Connecting to the natural world

Museum quality, limited edition, fine art photographs

Created by an award winning environmental artist David Ellingsen, The Silent Sea offers contemporary fine art photographic collections themed around water; ocean, lake, river, and stream.

We work closely with private collectors, galleries, and often those involved in West Coast and Canadian design and interiors. 

All collectible prints are shipped direct to the collector or their framer.


Private and corporate collections, exhibitions, design, licensing, publishing, commissions, assignments, film and television, and more...below are some of the folks that have partnered with work from The Silent Sea or David's environmental projects. View a more complete list of our partners HERE.

Finest quality photographs

These museum quality prints are made on cotton rag paper with pigment inks.
When framing, natural materials are used as much all possible, typically wood, glass, and paper.

Encouraging connection

The Silent Sea collections are intended to encourage a sense of connection with place - the sea, the sky, the land, and all within - based on the belief that connection fosters care.


Respecting our natural surroundings, wherever we may be, is the foundation of The Silent Sea studio.

Our timeless, limited editions are created using the best materials and intended to be passed down to be enjoyed for generations to come.

Enduring prints transcend time, speaking softly in an age of mass production.
