Hey there. I'm Shawn Biessel, an Alaska-based photographer specializing in black and white images of everything and anything. Currently, I'm primarily interested in capturing real people doing real things in their environment. My most recent project involved doing some street photography in LA in mid 2015. 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 in 2017.

Take a look around the galleries and feel free to drop a comment or two.
Thanks for looking. All the best.
