Sean Walmsley

I have been a photographer since I was a child, growing up in England. I started with a Box Brownie camera, learned how to develop film and print black-and-white pictures while in high school, got into semi-professional photography as an undergraduate at Trinity College, Dublin (Ireland) and have been a keen amateur photographer ever since. Since retiring from a career as a university professor in the School of Education at SUNY-Albany, I have devoted more time to photography, and have started entering art competitions. While my photography embodies the early tradition of photography, which is to photograph beautiful things – especially in nature – it is also to capture unexpected details that surprise, resonate, or encourage the viewer to ponder.
