When Sean Hunter Brown came to us to build his website we were ecstatic. Sean is a well-known photographer (and amazing surfer) in Laguna Beach and truly gifted at what he does. He captures the beauty of the ocean in a single snap and creates amazing art that is awe-inspiring to look at.
Having such beautiful images to build a website around made it that much easier for us to create something that is clean, modern and truly shows the “awesome-ness” that is Sean Hunter Brown. We helped put together a responsive, CMS website and integrated a custom shopping cart so people around the country can experience his art on their walls. We were so enthralled by his work we decided to become and official SHB Gallery. Come on in and check out his work or even buy one off the wall!
ABOUT SEAN HUNTER BROWN PHOTOGRAPHY
Sean grew up with his footprints firmly etched in the sand 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. Sean has been drawn to the ocean since he was a toddler living in Mazatlan Mexico. Since then, Sean has been involved in many ocean activities including surfing, bodysurfing, kayaking, skimboarding, stand up paddling, and snorkeling.
Given his 30-year history as a surfer, Sean understands the pull of the ocean 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 break ashore 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 water and light. 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 an arborist, with emphasis on protecting native oak tree resources and educating both developers and homeowners of their value.
