the Photographers

Most of the images on this website were captured by scientists using a Remotely Operated Vehicle (see Science), but there are many passionate ocean photographers who have contributed incredible imagery of South Africa’s ocean treasures. We’d particularly like to thank Peter Chadwick, Steve Benjamin and Geoff Spiby for their substantial contributions.

Other contributors include Peter Timm, Laurent Ballesta, Lara Atkinson, Jock Currie, Ryan Daly, Simon Elwin, Zoleka Filander, Grant van der Heever, Georgina Jones, Ryan Palmer, Astrid Blumer, Luc Hosten, Robin Leslie, Judy Mann, Kerry Sink and Otto Whitehead.

Thank you to all of you! Please keep sharing the beauty of South Africa’s oceans with the world.
