When you shoot, you need to think that you don’t have thousands of shots in stock but instead strive to make every shot look as if you are painting each time.

Thanks to his education in architecture and especially to his academic study of drawing, Sean has mastered lighting to the fullest. On top of that, practice drawing skeletons and meticulous study of anatomical models has given Sean an understanding of the most important thing when shooting portraits: composition.

Looking at Sean’s photos and comparing them with others, one can see the subtle and genuine work of the master.

Nowadays, many photographers prefer practicing weird poses without considering how a person looks in a photo. With a digital camera, you have countless shots. That’s why photographers shoot everything carelessly. My brain is sharpened to take a perfect photo once, as if every shot is the last one.

Any photo is a pale copy of reality. Even if you successfully captured a mind-blowing sunset, it still is not comparable to what you saw with your eyes. Therefore, I believe that the task of post-processing is to recover the scene as it actually looked.
