ABOUT THE PROGRAM/SPEAKER
Our February 16 speaker is Amos Nachoum. He is an explorer.
Amos is a master at photographing big animals and as an expedition leader to remote locations worldwide. His vision is to raise awareness of the ocean giants in their natural habitats.
His images and stories reflect respect and compassion for endangered, threatened animals and wilderness. His photographs strive to dispel the myth of “dangerous” wildlife. His goal is to share with other people first-hand the joy of harmonious interactions between man and animal.
Amos leads wildlife photography expeditions through his company BigAnimals.com. He and his guests free dive with blue whales off the Eastern Pacific, scuba dive in Africa’s Okavango delta with crocodiles, with the great white shark and leopard seal in Antarctica, as well as polar bear and orca in the high Arctic.
Since 1980, he has explored every significant body of water from the North Pole to Antarctica.
Amos’s photos and essays have appeared in publications including National Geographic, Time, Life, The New York Times, Condé Nast Traveler, Le Figaro, Terra Sauvage, Airone, Der Spiegel, Unterwasser, Explorer Journal and Fifty Fathoms.Amos’s photography won the Nikon contest.
He is a two-time winner in the animal behavioral category of the BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year Award. In 2012 he placed first in the American Photography Artist competition.
Amos lives in Pacific Grove CA, USA. He uses Nikon cameras and Seacam housing and strobes.
