About Me

Hi! My name is Sean. I am a photographer based out of upstate New York.

My photography journey started in 2014, taking photos for my college's newspaper. I loved capturing moments in time, and people seemed to like the product. It wasn't long before I was managing the newspaper's photo team, and taking on jobs for the local news outlet as well. After graduating, I pursued photography at every turn, from politics in the NYS Assembly Chambers, to weddings, portraiture, and fine art photography for clients around the state. 

Today, my artistic style is bold, striking, and timeless. With my client projects, I am always looking for fun and expressive ways to make photos that speak for themselves, with candid emotion and simple, modern composition. My shooting style is largely editorial, with a focus on telling stories through unique perspectives, lighting, and subject matter. My editing style has been developed from countless hours of tweaking sliders in LightRoom, and all of my images are painstakingly edited from scratch.

Above all, I love people, and the earth, and telling stories about people and the earth. Please don't hesitate to reach out from the "connect" tab, and I look forward to chatting with you about your photographic needs!
