The Magical Wonderworld of Photographer Sean Davey

By on August 13, 2014

In a day and age where more and more people are taking photos (thanks, iPhone!), Tasmanian-born North Shore, Oahu local Sean Davey is taking his photography to the next level. Sean sells a lot of his work to high profile clients looking to style out their mega mansions or office suites. While he got his start taking photos for all the surf mags, he stopped that as soon as most of the modern mags started hiring younger guys who could do more work, for less money. Since he’s stopped shooting for surf magazines, he’s been shooting more of what he wants. He goes where he wants, when he wants and does whatever he pleases with the works of art he captures.

Here’s a little more about Sean Davey below …

Sean Davey first picked up a Kodak 126 Instamatic camera after school one afternoon in late October of 1977, to photograph a tiny perfect wave at his home beach. Little did he know at the time that it would develop (pardon the pun) into a lifelong obsession that would take Sean many, many places, in pursuit of his chosen craft of photography.

Originally from the island state of Tasmania in Australia, Sean has called Oahu’s north shore home now for well over a decade. For most who practice surf photography hawaii has always been the main drawcard during the northern winter months. The north shore surf attracts surfers from all over of the surfing world, which keeps Sean pretty busy. During the quieter summer months Sean regularly heads exploratory magazine trips to out if the way locations around the world and when he’s not doing that, you’ll often find him creating his sealife photography with the hawaii sea turtles and fish schools and underwater dolphin photos. Ocean photography has always been a dominant part of Sean’s work It’s part recreation, part work, he says, but always satisfying to do. Sean makes his imagery widely available to potential customers. Available in a wide size range of canvas prints, photo prints and T-Shirts. Check out his gallery on
