Combining his creative talents with his knowledge and love of nature, Sean is dedicated to capturing Gabons beauty, indigenous wildlife and Forests, particularly in its National parks and showcasing the world.
The best way to preserve a thing of beauty is to hold the attention of the viewer and encourage a feeling of wonder and nurture, It is like music for the eyes.

His work involves tight close-ups of animals in their natural environment to action shots of platforms, rigs and boats night or day, depending on what ever is asked of him.
One of seans idols is Sir David Attenbourough. He has inspired, captivated & motivated Sean as he was growing up and still does to this day. At the age of 97 his love for the natural world and effort he has put into protecting the environment is just astonishing.
"It seems to me that the natural world is the greatest source of excitement; the greatest source of visual beauty; the greatest source of intellectual interest. It is the greatest source of so much in life that makes life worth living."
