Photographer of the Week – Jeff Milisen
By Joseph Tepper, March 10, 2016 @ 06:00 AM (EST)

Jeff Milisen is an observing naturalist first. But being a photographer is a close second. It is his curiosity as a naturalist that fuels his desire to capture images of the ocean’s most mysterious inhabitants—the denizens of the deep that rise up 5,000 feet every night to feed.

Jeff’s stunning images from “black water dives” have captured numerous international awards and continue to delight—and slightly frighten—the imaginations those who view the photos.

Jeff may spend countless nights in the black waters off of Hawaii, but during the day he also enjoys photographing oceanic whitetip sharks, dolphins and many of the Big Island’s other marine life.
