About David and Jennifer:
David Doubilet and Jennifer Hayes are a photographic team for National Geographic magazine focusing on ocean environments. Their photography is a universal language to create a visual voice for a fragile and finite world.
Doubilet began photographing a dark green Atlantic when he first put his Brownie Hawkeye camera in a rubber anesthesiologist’s bag at the age of twelve. He received his first National Geographic assignment while at Boston University. Hayes’ passion for conservation of primitive fishes lead to graduate degrees in zoology and marine ecology that evolved into photography and storytelling to document and share her subjects.
Doubilet and Hayes believe images have the power to inform, illuminate, celebrate, honor, and humiliate —and most importantly, create change. As a team, they wish to promote the power of collaboration and to support emerging ocean advocates of the next generation.
