Director of Photography
Easily distracted by shiny objects, Sean has been afflicted by a rare form of E.O.P, Enhanced Optical Perception, from a young age. Learning to cope with his hyper-sensitivity he discovered that by capturing these visions through photography he can manage his symptoms. As long as he keeps shooting he is able to function in society seemingly un-afflicted.
