What’s in my Bag | Sean Byrne

Hello my name is Sean Byrne…

I live in Northamptonshire (UK) and I’m a photographer and social media influencer. I’ve always been a creative person but I felt I was wasting my creativity and I really needed to diversify. I get a great sense of achievement when I create something visually appealing – something that will catch people’s imagination.

Four years ago I joined an app called Instagram (IG). Instagram gave me an outlet to take images of where I was and share it with the world by using my iPhone. The feeling it gave me to have my photography being liked and in some cases loved, was unbelievable. It was like an addictive drug. The more I produced the more people liked and started following me, this gave me the urge to do more. So I started visiting many more places around the UK to vary my locations and keep me feeling inspired.

Landscapes seemed to be liked more than any other type of photography on IG, so this kept me shooting landscapes as I craved the attention many people were showing me. As my popularity and skill have improved I’ve managed to cement some great partnerships with many brands. I’m now sponsored by Cotswold Outdoor which is one of the UK’s leading recreational outdoor equipment stores. Perfect to help kit me out regarding clothing for those times I’m outdoors looking for that perfect shot. I also have sponsorship with Lucroit and Manfrotto. Lucroit supply me with filters and filter holders. This helps me create a look on my images that can be difficult to produce when post processing. And last but not least, Manfrotto, who are one of the world leaders in tripods and camera bags. They’ve recently helped kit me out for my adventure in Iceland.

All these opportunities have come about because of my passion for Instagram and photography. These opportunities might have happened without Instagram but it would of taken a lot longer to achieve, if at all. My passion for photography is mainly landscapes and tourism. It’s here I feel most comfortable. However I do strongly believe to shoot many things as techniques in other areas can only make you stronger and more confident in your ability to create great looking content, also the more you shoot the more you start to understand your cameras limits.

If people want to improve their photography I truly believe you should shoot what makes you happy. If it’s something your passionate about then it will come through your photography. Also be yourself. Treat people how you would like to be treated. Stay active on all social media and just keep taking pictures. But most importantly, enjoy it, have fun and stay focused on what you want to do – others will respect you for it.

I’m very optimistic at what the future holds. As cliché as it might sound, I enjoy photography as it captures moments that many people may miss. I see it as my job to show the world the beautiful place we live in and the way I see it.
