One of the interesting people that we met at the "Diversity In The New Media Era" presentation that was held in Toronto on July 16th was Sean Clarke. Sean is the CEO of Photoriot. Sean is Canadian born with Jamaican parents. He went to college in the United States on a basketball scholarship where he graduated with a Bachelor of Education. He started Photoriot about 1 ½ years ago. He regards himself as a freelance event photographer. Sean shares about various subjects including what was like getting a basketball scholarship to the United States, why he majored in education in college, the disappointment of not getting a teaching job in Toronto, the story of his love of photography, the process behind a photo shot and how he gets a photo shot, what it is like to be a young Black entrepreneur, meeting people and going to places he would have never imagined and how he is venturing into new areas. We also talk about the "Diversity In The New Media" event from July 16th.
