Over the past three decades, Brian Skerry has spent over 10,000 hours underwater, photographing marine wildlife and underwater environments. He's shot over 25 feature stories for National Geographic and this year was honored as National Geographic's Explorer of the Year. Ten years ago, Brian pitched a story idea to National Geographic, he wanted to photograph southern right whales in the remote waters off of New Zealand. This was a risky venture, and he wasn't sure what he'd find. Turns out his instincts were right and he spent several days interacting with an uncontacted group of these incredible marine mammals. Ten years on, we'll revisit this epic adventure!
