Kevin was very nice; we meet just before sunset and went to pre-scouted areas in which to capture typical Chicago shots. Would recommend if you’ve never been to the city and would like to get basic instruction on night photo elements such as long exposure,…More
Fine Art Photography Prints by Kevin OConnell
A Fine Art Gallery Of Creative Imagery
By Award Winning Photographer
These galleries are a fine art collection of cityscapes, skylines, urban portraits and creative photography that will sooth your soul. Inspiring award winning images from around the world.
If you love images that tell a story, you came to the right place. Kevin’s street portraits are stunning. His approach to street photography is a little different than most. He not only takes amazing urban portraits, he talks to his subjects and listens to their stories.
Kevin has been photographing since 1978, after taking a high school photography class that he fell in love with. Kevin is also a philanthropist, helping many of the homeless and less fortunate in Chicago. In 2013 Kevin became very ill with Multiple Sclerosis, loosing his eyesight in the right eye. This is also the eye Kevin used to look through his camera and compose his wonderful images. The left eye was his week eye throughout his life, needed glasses at the age of 5. Not the left eye is the one he has to use to look though the camera.
*Now That’s Passion*
If you’re looking for a professional photography workshop in Chicago, have a look at Kevin’s 2 hour classes. Even though Kevin is a street photographer, he will customize your workshop for night photography, skylines and cityscapes. You can read some of testimonials below.
He also teaches a great 6 day Route 66 workshop that is incredible.

I booked the last night tour of the season for 9 october. Unfortunately my father in law became very ill to the point that my wife and myself had to go back in a rush to our country, just to find out that the old…More

I went to Kevin earlier this morning and had quite the adventure. I am a sub-bar photographer at best so I was very excited to meet Mr. O’Connell. When I arrived Kevin couldn’t have been friendlier and that was very appreciated. During our two hours…More
My daughter and I recently worked with Kevin on June 13, 2015. Neither of us knew much about Chicago, and we knew less about our cameras. Kevin was great to learn from on both fronts. My daughter said, after the tour was complete, that she…More
