About the Artist

For over 22 years Award Winning Photographer Sean M. Dowie has photographed

Florida’s well-known and not so well known places, occasionally slipping away to some

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

photography.

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.”

Sean works as a professional freelance photographer for a variety of publications. His

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

exhibited in galleries, museums and corporate and private collections across the

country.

You can find Sean Dowie on the Art Show Circuit. When he is not traveling you can

view his work and meet the photographer himself at his own Windmill Gallery atop the

scenic Orange Lake Overlook on US 441 in McIntosh, Florida, where he resides.

Mr. Dowie is on the board of Directors of  Friends of the Lower Suwannee and Cedar

Keys Refuge; graduated from the Master Naturalist Program at the University of

Florida; and serves as Director of Photography & Chief Photographer for Florida’s

Eden, a non-profit  organization committed to preserving our natural environment and

building a sustainable future for North Florida.

In his own words;

"Enjoy and respect what you see, for it is ours to pass on to the generations yet

to come and our doings that will be remembered.”

Sean M. Dowie

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,"

"Chief Dan George-1899-1981"
