Shawn is skilled in the art of fashion photography & videography. *The ideas for my work come to me long before I actually click the camera. I draw inspiration from many things around me including music, nature, literature and conversations with people. I also treasure inspiration from daydreams in which my perceptions take on a life of their own and feed my imagination. This cosmic world is built on my dispositions, thoughts and emotions which are reflected in my captured photographs. My images can be everything and anything ,except normal - with the exception to the latter only applying when I’m shooting a fashion show, doing a runway shoot or shooting/directing a commercial. It is, however, not my intention to show reality, I prefer to capture the realm of the unreal, its dispositions and commands. I believe that my choice to become a photographer was a natural and necessary one *.
