothing fits me also as a result of the gym so i have to be careful with what i buy.
What advice would you give to aspiring photographers out there?
Don’t spend money on a photographer, instead teach yourself and you can have more fun with it. Spending time learning what you like the most is the best way to do this, as each photographer has their own style, it may not always suit you.
Have you ever run out of ideas?
Yep! Then if I’m in a certain area, I’ll google what others have done and put my own spin on it, but only once I really don’t know what angle to go for.
How do you find places and models for your shootings?
I travel a lot, so finding places is normally quite easy. My camera follows me everywhere so it’s normally a case of I just land on something that could look cool.
What’s the one piece of photo gear you couldn’t live without?
Is it an obvious answer to say my camera?
Do you edit your photos? If yes, which programs do you use?
Lightroom CC. Easy as it’s on my laptop and my phone
