About

Sean Stevens is an internationally published and award-winning photographer who recently moved to Toronto after living in Texas for nearly 10 years.  You might also see me referred to by my nickname ‘HotShot’, which comes from my dedication of capturing Emergency Scene images.

Some of my work, along with my writing, has appeared in and on the front covers of national firefighting magazines, sailing magazines, and various local newspapers. You may have seen my work exhibited at a Firefighters’ Museum. And most recently some of my images were picked by MAXIM magazine to appear in their features ‘Girls Who Love the NFL’ and ‘Girls of Spring Break’. In 1996, one of my fire scene photos was awarded the Canadian Press Photo of the Month Award, making it one of the twelve best Photos of the Year.

And, when I’m not creating wonderful photographs, I also conduct workshops and private one-on-one training for other photographers who wish to improve their skills.

Besides being a photographer, I grew up on the ocean, learning to sail at the knee of my dad and moving onto a decorated Naval career in the 80’s (awarded the Chief of Defense Staff Commendation for rescuing a fellow shipmate who had fallen overboard), to being a certified International Fisheries Observer in the 90’s, protecting our oceans from overfishing by living and working aboard Russian, Cuban, and Japanese factory-freezer trawlers in the North Atlantic.

Before retiring my sea legs, I was also an instructor at the NS Sea School, teaching at-risk youths adventure-sailing and survival skills in open boats on the open sea. I became a Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer in 1997, and later a Microsoft Certified Trainer. Since then, I’ve worked as a Network Engineer/Administrator and Service Desk Manager for medium to enterprise-sized businesses, as well as running my own training and consulting business and is ITIL Practitioner level certified
