My name is Gray O’Neal. I was born and raised in North Carolina, which is where I will always call home. Photography has been a passion of mine since I was 15 years old. I love and enjoy capturing moments and memories through my lens that will last a lifetime. I enjoy the energy that photography offers, and I always work to create images that go beyond just the surface. In addition to photography, I also enjoy playing golf, traveling to new places, boating, fishing, and spending time with my family. I am thankful that I have always been encouraged from an early age to pursue my natural creativity and start a career where I get to do what I love on a daily basis. Although I am based in Cary, I am also able to shoot in Durham, Chapel Hill, Raleigh, and the surrounding areas.
I have previously studied photography at the New York Institute of Photography, in addition to studying under Claudio Basso. I have shot for many agencies including Elite Model Management, Funny Faces New York, B&B Talent Atlanta, ABA Los Angeles, Directions USA, Marilyn’s, Carolina Talent, Maultsby Talent, Talent One, The Brock Agency, Actors and Entertainers, and KidzAct. In addition to shooting head shots and body shots, I also enjoy shooting family portraits, bridal portraits, weddings, engagement portraits, business photos, senior portraits, product photography, real estate photography, and architectural photography.
As a photographer, I strive to create images that people will cherish for a lifetime. I aspire to capture not only what you look like, but also who you are through a photograph. I work to produce high quality images that you are proud to show around. I hope that you will give me the opportunity to get to know you and allow me to capture some of your most memorable life moments.
