I attended KES for Grades 11 and 12 and was fortunate to play on the Senior Boys Hockey team, which was why I decided to attend KES. The school also offered International Baccalaureate courses which strengthened my application to my university of choice and KES offered a great Arts program which helped develop my musical talents. After graduating from KES, I completed my Engineering Degree at Western University and a Masters of Business Administration at Saint Mary's University. I then started my career in Renewable Energy at Suncor Energy in Calgary, Alberta. Today, I still live in Calgary with my wife and two little boys, and I still work at Suncor Energy in their New Renewable Technologies group. However, on a part- time basis, I am focused on building my photography business (www. seanleblanc photography.com).
About 4 years ago, I discovered a passion for photography and started a wedding photography business. Today, my photography business has grown beyond my wildest dreams. I have been fortunate to photograph weddings all over the world including Japan, Europe, Central America, the Caribbean, the United States and Canada. It was humbling to be named "One of the Top Wedding Photographers in the World for 2016" by Fearless Photographers. I absolutely love meeting new people and documenting their story. I found my way to owning a small business by trying new things and taking some risks. I have failed several times over the last few years, but I have also learned from those failures. My plan for the future is to expand my photography business. Over the next year, I will be hiring staff to help achieve our growth objectives. My advice is to find your passion and never work another day in your life. Always put your best work forward and go beyond the call of duty.Download your copy of The Arts Take Centre Stage at King’s-Edgehill School.
