Bradley O'Connor is the owner of ÓConċhobhair Productions, LLC.
At the age of 6, Bradley started engineering concert recordings along side his father. This piqued his interest in audio and from there began the long pursuit to his inevitable career.
A few days after graduating from High School in a small Connecticut town, Bradley interviewed and was then employed by the Entertainment Sports Programming Network (ESPN). Spending three years on staff, Bradley trained as a Video/Shading operator and soon became the "go-to" operator for regular and specialty broadcasts of SportsCenter and other ESPN studio shows. He also took the time to learn and operate Jib and Steadicam. In August, 2007, Bradley decided to return to college to obtain a degree, and returned to Freelancing.
At the same time he was trying to acclimate himself with his new college surroundings, Bradley returned to the freelance market working as a runner and utility while trying to break back into DP work. Shortly after he began consulting for the University of Connecticut student television station, "UCTV" and began working with the Media Services Department of Eastern Connecticut State University. This provided him the opportunity to return to shooting and to clench what he was looking for. From there, Bradley's client base began to swell very quickly as he made his valiant comeback to the EFP/EJ/ENG market. Since establishing ÓConċhobhair Productions, Bradley has worked all over the continental United States providing freelance DP, EJ, EFP, and ENG services.
Bradley has been honored by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences with four Emmys and a total of 39 nominations and 7 wins.
ÓConċhobhair Productions, LLC. was established in 2007.
The word "ÓConċhobhair" is Gaelic for "O'Connor".
Pronounced, "O-Con-shuh-bar", the name was inspired by the family crest that also became the focal point of the company logo.
Ryan O'Connor is the face of ÓConċhobhair Productions, LLC.
Ryan has nearly two decades of experience working as a journalist, whether it be in front of the camera, behind the camera, or behind the microphone.
It was in Autumn of 2002 that Ryan received the opportunity to intern on the Morning Show at WINY 1350AM in Putnam, Conn., and it was in this role that the owner of the radio station noticed that Ryan could excel at more than just answering the phone and getting coffee. He was brought on the payroll in the Winter of 2002 as a News Stringer and Reporter. He also became a producer for the station, operating the board on both local broadcasts as well as national sports programs. After the News Director left in 2005, Ryan had proven his ability to manage his co-workers, taking over the morning news reports and acting as the interim News Director while one was located.
Ryan went on from WINY to WFSB TV3 in Rocky Hill, Conn. where he worked the Assignment Desk while still a student at the University of Connecticut. Upon graduating with a degree in Journalism with a focus in Broadcast Journalism, Ryan found a job in Wincester, VA as a television reporter for the ABC affiliate. His coverage of a missing woman in Barryville, VA that turned into the hunt for her ex-boyfriend after her body was discovered garnered national attention for his reporting. Ryan is also an award-winning journalist for his exposé on synthetic turf fields.
Ryan joined Bradley, his brother, as a reporter/producer/talent in 2014. In working with ÓConċhobhair Productions, LLC., Ryan has had the opportunity to work camera as well as produce and direct live sporting events at Quinnipiac University. Many of Ryan's news reports since 2014 have been reviewed by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences including a series of pieces from the Star Trek Set Tour in Ticonderoga, NY, which were freelanced to the local FOX and ABC Affiliate.
ÓConċhobhair Productions, LLC. also handles the radio and online video spots for Grill 37, which Ryan voices.
