Sean is a Texas-based nature and conservation photographer. Sean tries to create images that are simple, graphic, evocative, surreal and that in some way evoke a reaction, provoke an emotion, or tell a story. While his photographic subjects are widely varied, he is repeatedly drawn to nature and wildlife and the impact of man on both. 

Sean’s work has been published in a wide variety of publications and his fine-art prints are found in private and corporate art collections and  large-scale installations across the country, including entire hospitals and banks, as well as museums and convention centers.

He has won numerous regional and national photo contests, including the Wildlife in Focus Contest (twice), Texas Tech University’s High and Dry Contest, and PhotoMedia’s World in Focus photo contest. His career has been featured in Professional Photographer Magazine and CBS News recently named Sean one of the 10 emerging artists in the Dallas area. Sean received the Rising Star Photographer Award at the Fotofusion International Photography Festival and his career has been featured in Professional Photographer Magazine and other publications. The Bravo Network has featured his artwork on several home redesign shows.

Sean is proud to be a past president and current board member of the North American Nature Photography Association.

He is currently working on projects documenting the Great Trinity Forest near his home in Dallas, and the endangered Backland Prairie. You can see more of his images at www.seanfitzgerald.com.
