    "I worked with Sean from 2003 to 2007 in the UNU Media Studio and even then Sean's eye for the scene and attention to detail was in evidence. Not only was he then very modest about his photographic skills, I am sure that he is much the same today regarding his burgeoning success."

    Beard Radio says:

    "Motion ID is a Man of many talents, not least of which is Art Direction within the camera. While most wait for post-production, our man with the "blad" sees true to the heart of the image with homegrown grids and built in angles so his laser-vision has more time to capture the awe of the natural world and less time to sit behind the computer."

    "Pick a page, any page, in motionid's phtostream.Go there now and look at the amazing pictures you will find. Enjoy!

    [If you are still reading this, you don't do what you are told and are reading my blah blah blah about motionid's photos, In my opinion, you time is better spent immersing yourself in his photos.]

    motionid has mastered the art and science of shooting 'street'. He employs superb composition and camera-work to capture the essence and context of real life. Shot mostly in Tokyo, his images, of single-minded firemen, of crowded commuters, of bearded old men, of over-the-tp teenagers, bring you right onto the street and subways where you meet real Tokyo face-to-face.

    So, I will say it again. Go now. Look, learn and enjoy."
