About Sean

Sean is a freelance photographer, based in Portland, OR whose true passion for photography started early in Elementary and High School. He followed with degrees in both Art and Art Education from the University of Iowa, focusing on photography and graphic design with additional emphases on sculpture and metal smithing. Sean’s professional career now ranges from teaching and graphic design while continuing his ongoing passion for photography. Recently, Sean began a series of photographs documenting his personal reflection of our great city, Chicago. Capturing scenes and architecture of what it truly feels like to be a Chicagoan living in the history of such a developing metropolitan and industrial “blue collar” town, he captures the real energy and raw beauty of Chicago in sometimes “not so typical” light. Sean has a very honest style, and where he takes thoughtful pause in places to grasp uncommon perspectives, we realize through his imagery, that we are experiencing the natural essence of what captivates us about these structures and locations. The photos featured here mainly reflect his love of classic (sometimes hidden) Chicago architecture and also vintage cars.
