Shawn Burgert


Photography and video production is not just what I do; it runs in my blood. My great-great-great grandfather traveled the mid-west in a covered wagon during the 1860’s. His six sons (Burgert Bros) were also professional photographers who made an impact in Florida’s history (1890’s-1960’s). My great-grandfather was a photographer for the Detroit News until his retirement in the 1970’s. Something he was known for saying was. “Let’s make a picture.” He would go on to say that – “Anyone can take a picture.” Now I am using modern technology to continue the family heritage of “making pictures.”

Video editing and video production have been passionate interests of mine and Sun Peak Productions is my creative outlet. I want my experience, creativity, and knowledge to inspire others through my work.

I am the father of two amazing kids, and a blessed husband. 10 years of experience in the hospitality and alcohol beverage industry allows me additional insights.

My marketing/business education and experience further contribute to satisfying every want/need of my clilents.



Captured Moments

An analogy for my photographing people is like an old west gun slinger’s quick draw. I wait for that moment when somebody says something funny, people are having fun, and everyone has a natural smile. That’s the photo I go for, one that has people shining at their peak, in a natural unposed position, looking their best.

My photos have been seen in a couple of magazines, the LA Times, brochures, at race tracks, advertisements, menu boards, freeway jumbo screens, and more.
