David Doubilet Keynote Speaker for MEAL 2015

David Doubilet has a long and intimate vision into the sea. He has mastered the techniques of working with water and light to become one of the world’s most celebrated underwater photographers and a contributing photographer for National Geographic Magazine where he has published nearly 70 stories since his first assignment in 1971.


Coral Kingdoms and Empires of Ice

David Doubilet is a legend in underwater photography who recently has explored three unique marine environments for National Geographic. Join him in exploring the rich and diverse waters of Kimbe Bay, Papua New Guinea, part of the “coral triangle.” Follow him into the world beneath the Antarctic ice, then north to the Gulf of St. Lawrence to see whales, wolfish and harp seals. David Doubilet will go beyond the published stories to share the reality of “behind-the-camera” adventures.
