Contact/About - SketchyUnicorns Photography

Hello everyone!

My name is Seth but many call me Sketch or Sketchy!


I was born and raised in California, then moved to Arizona around 2008 or so. I have many hobbies such as building and racing track cars, going offroad/dirt bike riding (Love Glamis) and much more. Often enjoy learning something new or if there is a custom piece I want to make or do, and don't have the funds to pay someone so... I just learn it myself.

Been into photography since 2010 on and off. Started by assisting a fellow photographer with their shoots. Eventually using a camera of my own to take a few shots when I had the opportunity and I was able to learn to a lot from that photographer. Eventually went a different way and started to shoot photos on my own with cars and models, then just models

One thing I really enjoy within photography is the opportunity of helping others get into modeling or photography. I love helping others out and watch them bloom as they continue to invest themselves into a wonderful hobby that allows many to speak on a term further than words. That to me is a great experience!


The name SketchyUnicorns comes from my drifting history. In the past, I used to drift. One of my cars I drove the most and was most known for, was called the S14Boss. I use to be called Sketch or Sketchy due to how I would fix it or get it to the events... Either driving on flat tires, zip tied arms, etc to make it to and from events. The car itself got the name of the Unicorn due to it still running to the very end. Never doing oil changes or any maintenance on the engine, the engine lost compression in two cylinders and most of the compression in the remaining ones. Equivalent to driving on one cylinder, yet I would still daily drive it and also take it to events. In the end, I put a large hole in the block and it caught fire. After being tow strapped home from an event, the engine blew. The car still ran on the remaining back piston with a gaping hole in the side of the block. It had no oil but it still ran. Was magical, hence being called the Unicorn. I had a shop for a little while and people would come by and hang out a lot to get stuff done. One day it just clicked putting my nickname and the cars name together which then became SketchyUnicorns. What started out as a car club (still is), turned into a company name, then turned into a few different things such as SketchyUnicorns Photography!

Arcadia and Chance

Currently I have two fur friends. One is Arcadia. A pitbull which has been with me for a few years. She was originally an abused pit when I picked her up. Cuts all over her, mostly her face as if she was beaten with something. Took me a year to get her comfortable with me, then about 6 months after that for her to be comfortable with others. Now she is an emotional support pup for myself but also the new family member which is Chance. He is also a pitbull who is very timid. Seemed to have been abused by the previous owner or owners. He is an amazing boy and even bigger of a doofus. If you see either of them, be sure to pet them and give some love. They absolutely love attention now!
