“Sean and his team were an absolute joy to work with. Their professional attitude combined with their acute attention to detail and uncanny storytelling abilities made for an astonishing set of finished photographs. I'd recommend them to anyone looking to bring a project to life, as they'll be sure to exceed expectations well beyond the lens.”
- ART SIMMONS, Sr. Art Director, Audacity Health
“Sean is an exemplary pro. He takes his craft incredibly seriously and the results speak for themselves. While he will certainly plan a shoot, Sean also has the unique ability to direct a shoot onsite and get wonderfully unexpected results that are difficult if not impossible to plan for.”
- JORDAN STARK, Co-Founder & Creative Director, Product Etc
“I would recommend Sean (and have many times) to anyone looking for exceptional photo and video awesomeness. He’s my go-to if he’s available. He’s really easy to work with and his work simply surpasses expectations. Book him if you can.”
- AARON GROSSMAN, Creative Director, Green Flash Brewing Company
“I've worked with Sean on three separate projects for my own business and for my clients' businesses. He has an Eagle Scout work ethic and a MacGuyver-like ability to figure out how to make the shot work no matter what. Good person on top of being a talent behind the lens. Recommended.”
- JOE NAFZIGER, Associate Creative Director, i.d.e.a.
“I’ve worked with Sean numerous times for both video and photo work, and he’s as good as it gets. Hands down the best cinematographer in the San Diego area and a blast to work with. Would recommend him every day of the week and twice on Sunday.”
