Brian Skerry

Brian Skerry is an award-winning photographer specializing in marine wildlife and underwater environments. Brian is praised worldwide for his aesthetic sense as well as his journalistic drive for relevance. His uniquely creative images tell stories that not only celebrate the mystery and beauty of the sea, but also help bring attention to the large number of issues that endanger our oceans and their inhabitants.

After three decades of exploring the world’s oceans, Skerry continues to pursue stories that will increase awareness about the sea. He frequently speaks about ocean issues to a variety of different audiences from schoolchildren to corporations.

“The oceans are in trouble,” Skerry says. “There are some serious problems out there that I believe are not clear to many people. My hope is to continually find new ways of creating images and stories that both celebrate the sea yet also highlight environmental problems. Photography can be a powerful instrument for change.”
