I often get asked “How do stay so optimistic in a highly competitive field?” And the answer is that I’m lucky to be surrounded by a lot of good people who are generous with their story telling. Sean Stephenson is one of those inspirational guys. He’s charming to a fault and hilariously blunt. You can get a sense of this in this video interview. I photographed him for his interview with NextShark last fall during his trip to Los Angeles. After our shoot I decided that I have no right to complain about life.
