Sean DuFrene, photographer

Award winning Photographer with over 12 years experience. My images are bold, quirky and conceptual.
Through collaboration and creative direction, I help clients visually communicate their brands. 

The foundation of my experience is Photojournalism. The style of my images draw from time spent as a Photojournalist in San Diego, coupled with time spent studying at San Francisco’s Academy of Art University, which earned me a Master of Fine Art degree.
