A photographer since age 16, Shayna Seaman took a sidetrack into graphic design in college, but soon returned to her first love. After educating herself further about the craft, she and former film student Johnny Bueno founded Pwnage Studios—an homage to Johnny's passion for video games. Today, they work as a team, aided by a few assistants as they capture images of newborns, children, and adults in green parks and other outdoor locations.
Using Canon 5D cameras with L-series lenses, Shayna and Johnny adopt a photojournalistic approach, snapping as many photos as they can in each session to capture loose, candid shots. Though they work in a defined style, they take time before shoots to get to know their subjects and accommodate any special requests. During post-shoot editing, they can render images in color or black and white, helping to achieve a dramatic effect or make photos more easily viewable by dogs.
