David Doubilet

David Doubilet is a photographer, author and speaker for National Geographic Partners. He has published over 79 stories since 1971 documenting oceans from the equator to the polar ice. David’s enters the sea as a journalist, artist and explorer and his camera bears witness to oceans through the lens of time.

Doubilet has submerged over 27,000 hours in the sea since he first put a Brownie Hawkeye camera in a rubber anesthesiologist’s bag at the age of twelve. He believes that imagery can celebrate, illuminate, honor, humiliate, and educate.

David is the recipient of many photographic awards and Lennart Nilsson Award, Explorers Club Lowell Thomas Award and American Academy of Achievement. He has published many books including the fall 2021 title Two Worlds: Above and Below The Sea. He was named a Contributing Photographer-in-Residence at the National Geographic, NOGI Fellow, a member of the Royal Photographic Society and International Diving Hall of Fame and founding member of the International League of Conservation Photographers. David Doubilet is a Rolex Testimonee since 1994.
