If you’ve ever wondered how your underwater photography could be used in the fight to save our oceans, there’s an essential webinar you should attend on Wednesday, November 9th at 11am US Pacific time. Organized by ocean advocacy organization Mission Blue, the webinar is entitled “Capturing Hope: The Role of Photography in Ocean Conservation” and sees Mission Blue founder Dr. Sylvia Earle and other well-known underwater photographers talk about “their experiences capturing great photos of marine life in a non-intrusive, ethical way,” and share “their favorite photos that they’ve captured that tell a meaningful conservation story.”
The discussion is moderated by Max Bello and in addition to “Her Deepness” includes Christian Vizl, underwater photographer and conservationist; Joakim Odelberg, conservation filmmaker and photojournalist, TV host and Explorers Club Fellow; Tanya Houppermans, underwater photographer/shark naturalist and contributing photographer to the Hatteras Hope Spot; Alex Rose, Science Editor of Ocean Geographic Magazine and Hope Spot Champion of the Bunaken Marine Park Hope Spot; Pier Nirandara, bestselling author, travel writer, film producer, underwater photographer; and Amos Nachoum, wildlife photographer and explorer.
The webinar takes place on Wednesday, November 9th at 11am PT (2pm ET), which is 8pm in Paris and 6am the following day in Sydney. Register for the webinar here. If you can’t attend live, don’t worry: A recording of the webinar will be made available following the event.
