Below is feedback from educators and previous students with whom Sean has worked with in an educational capacity:

“Sean – thank you! I’ve been excitedly telling friends about my experience with your class. It was a very memorable, fun day for me – thanks again!” – Jennifer – Beijing Hutong Workshop

~ Barb Hipsman Springer – Associate Professor/News – Kent State University

“Thanks for the many conversations, edits and brainstorming sessions around photojournalism and the business. Your honest critique of my work and thoughtful questions continue to encourage.” – Coleen Jose – Mentorship Program 2015
