Shaun Wolfe, 28, is a photojournalist, filmmaker, and conservationist from Los Angeles, CA. He spent his formative years on the west end of Catalina Island where he learned to scuba dive and became passionate about conservation and environmentalism. The goal of his imagery is to get his audience to consider their relationship and appreciation of the natural and cultural worlds by bringing them to life. He received the prestigious National Park Service Internship through Our World-Underwater Scholarship Society® in 2017, which allowed him to further explore his photographic interests. The internship allowed him to travel to remote corners of our oceans to capture his images, often layered with a human subject, charismatic landscape, or impressive animal.
Shaun is currently based out of Santa Barbara, CA, having recently finishing his master's degree at the Bren School of Environmental Science and Management at the University of California, Santa Barbara focusing in Coastal Marine Resources Management and Strategic Environmental Communication and Media. In addition to media, he has an extensive background in public speaking, marine science, scuba diving, wilderness medicine, and has been on many scientific expeditions.
His client list includes the US Department of the Interior, National Geographic, The New Yorker Magazine, National Park Service, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), National Atmospheric and Oceanic Administration (NOAA), Southern California Edison, Florida Sea Grant, BIOMA Travel, University of California Santa Barbara, the University of Florida, and the Boy Scouts of America. Additionally, his films have screened at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, International Ocean Film Festival, and Waimea Ocean Film Festival.
He is available for assignments both locally and worldwide.
