Roy Sewall

Roy enjoys working with novice and intermediate photographers alike and finds great pleasure helping them develop their eye and their photographic skills.
His interest in photography evolved from extensive travel in six continents during his youth. In 2001 he started his transition to full-time photographer following his rewarding 30+ year career working for several major technology corporations in the Washington, DC area.
Roy has published two photography books, Our Potomac, from Great Falls through Washington, D.C., in 2005 and Great Falls and Mather Gorge in 2009. These were inspired by his affection for hiking and bicycling along the river and the adjacent Chesapeake and Ohio (C&O) Canal. His books led to numerous speaking engagements and established him as one of the leading photographers of the Potomac River and C&O Canal.
He has been a guest on WETA’s TV program Great Views of Washington D.C., the lead photographer in the Best of D.C. 2009 publication, in feature articles in the D.C. and Virginia Where Guestbooks, the lead still-photographer in The Nature Conservancy’s 2011 video The Potomac Gorge, and is sought after in many well-known photo competitions for his judging skills.
