Looking at Shawn's
photography, one first notices a depth about his work. Driven by a
passion for capturing the moment, Shawn's work has a very lively and
engaging feel to it.
Shawn's eye in photography was developed as a Graphic Designer,
which made the creative transition to photography very smooth. He
has since honed his technical skills to include several professional
certifications and worldwide travels.
Shawn is a hard working
photographer who treats his client’s body of work as though it were
his own. Amongst being a graphic artist and a professional
photographer, Shawn is a
seasoned instructor and creative project director.
He is extremely passionate about community, which is why he is
Co-Director and Advisor to a program called "The Suit Project", a ten week mentorship based program for young men
that are 18-22 years of age.
Shawn is also rolling out in September of 2009 his own
community and school based venture called "Picture This", a program where he inspires young people to consider Art &
Creativity through the eyes of the Photographic lens in motivational
seminars and rallies. You'll often hear Shawn say "RUN THAT!", which is his
energetic term for making life happen and he approaches photography
very much the same way.
Shawn's wealth of passion, creative background, and commitment to
service show not only in his work, but in his professionalism on the
job and his investment in community; able to perform at a very high
level, he is ready to create imagery that can take you to an
entirely new level.
