Meet Brian Skerry award-winning National Geographic underwater photographer, filmmaker, author, Director of Ocean Matters, and highly sought after lecturer. Brian uses his international platform to draw attention to the many environmental problems plaguing the sea and offers hope through stories of the ocean’s resilience.
Unique within the field of underwater photography is Skerry’s ability to pursue subjects of great diversity. His nearly year-round assignment schedule frequently finds him in environments of extreme contrast from tropical coral reefs to diving beneath polar ice. While on assignment he has lived on the bottom of the sea, spent months aboard fishing boats, and traveled in everything from snowmobiles to canoes to the Goodyear blimp to get the picture.
His accolades, awards, and recognition are extensive, emphasizing his passion, bravery, energy, and excellence in the pursuit of ocean conservation through photojournalism. In this quest, Brian is also Director of Ocean Matters, an organization that engages teens from around the world who serve as ambassadors for the ocean. They plan conservation events around the globe as well as working together to create and seed conservation projects of their own design.
Meet Brian and members of Ocean Matters for a rare evening of storytelling, spectacular marine photography, raffle prizes, great food & drink, and discover how teens are making a difference to the health of our oceans! Visit their website at www.oceanmatters.org
