Evan Sherman is the owner of Seasick Productions, a full-service multimedia company that specializes in underwater imaging. Based out of Orange County, California, Seasick Productions provides on location and studio production services around the world. Evan’s first dive with a camera, he fell in love with underwater videography. His second dive with a camera, he flooded it. He was 19 and had already learned a critical lesson about life as a professional underwater cameraman: passion fuels the artist, tools allow the artist to be. Evan later received his B.A. in Film and Electronic Media from California State University Long Beach. Evan’s professional underwater credits include television networks, Fortune 500 companies and numerous entities within the dive industry.
In 2015 Evan released the film, Bali Close Up, which earned top honors at the World ShootOut Underwater Photo Grand Prix in Germany, Video of the Year at the ADEX Voice of the Ocean Competition in Singapore, and the Best of Show and Stan Waterman Legacy Award at the Turquoise Bay International Underwater Film Festival in Roatan. His subsequent film, The Not So Silent World, was equally recognized throughout the dive imaging community as it received Best in Show and the Stan Waterman Award at the Beneath the Sea International Imaging Competition, Best of Film Festival Award at the San Diego Undersea Film Exhibition, and first place at both the World ShootOut Underwater Photo Grand Prix in Germany and at the Turquoise Bay International Underwater Film Festival in Roatan.
He is a contributor for DivePhotoGuide and Wetpixel while also representing SEA&SEA Underwater Imaging and Kraken Sports as an ambassador for their products. Throughout the year Evan conducts dive expeditions and imaging workshops.
