Welcome to the website of Sean Chinn (@greatwhitesean). A place for my travel stories, photography and trips I hope you can join me on.
For years while growing up my travel consisted of your usual European holidays popular with British holidaymakers. Don’t get me wrong they hold great memories for me but I felt something was missing. It wasn’t until a trip to Cancun, Mexico in 2008 at the age of 22 that I realised what a big world it was and it needed exploring. Since then I have been fortunate enough to travel to many countries and experience the adventures these countries offer. Some adventures have been holidays ranging from 1 to 3 weeks, while I have also had the opportunity on 2 separate occasions to spend 3 months travelling between a number of truly amazing countries. I am extremely happy to share these moments with you through my website and social media. I am also looking forward to sharing many new adventures with you as they happen. I hope you will enjoy my tales of adventure and my supporting photos allowing you to get an incite into the wonderful world of travel and helping you with any plans you may also have.
I have had no particular background in photography apart from the usual point and shoot in Auto while documenting my travels. I decided in 2013 after a trip to Indonesia and particularly after some eventful scuba diving that it was time to develop my photography to really capture the beauty of our planet and share with the world. My main interest in photography is nature and wildlife but I will always try and expand my travel photography to show all aspects of the world. Being a keen scuba diver and underwater photographer you will find a wide range of ocean and sea-life photography and stories. This you could say is my forte and my underwater photos and experiences are those I am most proud of.
As my photography has developed over the years I have been lucky enough to be recognised in international competitions winning awards or being highly commended in prestigious events throughout the underwater photography world. I have recently started to work with scubaverse.com as a contributor and you will find links to my articles and blogs with them on the published section of my website.
I hope you enjoy my stories and photography and if you would like to buy prints or work with me on blogs, travel or articles then please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Happy Travels!!
