Michael ONeill Wedding Portrait Fine Art Photographer Long Island New York
Collectible Fine Art Photography Sailboat Northport NY
"Shimmer". Another dramatic fine art photograph created in my home town of Northport, NY. This beautiful scene was captured off the beach at Asharoken, a short, narrow stretch of land located between Northport Village proper and the community known as Eaton’s Neck, New York. Asharoken is bordered by the Long Island Sound on one side and Northport Bay on the other. This photo is actually a composite of two photographic images; the first being a long telephoto shot of the full moon, the second being the silhouette of the sailboat against the shimmering light on the water. "Shimmer" is offered for acquisition artist-direct and also through the fine art photography galleries that offer my works to collectors. Many copies of "Shimmer" have been sold through a local gallery on Main Street in the Incorporated Village of Northport, a quaint little town full of charming bistros, pubs, souvenir shops and art galleries. This collectible fine art image is one of a handful I’ve created right here in Northport. I have an entire series of images that were captured out on Eastern Long Island in the Hamptons and Montauk. My other collections are of various Long Island scenes outside of Northport and the South fork; and yet another series of images from places much further from my home. The editor of the local arts, fashion and lifestyle magazine publication, LI Pulse, named Michael ONeill in her list of "Long Island Artists You Need To Know". That was back in September of 2006 when editor, Nada Marjanovich stated "Land and waterscapes are like a déjá vu experience-only you’ve never seen these unfamiliar places look so good. Mother Nature meant for the world to look the way it does through Michael’s lens". Since that time my fine art photographic prints have been snatched up by savvy collectors. Some of my earlier limited editions are nearly sold out. If you are interested in acquiring a print made by this local, living artist act soon.
