Through my photography, I tell stories about research efforts, conservation successes and defeats and work to change peoples perspectives of some of our most misunderstood species. From attempting to portray the lesser viewed calm interactions with a cruising great white to documenting the intimate moment an apex predator comes face to face with the free divers working to conserve their species, with every image I attempt to tell a story, educating the public about these unique encounters and the individuals working behind the scenes to save them. - INKA CRESSWELL
