Graham resides in Penngrove, CA and is the President of Seawood, Inc. Seawood continues to be a successful camera store in an era where “real” camera stores are becoming scarce. Graham has extensive experience as a working professional photographer and is a genuine photo enthusiast with a soft spot for vintage gear. His retail store in San Rafael, CA (formerly in San Anselmo, CA) has been continuously serving Marin County’s avid photographers since 1947. Graham also writes interesting articles on the company website about sometimes obscure and always very cool equipment.
