David Doubilet was born in 1946. He began snorkeling in New Jersey at the age of 12 and started his photography using a Brownie Hawkeye camera. He is one of the most prolific underwater photographers around today. He says his goal as a photographer is to “redefine photographic boundaries”. He is known mostly for the work he does for National Geographic Magazine. He discovered his desire to show the underwater world to the public while he was a dive instructor in the Bahamas. He really pushes the boundaries of photography with every photo. His control and knowledge of successful lighting situations and how to use them within his compositions really help make him a true God among photographers. He is extremely famous for his work with sharks particularly the great white. Some of the shots he gets of them in action are so beautiful it’s hard to describe. I feel that he is a great help to the preservation of the reefs as well. His pictures are so beautiful it really helps people fall in love with the reefs and the creatures that reside within them. Under the water there is another world. David Doubilet does an amazing job bringing this world to light. He really had a major part in making me fall in love with nature photography.
