Photographer of the Week – Fabrice Jaine
By Joanna Lentini, March 30, 2017 @ 06:00 AM (EST)

Photographer of the Week, Fabrice Jaine, began his journey into underwater photography while working as a marine scientist off the coast of South Africa in 2008. Through his work with great whites, Fabrice hoped his images would help raise awareness about sharks. Armed with a camera from his very first dives, his work eventually brought him to the Great Barrier Reef and face to face with another revered pelagic: the manta ray. It was at this point that his connection with the ocean and photography worlds solidified.

Perhaps his lifelong fascination with the ocean is what makes Fabrice's imagery so intoxicating. His images encapsulate the essence of our ocean and engage viewers with their moody nature. They create a sense of wonder and exploration, and remind us that there is still so much to discover on our ocean planet.
