Amos Nachoum, one of the world’s foremost underwater photographers, has led National 41-Ad-Bd-amos nachoumGeographic expedition teams with Dr. Eugenie Clark, Dr. Sylvia Earle, astronaut Buzz Aldrin, and Dr. Alex Antoniou, and has co-produced documentaries with Stan Waterman. His photos and essays have appeared in more than 500 publications in North America, Europe, and Japan, including National Geographic magazine, Ocean Realm, Island, Outside, Rodale’s Scuba Diving, Time, Life, The New York Times, Condé Nast Traveler, Le Figaro, Terra Sauvage, Airone, and Mondo Somerso. Amos co-founded Israel’s Marine National Park on the Red Sea. His cutting-edge adventure-travel program BigAnimals.com provides divers with opportunities to observe, photograph, and interact with the most magnificent inhabitants of the sea: white sharks, orcas, dophins, sailfish and blue, sperm and humpback whales. “Through observation and interaction,” Amos says, “people can learn to truly understand and respect some of the most impressive citizens of our water planet.” http://www.biganimals.com
