This blog is a collection of thoughts, recipes, musical selections, and photos by Sean McCormick.

Sean’s first camera was a No. 2 Brownie given to him at age five by his grandmother. This was a mistake as the film and processing costs resulting from his new obsession nearly drove her into bankruptcy over the next two years. Forty-one years later, Sean still owns his first camera along with a large collection of antique film cameras and 35mm SLRs.

He pursued other interests during his teenage and early adult years becoming a chef, computer technician, technical author, and technical trainer along the way, but the interest in image-making remained. The advent of digital photography turned the interest back into an obsession, and Sean thinks of little else besides looking through a viewfinder these days (as his wife will tell you).

Sean specializes in portrait, fine art, and landscape photography, and can be found wandering the Special Areas of Alberta, Canada. He is a graduate of the New York Institute of Photography. Digital Photography and Portrait Lighting, which Sean co-authored with Catherine Jamieson can be purchased from Amazon.

He is a NASP Certified BAI and is currently helping coach archery for the J. C. Charyk Hanna School Hawks Archery Club. In addition to this he enjoys doing Olympic style target archery. He does not own a compound bow or hunt, thank you.

Finally, he is a professional DJ and hobbyist broadcaster. You will find his mixes and shows appearing on here from time to time. Podcasting is another program he is hoping to get going in the school this coming fall. (Sep 2015 update: The program is now up and running and it’s called Radio Hanna.)

And… that’s it. For now.
