About Me

Hi! My name is Sean Russell. I am a photographer based out of Troy, New York. I started out in photography in 2013, shooting assignments for my college newspaper. By 2014, I was a photo editor for the school paper, freelancing for campus organizations, and interning as a multimedia reporter for the local news outlet. Now, as a full-time photographer for the NYS Assembly and portrait/wedding freelancer, I am constantly challenging myself to find new ways to tell stories through images. My style is heavily editorial, with a concentration on conveying emotion through lighting and composition.

I try to embrace the diversity of life through my photography by working with a variety subject matter, from people and politics, to landscape and architecture. Regardless of what I'm shooting, my goal is creating striking, inspiring, and timeless images for my clients. Through telling important stories, I aim to highlight the natural beauty of people and places.
