Hey there. I'm Shawn Biessel, an Alaska-based photographer specializing in black and white images.

Currently, I'm primarily interested in capturing real people doing real things in their environment. My most recent project involved doing some street shooting in Southeast Asia during the spring of 2014. This was my first real attempt at doing street photography. I think it was a success but I still have a lot to learn and a lot of confidence building to do. In the future, I hope to do some similar work in Alaska, though this is quite a bit more difficult. I would also like to incorporate some natural light portraiture into my work. I am considering graduate school in fine art photography sometime in the future.

Take a look around the galleries. I am currently transitioning to a more thematic way of presenting my work. Interested in a print? You can find purchasing information here.

Thanks for looking. All the best.
