Real Name of Seph Lawless ?
Recently, a past interview Seph Lawless did with Vice Magazine has resurfaced fueling rumors that Lawless, is in fact in jail or facing jail time, this is not true and my client Seph Lawless was never charged as the case was thrown out of court last year. It should be duly noted that many of the places Seph Lawless photographs currently are usually invites from property owners and even state officials allowing Seph to photograph these abandoned places. We do not condone trespassing of any kind for those of you inspired by Lawless’ work.
Recently, Lawless was even asked by the Federal Government to photograph a remote military location to properly document it before they demolish is in 2016. These contracts are carefully read by Lawless’ Lawyers Larry Zuckerman and Brian Daiker to insure not only safety buy the legality of both taking and sharing his photographs with the public.

Several people think his name was created for various reasons, but the fact is, it was created simply as a pen name as he became an author. There is no real attempt to hide his identity as he has been on several television national and global platforms over the years. He is seen below during his Vice interview.
