Hi, I'm Sean Gallagher. I've lived both onstage and off for decades....I'm shot onstage for both The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and for The Daily Show, whether providing stills for guests - both celebrity as well as political and creatives - as well as documenting what life is like backstage at a television show. 

My work has been featured in: NY Times, Washington Post, LA Times, Variety, The Today Show, Good Morning America, Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair, Sunday Today with Willie Geist, CBS Sunday Morning, on billboard campaigns in L.A. and subway/bus advertising in NYC, at the Paley Center for Media (formerly Museum of TV and Radio), onstage during the Emmy awards ceremony, on the front of TDS Headquarters as well as other publications and uses too numerous to count.

For my personal work, I've completed a book about the history of my family as scenic carpenters along with their tool collections. I've been a working portrait photographer for decades, and work on images to help add character for wall spaces for interior decorators worldwide. As a hobby, I love to kayak, hike and bike - always while carrying my infrared camera.
