Thomas Peschak ()
If you want to see some incredible—and I’m talking incredible—photos of sea life, you must check out Thomas Peschak’s Instagram account! One look and you’ll realize why he’s an assignment photographer for National Geographic. He’s also the Director of Conservation for the Save Our Seas Foundation (SOSF) and he’s been named one of the 40 most influential nature photographers in the world.
Thomas was originally trained as a marine biologist, but he retired from science fieldwork in 2004. He became an environmental photojournalist after realizing that he could have a greater conservation impact with photographs than statistics. Yet he remains rooted in marine science through his roles as Director of Conservation for SOSF and Founding/Associate Director of the Manta Trust. He strives to merge photojournalism and cutting-edge science to create powerful media projects that tackle some of the most critical marine conservation issues of our time. He has written and photographed five books: “Currents of Contrast,” “Great White Shark,” “Wild Seas Secret Shores,” “Lost World,” and his latest, “Sharks and People,” released in 2013 and chronicling the relationship between people and sharks around the world. He’s also a multiple-time winner in the BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year Awards and in 2011 and 2013 he received World Press Photo Awards for his work.
