Photo Camp Flotilla Braves Serious Swell


National Geographic Photo Camp students at the Biscayne BioBlitz caught midnight parrotfish and gray triggerfish on an underwater shoot this afternoon before the high swell forced them to retreat to the relative safety (if not so much comfort) of their wave-pitched boat.


“We were 12 miles from Convoy Point,” said colleague Susan Poulton, “five miles out in the ocean. We had good sightings and got some great photos. But the water was murky, and the ride was a little rough.”


National Geographic photographers and photo editors train teens in the Photo Camp program to share their perspectives and document important issues in their communities with images. Read about the recent Photo Camp: Barbados.
