Hi. I'm Sean.

Thanks for stopping by! I'm a native Michigander (a Yooper, if you know what that is) who got his start professionally shooting mostly headshots in Los Angeles. Grateful to have grown and made a career out of my longtime passion. 

Currently off exploring the world, one country at a time. Ask me where I am today!

What's in a name?

Why 839Photography?

It's a question I get asked all the time, and the answer is really quite simple. I was 8 years old when I got my first camera, a Christmas gift from a customer on my paper route. I was 39 the first time I was paid to take pictures, a friend's wedding at LA's historic Chateau Marmont.

Let's create.

Need headshots? Want to show off your adorable family or the work you've been doing in the gym? Recently engaged or expecting a child and want to mark the occasion? Looking for some new artwork for your home or office, or to give as a gift?
