Sydney graduated from Norwich University of the Arts with a BA hons in photography.

Sean Smiles: Photographer

Sean specialises in ecommerce, commercial and advertising photography. With a career that spans analogue cameras in the late 1980s to today’s digital scene, he still practises principles from the early days and believes that if an image is taken correctly with the camera first off, it will save lots of time in post-production. His 360 spin and multi-row 3D imagery adventure with SpinMe has seen him shoot fashion models, jewellery, cycle wear and an F2 race car. In his quest for the perfect 360 image, Sean trains photographers and sets up studios around the world.
