SEAN HUNTER BROWN
“”The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.” – Jacques Yves Cousteau
Sean grew up with his footprints firmly etched along the shoreline of Laguna Beach, California and he considers the blending of surf and art a natural extension of his love of the ocean and surfing.
He understands the pull of the ocean given his 30-year history as a surfer and translates that experience through the lens of his camera to capture the essence of a wave breaking wildly and freely against the iconic background of his hometown.
Sean has a deep and intuitive appreciation of the way waves and the ocean react with the shore and his photographs are a reflection of what he sees, clearly transformed as he documents the every day ordinary experience of surf into an extraordinary explosion of beauty and excitement. The result is an instant caught forever that evokes emotion and expresses the ever changing presence of a liquid environment he finds irresistible.
Sean’s passion for the environment is not only seen in his underwater and ocean wave photography. It’s also seen in the enthusiasm he brings to his work as a consulting arborist, with emphasis on protecting native oak tree resources in California.
