Please join us for an evening of sports photography with Sean Haffey, staff photographer at the San Diego Union Tribune.
Tuesday, January 25 · 7:00pm – 10:00pm – Crowne Plaza Hotel San Diego – Mission Valley
Sean has been with the San Diego Union-Tribune for the past 21 years. Sean worked as a Contract Photographer at the Los Angeles Times as well as the Times Advocate newspaper and the Blade Tribune newspaper, both in the North County of San Diego. Prior to beginning my newspaper career, I lived/worked in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
Sean’s career includes covering four Summer Olympics, 25 years of Chargers and Padres Seasons, multiple World Series and Superbowls, and most of the major stories that have happened in San Diego over the last 25 years including the large fires, storms. Sean has been shot at in conflict zones, documented both tragic and inspirational stories in the US and abroad but considers covering the Olympics to be his greatest accomplishment.
Sean has a BA in Political Science from the University of California at Santa Barbara where I graduated in 1986.
Sean is married and has a 3 year old son. He lives in Ocean Beach and enjoys surfing regularly as well as spending time in the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
