For those of you who are unfamiliar with Michael's work, here is his website: http://www.obrienphotography.com/ I met Michael in the 1990's when he moved his family to Austin, Texas after having done a six week assignment here for National Geographic. He is an icon in the industry having done the ground breaking, "What's on your Powerbook?" campaign for Apple, Inc. A beautiful and timeless campaign for Bank of America and countless amazing photographs for magazines, from Texas Monthly to Life. And of course, National Geographic.
I decided to interview Michael after the publication of his new book, Hard Ground. It's an amazing book. I hope you enjoy hearing Michael talk about what he does, how he does it and the thought processes behind it.
I'm so honored that he made time to do this interview with me.
The book is called, Hard Ground.
