Since 1980, Amos Nachoum has explored and photographed all major bodies of water, from the North Pole to Antarctica.

On his expeditions, he not only takes photos himself, but also shows other interested photographers how to capture harmonious interactions between humans and animals with the camera.
of his life.
Amos specializes in big animal photography: He dives with blue whales in the Pacific, photographs crocodiles in the Okavango Delta and comes face to face with Great White sharks. He is also one of the very few people who have ever swum with polar bears and photographed them underwater – no wonder the resulting images became an award-winning sensation.
