Arguably the most well-known underwater photographer in the world with an endless list of publications and awards: David Doubilet’s books are classics of photography, his work for National Geographic is legendary. And it all started when 12-year-old David took his first underwater pictures in New Jersey.
It’s been a while since his first picture appeared in National Geographic Magazine in 1972, but nowadays, we all know David as a living legend. A dedicated National Geographic Photographer, he has now spent five decades exploring and documenting developments in the most remote corners of the world, tropical coral reefs, beautiful freshwater lakes and the harsh habitats beneath the polar ice.
