camera a7 iii, a7iii

I have been shooting portraits for a long time, started with natural light and I have mostly been using flashes and natural light, sometimes a reflector. I have been working on purchasing gear all throughout my career as well as working full time. I have started with a canon model camera and switched to sony because of mobility and end result with editing, it's way more versatile. I have a few classes in photography under my belt but I am mostly self taught. I started real estate photography 2 years ago alongside matterport and I have lots of experience shooting interior and exteriors of beautiful homes throughout the bay area. I have my own gear and I know how to use it, I bracket well, expose well, and I always pay attention to angles and details.

Sean Muniz is an active individual who will do what it takes to get the shot. Sometimes he may be faced with tough situations such as small spaces or super bright scenarios and bringing that to life may seem impossible for some. Growing up Sean has always been experienced with cameras, but it was not until his junior year of HS until he realized he could capture and edit videos and photos with photoshop and premiere pro. After the time he developed editing and bringing photos and videos into something beautiful and bright for clients around his community. It wasnt until years later where he wanted to branch off into a market he was always passionate about. Music videos, real estate and corporate photography/videography, with a love for music and a fascination with architecture, being able to create both in video and photo format was an idea Sean fell in love with. Working with other photographers around Bay Area, he bounces ideas off people and asks questions to make sure he's always learning something new within the process.
