If you’ve seen many photos of waves, chances are high you’ve seen a Sean Davey photograph. Sean was inspired to pick up a camera by the dynamic Ocean and stunning landscapes of Tasmania. In Sydney, Australia, he photographed world-class surf talent, making a name for himself with attention to detail and artistic composition. Sean then began traveling around the world with frequent stops on the North Shore of Oahu. There, he met his wife and found the ultimate combo of heavy waves and talented surfers riding them. Sean still travels but spends the winter on the North Shore, capturing the world’s best surfers in the world’s most famous waves…sometimes without a board.

From SeanDavey.com:
“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.”
