nearby Islands. Originally from the Midwest, Sean grew up in South Florida, mainly in
the Keys. From that time on Sean developed his need for Nature and saw the inherent
beauty & purpose within it. He spent his youth fishing and scuba diving and was often
found traveling the back roads of the Everglades, camera in hand, in search of
unknown places and hidden treasures. While attending the Art Institute of Ft.
Lauderdale to refine his photographic abilities Sean became intrigued with large format
In his own words;
“The detailed textures, the subtle changes of light from scene to scene that one
can reveal on Large Format has enabled me to show the Florida’s landscape in
all its glory.”

credits include Natures Best, Travel & Leisure, Audubon, Coastal Living, Travel Florida
highways, Florida Living and Outdoor Photographer, to name but a few. Sean’s work is

to come and our doings that will be remembered.”

My Heart Soars
"The beauty of the trees, the softness of the air,
The fragrance of the grass speaks to me.
The summit of the mountain, the thunder of the sky,
The rhythm of the sea, speaks to me.
The faintness of the stars, the freshness of the morning,
the dewdrop on the flower, speaks to me.
The strength of the fire, the taste of salmon, the trail of the sun,
and the life that never goes away, they speak to me
And my heart soars,"
