Sean Openshaw

My name is Sean Openshaw and I'm an editorial, portrait, sports and event photographer living in Flagstaff, Arizona.

Thank you Dana and Lynda for contacting me about photographing Prime Time Athletics team photos. Some of my all-time favorite types of portraits to take are sports photos.

I’ve been photographing team photos for years and years and it never gets old. Actually, just the opposite it true.

The worse part is that in order to get hundreds of players through in one day, I can only spend a few minutes with each athlete and I sometimes have to hire other photographers to help. If I had my way, I’d be able to spend an hour with each player instead of minutes.

But regardless of the time limitations, actually, BECAUSE of the time limitations, I try to over-compensate with multiple poses, dramatic lighting and energy so that every player feels more important than the before and after them. Because they are!
