Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I’m Sean Gold, and I’m many things, one of which is a photographer that calls Boston home. And I do love Boston, though it may not always seem like it since I’m always looking for my next opportunity to disappear on my next adventure.
Photography and traveling are hands down my favorite things to do. The only thing that’s better than traveling to photograph is when I’m photographing to travel.
I’ve lived in Boston my whole life, and before I was a photographer I was an illusionist. I find many types of photography inspiring, but I mainly focus on landscapes, cityscapes, travel images and portraits.
When did you realize your passion for photography?
As I mentioned that I used to be an illusionist, I decided to buy a camera to do my own promo images which were mostly self portraits, and that was my first rather serious camera I ever bought. I got a real lot of use out of it, which ultimately culminated to having the opportunity to photograph an architectural book for the city of Sunny Isles Beach in Miami, Florida. From that point on I focused solely on my work as a photographer.
What is your advice to aspiring photographers on Instagram?
Advice is tough. It’s subjective and I feel the best kind often means something a bit different to everyone that hears it. But with that said, I think it’s important to stay true to what you enjoy and have passion for, not to conform to what’s trendy at the moment. Don’t worry about the numbers game (likes, followers, etc). Keep improving your craft, keep doing and posting things your genuinely passionate about and the numbers will come. Whatever it is that you are doing or trying to accomplish, just make sure you follow your heart. Nobody can see your vision like you do.
