About MeThis is my 2nd profile. Please visit my main profilewww.modelmayhem.com/rseand
Thank you for taking the time to visit my portfolio. I'm Sean and I photograph people, not just models. Photography has always been a self-expressive art form for me, and I mainly used it as a tool to show others how I viewed them, as opposed to the self-depreciating ways in which they often viewed themselves. I find some element of beauty in everyone, which is why I say that I shoot people and not just models.
I first picked up a camera in 1981 and began experimenting with my sister, who was my original muse. The first photographer to influence me was Richard Avedon, but it wasn't until I saw a Versace ad in GQ magazine that I realized that this was something I really wanted to pursue. I consider myself a continual work in progress, so despite shooting off and on for over 25 years, I will always label myself a skilled amateur.
I primarily photograph males, but not exclusively. My favorite images are head shots, but my tastes are varied and include portrait, lifestyle, athletic, underwear, body scapes and nudes, implied, artistic or erotic. I consider the human form to be living art and enjoy capturing it in its natural glory, but I stress that it is NOT a requirement to shoot nudes to work with me. I make this distinction because my portfolio does contain nudity and the question has been asked.
I work well with models who are just starting out as well as those who are seasoned. The only requirements needed to work with me are an open mind, a willingness to push yourself past your comfort zone, the ability to perform in front of the camera so that there is life in the images, a positive attitude and a genuine love of being photographed. I do not have time for flakey models who make appointments that they don't keep, which I hear happens quite a bit. (Models remember...we photographers talk too and that is a sure way to earn a bad rep.)
I admire the work of many artists here on Mayhem, such as Ethan James, Justin Monroe, Zedneram, Dave Lewis, Mark Henderson, Julian Vankim, Rick Day, Luis Rafael, Carlos Arias, Tony Gibble, SOOAK, Mark Grantham, Scott Marrs, Greg Weiner, Justin Thai, Dylan Rosser, Haringman+, Joseph Smileuske, MURRAY!, Ron Reyes, Charles Archer, Anton Russ, Jorge Freire, FLYFOTO, Jay Plogman, Don Pollard, Hasson Harris, John Gress, StudioNero, John Hough, Henning von Berg, David Vance, Maya Guez, Tommie Adams, AJR, (I could go on and on) and I gain inspiration from each of them for their individual styles.
