Shawn Levin was born into an artistic family of photographers, architects, entrepreneurs and graphic artists. He has lived in New York, California, Colorado and Florida. He currently resides in Maryland. Shawn is a professional photographer and the founder of a successful technology consulting firm. Shawn's photography work spans 5 continents and over 30 countries.

Shawn got a solid foundation for his photography by spending his youth learning directly from his father with much time spent in the dark room learning how to use light meters, flashes and cameras.
The influence of his parent's passion to share our world has evolved into his own distinctive style. Using both ambient and artificial light as well as an engaging and inquisitive personality, he creates captivating images earning him recognition around the world. His perspectives range from photojournalistic to composed, from edgy to conservative, yet maintains the timeless essence inherited from his family of the arts. He embraces his comprehensive understanding of technology which affords significantly greater range to location shooting and aids in the control of the image. He is published regularly in several publications as well as catalogs, advertisements and web sites.
