Sean Beale

 I am one of New Zealand’s leading outdoor and adventure photographers, with my work having appeared in numerous New Zealand and international publications.

Much of my life has been spent in New Zealand’s incredible environment after a childhood that was split between surfing in Piha and snowboarding in Queenstown.

I later spent five years snowboarding and rock climbing around the world, and in recent years have committed myself to trail running, including completing 100km races in New Zealand and overseas.

My photography is an extension of this passion for adventure and wild places, and has led me to cover iconic events such as GODZone, the Kepler Challenge, the Revenant, the Routeburn Classic, the Winter Games, and Queenstown’s Winter Festival.

I also work with some of New Zealand’s top athletes and adventurers to capture their journeys. My own experience in the outdoors and with extreme sports gives me a unique understanding when photographing these individuals and events, and allows me to get to places and get images nobody else will.

I live in Arrowtown, near Queenstown, and am available for commercial, adventure, environmental and event-based photography.
