George Cathcart is a wildlife and nature photographer specializing in underwater and bird photography. He is a former photojournalist who has been a serious photographer for more than 50 years. After about 10 years as a photojournalist in the 70s, his career went in a different direction until he learned to dive in 2000. Seeing the planet within the planet reawakened his passion for photography, beneath and above the waves, and he retired early about 10 years ago to devote his life (and fortune!) to photography.
His aim as a nature photographer is to create and enhance awareness of the amazing creatures we share this fragile planet with, in hopes that more people will learn how connected we all are with all these creatures.
His favorite underwater subjects are fish portraits and macro explorations of the incredible patterns and colors of sessile creatures (because they don’t move much).
His underwater photo gear is currently Canon 7D camera with 100 mm f/2.8 macro and 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 wide angle. Ikelite housing, Ikelite DS 160 strobes.
