Mark O'Connell Photography
Superb photographer & highly experienced Superyacht Captain
Mark O'Connell is well known and highly recommended within the yachting industry not only for his superb photography but as Superyacht Captain himself for the last 20 years.
Having been a member of the elite British Parachute Regiment for five years, and completed four tours of duty in Northern Ireland at the height of the Troubles, Mark's career ended abruptly when he fractured his spine in a sky-diving accident. A friend's introduction to crew for a top dinghy sailor led to fate intervening when one of his fellow race crew invited him to join the 130 ft S/Y Aiglon as a deckhand... the rest is history…!
He has Captained Motor yachts Princess Mariana, Maridome, acted as relief captain on MY Attessa lV, Pegasus 5 & Turmoil, as well as overseeing construction of Mosaique in Istanbul and White Rabbit in Australia.
With travelling extensively around the world, his love of photography to record his travels blossomed into a lifetime passion, with so many compliments along the way, he set his own website and one can understand why he is so highly regarded.
There is a huge variety of images, from Superyachts to crew, food to underwater and wildlife shots. His speciality has been to capture Superyacht Moods and Splash Colour Shots, where an image is reduced to black and white, then colour is added back to make one aspect stand out. He also specialises in digital art photography, sketch and watercolour style shots.
He is based in the south of France but happy to take on work anywhere in the world, as a M.C.A Master Yachts 3000T, for full time, job sharing or relief work.Read more
