National Geographic Through the Lens with Thomas Peschak
Thomas Peschak is an assignment photographer for National Geographic and the Director of Conservation for the Save our Seas Foundation (SOSF). He is a senior fellow of the International League of Conservation Photographers and has been named as one of the 40 most influential nature photographers in the world.
Originally trained as a marine biologist, he retired from science fieldwork in 2004. He became an environmental photojournalist after realizing that he could have a greater conservation impact with photographs than statistics. Yet he remains rooted in marine science through his roles as Director of Conservation for SOSF and Founding/Associate Director of the Manta Trust. He strives to merge photojournalism and cutting edge science to create powerful media projects that tackle some of the most critical marine conservation issues of our time.
Thomas has written and photographed five books and he is a multiple winner in the BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year Awards. In 2011 and 2013 he received World Press Photo Awards for his work.
