About Me

Hi! My name is Sean. I am a photographer based out of Troy, New York. I started out in photography in 2014 as a photo-editor for my college newspaper. After graduating, I wanted to pursue my own creative outlet for photography outside of full-time work as a staff photographer for the NYS Assembly. I started shooting weddings around the capital region and taking on portrait commissions, and am now looking to take on higher end creative/editorial work.

My style is bold, striking imagery that evokes a sense of simple, modern timelessness and emotion. With my clients and projects, I am always looking for fun and expressive ways to make photos that speak. My shooting style is largely editorial, with a focus on telling stories through unique perspectives, lighting, and composition. My editing style has been developed from countless hours of shooting + tweaking sliders in LightRoom (no filters !!)

Above all, I love people, and the earth, and telling stories about people and the earth. My goal is to create deeply impactful images that speak for themselves and inspire.
