David Doubilet

Principal Expedition Photographer & Steering Committee Ambassador

David Doubilet is the world’s most celebrated underwater photographer with over sixty five stories published in National Geographic. David challenges himself is to redefine photographic boundaries each time he enters the water. His passion is the undersea majesty of light and how to capture it. Completely at home on a coral reef, a World War II wreck, a deep dark fjord or among the great giants in our sea, David has relentlessly pursued the many hidden layers of coral reefs around the globe. His cold-water work has immersed him in the rich waters of New Zealand, Tasmania, Scotland, Japan, the Northwest Atlantic and Northeast Pacific. Recent photographic journeys have taken him into some of the largest freshwater systems on our planet such as the great Okavango Delta system in Botswana and the St. Lawrence River. David was the principal photographer for all three Elysium Epic expeditions to the Antarctic, Arctic and Coral Triangle.
