Sean has spent a lifetime in close proximity to nature having been schooled in the Natal Midlands. His career path included agricultural studies and farm management, a professional hunting apprenticeship and eventually becoming a Game Ranger. Sean has guided at and managed some of Africa’s top private lodges and in the process attained his FGASA level 3 qualification as well as Trails Guide. He is also an accredited FGASA guides trainer and assessor. Sean also enjoys sculpting, with several fine pieces to his credit.

After years of experience living, working and travelling in deserts, deltas and the African bush, Sean became an accomplished photographer. He is now equally at home hanging from a helicopter shooting elephant and rhino captures, tracking the big five for photographic safaris, collaborating with magazine journalists for foreign publication commissions and submitting travel articles.
Natural Exposure has a vast travel and wildlife image library comprising thousands of images. From these Sean creates giant-size works for photographic exhibitions and interior decorators, lodges and hotels, plus smaller pictures and cards. Although his work concentrates mostly on classic wildlife photography, it incorporates a wide range of genres.

Travels to international destinations include Europe, U.K., Australia and New Zealand. Closer to home Sean has extensively travelled his homeland, South Africa and Southern African countries including Namibia, Botswana, Swaziland, Lesotho, Mozambique, Kenya, Tanzania and Zimbabwe.

Game Ranger in your Backpack

Sean has also recently co-authored and photographed the book Game Ranger in your Backpack.

"Game Ranger in your Backpack is not a conventional field guide in the sense that it will not provide reams of dreary detail on how to identify a particular plant or bird (although it does offer useful pointers of features to look out for). Rather, this book is intended to substitute the presence of a personal guide or ‘game ranger’ during visits to the Lowveld region of South Africa. It makes the practical, interpretative information on the most commonly encountered species in the Lowveld, accessible at a glance and eliminates the need to have several different books piled on the seat beside you. Game Ranger in your Backpack is a compact companion that not only offers interesting information on wildlife topics including mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians, invertebrates, trees, grasses, flowers and tracks but it is also visually interpretative, offering hundreds of images to assist with the deciphering of animal behaviour or the recognition of common species."-
