Sean Conley is an award winning Director of Photography in Portland, Oregon. His work has been screened in North America, Europe and South Korea. Sean’s career as a cinematographer has encompassed narrative and documentary features, shorts, episodic television, commercials and music videos. He is a member of the OMPA, the Freelancers Union and on the Board of the Couch Collective. Sean loves collaborating with Directors to visually tell meaningful stories.

He’s worked with Netflix, A24, Showtime, Nike, Adidas, Fender, Self, CNBC, Discovery Channel, TRVL Channel, ESPN, as well as Directors Lance Bangs, Dawn Jones Redstone, Alicia J. Rose, Katie O’Grady and Rachel Annette Helson among others.

In high school Sean picked up his Dad’s 35mm film camera and fell in love with photography and the ability to capture a moment in time. This informed his transition into cinematography where he shot skate videos and eventually short films, music videos, commercials and narrative & documentary features–experience that has given him knowledge in a wide variety of shooting conditions.

Sean taught Advanced Camera and Filmmaking Workshops at Portland Community Media for 3 years and has committed to learning what it means to be an ally for underrepresented voices in the industry. This is reflected in the Directors he collaborates with and the crew that he hires.

Sean grew up in Nashville, Tennessee and after living abroad in Seoul, South Korea, settled in Portland, Oregon to continue his career as a Cinematographer. 

His series Night Vibes explores the emptiness of public spaces when the lights are still on but everyone has gone home.
