This August I had the chance to join National Geographic Photographer Brian Skerry on a 10-day expedition to the Bahamas to photograph wild atlantic spotted dolphins with researcher Denise Herzing.
Together, we traveled on a 60-foot catamaran between the island of Bimini and the White Sand Ridge area south of Freeport in search of a pod of dolphins Denise has been studying for nearly 30 years.
Brian’s goal was to capture photos that show-in a single frame-the intelligence of dolphins. Below are a few behind-the-scenes images from the expedition taken by Hussain Aga Khan.
