Your Questions for an NG Photographer

Award-winning photojournalist Brian Skerry specializes in bringing the most fantastic scenes from underwater up to the surface for the rest of us to enjoy. His closeups and animal portraits are both abstractly beautiful and scientifically fascinating.

His images of damaged reefs, thriving ecosystems, and close-encounters with wildlife have inspired people, and helped lead to the creation of Marine Protected Areas around the world. They are also gathered in his new National Geographic book, Ocean Soul in stores and online now.
