Sean Pines is a london based photographer working in the both commercial and art markets. He was inspired to be a photographer by his grandfather at around the age of 10 and has been creating images ever since and worked professionally in the photographic industry for over 30 years.
Having left formal education at the age of 18 having secured a placement at the Polytechnic Central London Sean turned the offer down on the advice of several top fashion photographers of that time including Terence Donovan and Brian Duffy. They felt that his work was already superior to many college leavers and as such he had a 3 year start on them to hone his skills in the field.
