Stories from the Field: Getting the Shot When the Subject Doesn’t Necessarily Want to Be Gotten
Sean Crane’s day job is as a creative director for New York’s largest advertising agency, but when he’s not convincing the world to buy things that they may or may not need, he’s out photographing wildlife. His travels have taken him to all seven continents where he has documented everything from the smallest of invertebrates to the largest of mammals. His photos have been published widely in all media, and he has won awards from the BBC, the Smithsonian and the National Geographic Society, among others.
Unlike the models used in his advertising campaigns, the world’s wild creatures aren’t always as accommodating when it comes to posing for the shot. In his presentation, Sean will share some of his favorite images from around the globe and the stories behind what it took to get the shot.
Sean and his wife Karen live in Brooklyn. To see more of his work, go to www.seancrane.com and sign up for his popular Photo of the Day blog.
