Ad campaign for Certina watches with Sea Turtle Conservancy in Panama

 

 

 

A newly tagged leatherback sea turtle.

Creating images in a dynamic atmosphere often poses challenges and lots of surprises. Recently we traveled to a remote stretch of beach on the Caribbean side of Panama to document tagging of leatherback sea turtles with the Sea Turtle Conservancy. Certina watches, has partnered with the Conservancy to create a Sea Turtle Conservancy watch that will help promote, support the Sea Turtle Conservancy and provide transmitters to help learn more about sea turtles. Certina needed images and video of the watch used in the field! Here are some images and also a short video I made to highlight the journey. Certina will be making a longer more refined video for the public.


 


Collaboration with BBC Earth

I have had the honor to work with BBC earth a couple times.  Previously at the America premiere of Blue Planet 2 last December.  They reached out and wanted to use my photo of a turtle trying to eat a plastic bag on their social campaign.  I am grateful that I can have so many eyes on my images to hopefully get the attention to start conserving and have more awareness of our planet, thanks BBC Earth!
