Nature’s visual harvest

There’s so much color going on here at the moment with all the flowers blooming, so I’ve been getting deep amongst it. Here’s a pretty decent trio of plumeria that I photographed just last week… “plumeria Trio” 18 x 60 inch canvas gallery wrap. art enquiries to contact@seandavey.com


Here’s a cool little interview that Cohabitaire.com just ran with me

Sean Davey featuring on Cohabitaire.com

Folks, I had the website; Cohabitaire.com contact me recently, looking to interview me about my environmental photography. I like their by-line. It reads: “Urban life inspired by nature” Now that is cool. Check out my interview and a small portfolio of my images here: Cohabitaire.com interviews Sean Davey


Some pictures from this morning, on the north shore

Folks, it’s been very, very quiet for surfing the north shore lately. Really quiet, not to mention that the past couple of weeks have produced some rainy and windy weather as well. So when I woke this morning and could see that everything was settled down, with hardly any wind about, that was enough to […]


Golden Plenty – today’s Hawaii’an sunset of the day

Supping at Rockies, on the north shore - Golden Plenty

SUP (Stand Up Paddle) surfing has really been embraced worldwide, but probably no more so than right here in Hawaii. Pretty much, any day of the week, you can cruise down to the beach here on the north shore and see a couple of folks SUPping it while the sun go’s down. At the end […]


Hawaiian Sunset of the day – Rockpile VOG

surfers during sunset north shore, Oahu, Hawaii

Todays Hawaiian sunset features a bunch of surfers waiting for the last few waves of the day at Rockpile, on the north shore. When the trade winds fade away, we get a build up of Volcanic Ash, referred to locally at VOG, but it produces some awesome sunsets, much like what you often find in […]


Lone wave at Ehukai for today’s sunset image.

Twilight Peak

Folks, we’ve had a bit of rain move in and although it stayed quite sunny on this part of the island for most of the day, It started to rain just before sunset, so I didn’t manage to get a shot today. Not to worry though, I only have a million other Hawaii’an sunsets already […]


That’s Golden!

Bruce Irons - Golden air

Another epic surf picture from past Hawaiian surf seasons, this one is of Bruce Irons boosting a massive aerial maneuver at Backdoor. Although as a surf photographer, I contribute to it, I’ve always been somewhat repelled by the rampant commercialism of surfing and so have always given preference to the light over the surfer as […]


Todays Hawaiian sunset at Turtle Bay 10 10 10

Rockpile Beach on Oct 7th 2010

This is the 4th day in a row that I’ve been photographing Hawaiian sunsets and I expect to keep doing this each day for the forseeable future. Todays Hawaiian sunset comes from Turtle Bay, on the north shore of Oahu. I didn’t post the last 3 sunsets here on my site, so I’m presenting them […]


north shore, readying for the influx

Luke Stedman weaving amongst the photog's at Kodak Reef

Folks, I was asked by an over seas magazine editor just yesterday for an image of many photographers, jostling for the same image and boy, did I have one. I zeroed straight in on an absolute gem of TJ Barron about to get barreled at Kodak Reef. This picture is actually Luke Stedman from the […]


Wave of the day – “liquid energy”

Print name - "Liquid energy"

Folks today’s wave of the day is a rare view of an ocean wave from both above the water line and below the waterline at the same time. I particularly love the bubbles floating to the surface. Gives it a nice art look. Enjoy!


Jon Florence carving up the Sunset Bowl

Jon Florence carving it up at Sunset Bowl, this week.

Folks, this is Jon Florence , formerly known as Jon Jon Florence. I captured him a few days back, laying down this huge powerful carve at Sunset beach. It’s pretty obvious that he’s picked up some carveing skills from working with Pancho and Myles over at Progressive Surfing There’s been a fairly decent run of […]


Flynn rips the bags out of Rockies while wearing a Davey Tee :)

I gave Flynn Novak a couple of The Davey Visions Tees from Welshy over in England. Flynn went straight out to Rocky Point and ripped the place apart with an inspired display of high tech surfing. If my T-shirts really could make people surf like this, I’d sell a million of ’em Here’s a handful […]


A few options amongst the big waves on the north shore

Donnie Darnell was getting barreled every wave at Sunset yesterday

Still plenty of swell around folks. They were saying that it would be a lot bigger yesterday and it definitely did pick up a couple of notches, however the brunt of the swell occurred overnight and so it was on the way down. It turned out to be a matter of finding a spot that […]


Winter swells finally here on the north shore

Rockpile just before sunset.

Folks, we’ve had waves here on the north shore for just over a week now, but yesterday it kicked up a notch with 10 foot set waves. I ended up shooting Rockpile both in the morning and again in the afternoon. It always seems that best wavesat the Rockpile can always be found early season. […]


Pipeline Lagoon pumping

South Swell at Pipeline beach

I was up early this morning to check out the new pulse of swell. There was hardly anyone anywhere. A few random tourists and the usual but where were all the surfers?… It didn’t really bother me though, I just slipped into Daveys Wavey Gravy mode and took pictures of the waves in the lagoon. […]


New Triptych canvas’s now available

Folks, I’ve had a lot of people asking me about Triptych prints recently. For those of you who have never heard of these, a triptych is one image printed onto 3 canvas panels. Those panels are then displayed together to show the whole picture. They are a little different to the usual way of showing […]


More Tasmanian point-break goodness

Sterls, pausing to take in the beauty of a classic Tassy point break.

Been a lot of banter going back and forth these past few days about our beloved Tasmanian point breaks. We actually have quite a few of ’em around the place, up and down the coasts and particularly on bigger swells, a lot of ’em just kind of pop up, waiting for someone to come along […]


Dream session in Tasmania

southern comfort, somewhere in Tasmania

Folks, I posted an image on my Facebook page yesterday that frankly generated a little bit of excitement as well as a healthy dose of skepticism due to the fact that the waves looked so perfect and nobody was surfing in the picture. Here, I present you a picture from the following day and everybody […]


Tube Flare – latest print in the Davey collection

Print name - Tube Flare

Folks, entitled “Tube Flare”, this image is the latest addition to my 20 year collection of wave images, known as the OCEANS collection. Enjoy


Parafina Magazine No 29

Parafina Magazine No 29 (storm front over Teahupoo)

Folks, I just checked out the latest issue of Parafina Magazine from brazil, this one focusing quite intensely on Tahiti in the south Pacific. I scored the cover as well as 22 double page spreads with my Tahiti images. Check it out here. .


Haleiwa Beach Park, this morning

My fellow Tasmanian friend Joni Lee James is currently visiting the north shore, here in Hawaii and tagged along on one of my early morning photo shoots, this morning. We started by checking Sunset beach, then on to Rocky Point, but no inspiration awaited here either, on to Log Cabin, nup!… Then Waimea had a […]


Nice conditions continue on the north shore, despite the lack of surf

Under water view of a Hawaiian sea turtle this morning.

I went for a bit of a swim at Waimea this morning, to scope it out. Usually round this time of year, the place is teeming with massive shoals of bait-fish, numbering in their tens of thousands if not more. Today however, it was pretty clear that this won’t happen for probably another month or […]


Ariel view of OFF THE WALL, on the north shore

Off The Wall, ariel view, north shore

Aloha from the north shore of Oahu, where the conditions are pretty much like this picture, right here. It’s warm and sunny and not so many people around right now. For anyone vacationing here right now, it would be heaven-sent. The surf season here on the north shore doesn’t really properly get underway again for […]


Surfing towards the light

Sunrise surfing at Rocky Point.

It’s round this time of the year ( August ) that the seasons start to change and we see hints of the coming north shore swell season. This image which I entitled Towards the light was taken during a small mid year bump of swell at Rocky lefts. As you can see the sun is […]
