Michael O’Sullivan is a creative professional photographer based in County Cork, Ireland, working in both Commercial and Fine Art arenas. Michael is the former Chairman and founder of Cork International Salon of Photography. He is a former president of the Irish Photographic Federation, and is a very experienced photographer in both the amateur and professional arenas, having had his work published both nationally and internationally. He produces Landscape, fashion, commercial and portrait work, but is best known for his personal work, which may be described as “Conceptual Fantasy Art”. Stylistically, his work references the painters of the Renaissance, Baroque and Romantic eras, as well as the great fantasy artists of the 20th century, but retains a unique signature. His current obsession is his “Fallen Angels” series, which is a vehicle for his view of the world, and Humanity’s place in it. He is a Fellow of the Irish Photographic Federation, and a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society. Michael is a member of the Adjudication panel for photographic distinctions with the Irish Photographic Federation.
