Mike O’Meally is an international photographer best known for his work in skateboarding, having his photographs featured in Thrasher, Slap, Skateboarder and Transworld magazines.
While he is well known for his exciting action shots, it is perhaps his portraits and ability to capture those unique ‘in between’ moments that help his work to stand out in a highly competitive arena. He has travelled extensively and attributes this to broadening his vision of the world. As well as skateboarders, his subjects range from amateur boxers in East LA to zinc miners in Tasmania. He has been shooting skateboarding for 20 years and commemorated this milestone with a retrospective exhibit at Sydney’s China Heights Gallery last year.
Originally from Australia, Mike is now based in Los Angeles where he is the senior photographer for Transworld Skateboardingmagazine.
