Amsterdam, the Netherlands, 3rd February 2020 – Award-winning wildlife photographer and Nikon Ambassador, George Karbus, has released a stunning ocean-based image series, inspired by over 15 years of travelling the globe capturing the beauty of the underwater world and its species.
The images take us beneath the surface of our world’s vast oceans, to encourage audiences to connect with a natural environment often hidden from sight. Equipped with the D850, D5, Z 7 and NIKKOR lenses, George hopes his images will give a glimpse as to what life is like for our marine life, showing that in order to protect and preserve our world, we must go back to nature and appreciate it.
Having spent his youth snorkeling and freediving, George’s photography journey began when he moved to Lahinch, a small town located off the west coast of Ireland. After weeks of exploring the Atlantic waters, it was here he encountered a solitary bottlenose dolphin. George began photographing the dolphin and observing its movements, learning how to swim alongside such ocean mammals with care and respect, building his understanding and ability to best to document them.
