FUTURE 2023 SPEAKER – DMITRY KOKH

SEVEN AMAZING STORIES

With Dmitry Kokh

In this photography lecture, I’ll talk about seven amazing encounters that I’ve had in the wild, how chances are not accidental, the importance of process versus result, and how a single photo changed my life. This presentation will be via Zoom; there is NO in person meeting this month.

Dmitry Kokh is an IT entrepreneur and a wildlife photographer – specializing in large marine animals. It all started with a serendipitous underwater shot in 2017. Since then his travels have taken him to Antarctica, Norway, the Red Sea, Cuba, Africa, South and Southeast Asia as well as remote corners of Russia (Kamchatka, the
Solovetsky Islands, Baikal, Chukotka). His passion started in childhood, but it was scuba diving that opened up a whole new curious world, which he continues to explore through his work. The goal is to capture images that reflect energy and full immersion, focusing on storytelling and bringing awareness of our planet’s natural heritage.

Dmitry is the finalist and recipient of awards including Wildlife Photographer of the Year, Nature Photographer of the Year, National Geographic, Ocean Geographic, Siena Drone Awards, and ”The Most Beautiful Country”. He is a regular participant of the Golden Turtle, Wild Underwater World, and Moscow Dive Show exhibitions. Dmitry has gained global recognition for his recent photographs of polar bears on Kolyuchin Island that have taken the news and social media by storm.
