Sean Gallagher was born in 1973 on Long Island, New York. He grew up surrounded by birds, as his father built countless birdhouses in their backyard, all 50 states in the US, as well as in every continent!
A late bloomer to photography, Sean studied at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. After exhibiting around the city, he took a hiatus to establish himself behind-the-scenes in the entertainment industry. When he decided to return to photography, feathers were the perfect subjects for his small shooting space.
Sean currently resides in Brooklyn and works in lighting for Broadway, television and the movie industry, where he conceives and retouches his photos on some of the most famous stages and sets in the world.
