Amos Nachoum

Whether he is free diving with blue whales off the Eastern Pacific, diving in the Okavango delta with crocodiles or face to face with the great white shark, Amos Nachoum is a master of photographing big animals. Since 1980, he has explored every significant body of water from the North Pole to Antarctica. Amos’s photographic vision is to raise awareness of ocean giants in their habitats. His images reflect respect and compassion for animals and wilderness. His photographs strive to dispel the myth of “dangerous” wildlife and show harmonious interactions between man and animal. Amos is also an explorer and leads wildlife photography expeditions with his company BigAnimals.com. 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 2-time winner in the animal behavioural category of the BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year. In 2012 he placed first in the American Photography Artist competition. Amos lives in Pacific Grove CA, USA. He photographs with Canon camera and Seacam gear.
