Shawn Talbot

For over twenty years Shawn has been going to extremes to capture the perfect shot and has won numerous international advertising awards. He has been recognized for his exceptional work by National Geographic, the Globe and Mail, the Smithsonian Institute and Macleans Magazine. He is currently featured in a documentary series about his work entitled 1 Stop Closer.

Shawn chose to pursue eclectic photography and lighting training from numerous instructors at several universities across Canada; this is evidenced by the broad range of styles and techniques seen in his work.

Shawn spent a number of years working as a director of photography in Vancouver on commercials, music videos and feature films while also freelancing as an advertising photographer. It was here that Shawn really honed his skills and talent for lighting.

Not only is Shawn an experienced drone pilot, capturing world-class photographs and video from a bird’s eye perspective, he is also a pilot of light aircraft. This marriage of piloting skills, accompanied by the composition skills of an experienced photographer, make for the perfect combination when capturing aerial photographs and video.

Shawn’s broad range of experience with numerous subjects shot in different countries around the world always brings a fresh perspective to each assignment (Lightjet prints of Shawn’s travel images can be viewed here).

Shawn’s passion for his work and easy-going, friendly personality has turned many clients into lifelong business partners and friends.
