Documentary Style

Sean considers himself an image maker and documentary artist, not simply a photographer. He has made a conscious decision to take on a diverse range of commercial and personal commissions, undertaking a range of  work whilst ensuring consistency in style. Sean says There is nothing more gratifying than seizing the moment with your camera. I have a natural shooting style that does not force an image to be made. It is more reactive for me - unless, of course, I am working on commerical, studio-based photography where I am given the variable to interpret.

Sean is at the forefront of the movement to bring style, creativity and art to contemporary and commercial photography in the North East.
