Sunset Surfers

From the iconic Shadowland collection, this is Sunset Surfers. An image which I photographed at Sunset Beach in Hawaii of two surfers. The dogs in the picture were just a happy coincidence. I was shooting this image with a 600mm lens and a 2 x converter. This helped to make the sun appear much bigger […]


Waikaloa Mana 1-3 ratio canvas wrap

This art piece is titled Waikaloa Mana I photographed this image purely out of serendipity, you could say. I was actually setting up a completely different image when I noticed out of the corner of my eye, the waves crashing up against the black lava rock and I knew I was onto something. Just as […]

Waikaloa Mana – 1-3 ratio canvas wrap

This art piece is titled Waikaloa Mana I photographed it on the big Island of Hawaii last year. The thing was that I was actually trying to shoot a different image when I literally stumbled upon these waves, crashing across the black lava rock shoreline and right when I did find this gem of a […]


My canvas tribute to the north shore

I’ve been living here on the world famous north shore  of Oahu now for almost 17 years.  I remember when I first moved here.  I had to find a house to rent when I first arrived and was amazed to pick up the top floor of a sick beach house, right at Pipe with the best […]


Use the light as your paint source

I’ve spent more than 20 years chasing perfect full sunlight, to shoot for surfing magazines, all over the globe. I’ve personally always had a real taste for the visually different, but for a long time there, all the magazines wanted to see was tight action in perfect bright sunlight, showing off all the sponsor logos […]


Dreamy – Island Hideaway, in the Maldive Islands

I just spent a few days photographing at Island Hideaway resort in the Maldive islands and was simply struck by the place’s natural beauty and the friendly vibe of the place. I do believe that it’s just about the best resort, I’ve ever stayed at. The staff were so helpful there too. A really lovely […]


One in a million moment

It was October the 13th in 2004 and I had just rocked up to the beach to see if I could get some decent surf shots against the setting sun at at Rocky point. There I was on the beach looking at this full on solar eclipse and then I noticed Flynn Novak out there […]


Long Beach tide lines

Long Beach sunset - by Sean Davey

Folks, California is a cool place to shoot pictures by the seaside. There doesn’t even need to be swell for there to be interesting photo opportunities, although it is always infinitely more interesting to those of us who pass our time in and around the surf. This is Long Beach, Los Angeles (just near Belmont […]


Ariel view of Flynn Novak at Pipeline

Flynn Novak perfectly pitted at Pipeline.

Folks, I just started a new gallery of Ariel images of Oahu. In other words, pictures of Oahu, taken from high above, usually in a helicopter, with my good mate Josh Lang. Todays image comes from a session at Pipeline with Flynn Novak positioned perfectly in the barrel. Enjoy! Sean Footnote: Folks, Flynn needs a […]


A golden North Shore outrigger sunset

Haleiwa Outriggers in the afternoon sunlight.

A familiar site with anyone who cruises around Haleiwa in the late afternoons, here on the north shore are the outriggers . Prety much most afternoons, they are there doing their thing with the sun setting in the background. Photographing it was a bit like the proverbial saying “shooting ducks in a barrel” Too easy.


Beautiful Catalina Island

"Avalon Sunset" photographed over beautiful Avalon, on Catalina Island.

We made a dash over to beautiful Catalina Island yesterday, to see if we could nab a couple of cool shots of Avalon . Wow, what a stunning place. A little bit like stepping into the French Riviera. The pace of life over there is quite relaxed and cars are replaced with golf carts, which […]

kickin it – island style

tea tree abounds on this island.

Been quite literally chilling out here the last couple of days after a cold front came through and changed the heat of summer in a matter of hours to the cold of winter. Such are the dramatic weather changes in this part of of the world. Here are some scenes from the island..


Epic short lived Pipe Session.

Late afternoon Pipe feb 26th 2010

Well folks, it sure has been a weird old week here on the north shore. It started out with the tsunami threat which most folks took quite seriously indeed. Ever since that day, it’s been howling trade winds at varying degrees of knots between 20 and 50. Pretty much victory at sea conditions, for the […]


Last wave of the day at Sunset


Davey’s wavey gravey train

I’ve been working really hard lately to get my site more up to date. More to the point, I’ve been adding more galleries. The latest to come on line, are my waves. I went through a collection of near 1,000 images from a 20 year time span, and culled it down to just under 300 […]


stellar moments on the north shore

Well, it was an odd situation. There I was standing on the beach at Off The Wall, sun’s just come up and there is just one guy out. No-one on the beach, other than one other (Chris Marcher) who was preparing to get out there himself. Stellar barrels are coming through, spitting, and no takers. […]


A south side sunset

Today, I’ll turn your attention away from the north shore and over to the south side of Oahu and in particular, a golden- red sunset over Ala Moana – Magic Island. Aloha Sean
