Gary O'Brien - Photographer
Charlotte, NC USA

I work as a photographer, multimedia producer and picture editor at the Charlotte Observer , a 215K circulation newspaper in the middle of the Carolinas. I shoot daily assignments using both digital still and video cameras, and work on the night picture desk one day a week.

I especially like shooting assignments that have the potential for multimedia. I've been shooting photojournalistic-style panoramics since early 2004. In addition to panoramic images, I also do object movies, audio and time-lapse video, as well as conventional video.

I have recently started publishing a blog that aims to help other newspaper photographers in the US learn more about photojournalistic panoramas. You may find it here: The Panoramist.

I welcome your responses, advice and criticism of this work, and the work of mine you see on the Charlotte Observer website and my website. Thanks for taking the time to look!
